Happy Monday Morning. This week’s Monday Morning Music Meeting (MMMM) is filled with some tasty video releases, so no need for a Video Pick of the Week, although both the Reverend Freakchild and the Blake Brown & the American Dust Choir videos could easily have owned that slot this week – as tasty as each of them are.
There are six new cuts this week to KEEP or DELETE – your vote matters.
I’m particularly happy to share the new Kid Astronaut (Jon Shockness) with you this week. I’ve been a fan of his since his days with Air Dubai. A few years ago he became the co-founder of Conscious Creatives, an artist network that creates opportunities and support for artists and creators to meet, collaborate and showcase their work.
Reverend Freakchild is a relative newcomer to the Colorado music scene. Originally from New York, by way of Hawaii, the Reverend is studying at Naropa University where he’s pursuing a Masters of Divinity Degree. He has performed at Carnegie Hall and Avery Fischer Hall and has had music featured in many TV programs and commercials, and national radio advertising campaigns.
Robin Lyn is another new/not-new artist in our scene. Currently a psycho-therapist in Boulder, Robin spent nearly a decade on the road out of Nashville, touring Asia, Europe and the US – often performing upwards of six nights a week, before she decided to settle down in Colorado.
What you’ll find below are new songs on the show this week … listen and let me know which ones you think I should keep in the Colorado Playlist, and which I should delete.
NOTE: In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp, Reverbnation or YouTube.
