MONDAY SEPT 10, 2018 –Happy Monday. As seems to be somewhat normal over the years, we’re in a bit of a lull for new releases right now. And it’s a great time for a vacation. So I’m taking one. I don’t see it as likely that I’ll publish a post next Monday the 17th since I’ll be on the road somewhere between Denver and Zion in Utah.
The biggest news of the week broke on FB over the weekend when Andy Palmer announced an “indefinite hiatus” from making music to focus on things closer to home – and heart – family and his children. In the meantime, he’s set to release his newest video, produced by John Grigsby, for “The Switch” – the lead single from his last album. The video has already garnered an official invitation to the 2018 Westfield International Film Festival. Watch for the video here in a couple of weeks.
In his post Andy let us know that “All that is to say that this fool is dialing down gigging in place of opening up to other pursuits. Seems fitting that I’ll wrap up this run on October 20, my wedding day 11 short years ago, at The Walnut Room, a Denver venue I’ve loved since day one and which has always warmly welcomed me in.”
At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music.
VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
Many folks today don’t know, or don’t remember, that acclaimed FOLK (yes, I said folk) artist Jill Sobule is originally from Denver, and that her mom still lives and works here. I’m pretty stoked to have new music from Jill I’m sharing this week – from a video she released in June off her upcoming new album Nostalgia Kills. The new single however is not “folky” at all, but leans with a snap-crackle-pop of the sort we would have expected following her 1995 self-titled sophomore release that produced her biggest hit, I Kissed A Girl.
