Monday September 2, 2019 – Well, it’s official. Happy Labor Day. Summer is over … in 18 days LOL. Today is supposed to hit 100. I’m looking forward to cooler temperatures, and the rush of music about to hit my desk in time for BEST OF 2019 consideration.
August was FANTASTIC! Not only were all the festivals and live shows killer, but you crushed the stats for this site – best since 2015. Thank you!
Already sitting on my desk waiting for some airtime, is the debut from band guru Mark Bleisner, former manager for Big Head Todd & the Monsters, and Lyle Lovett among others. Mark celebrates his 70th birthday with the release called “Jurassic Mark” on which he plays drums (which he did long before becoming a band manager) and guitar and sings.
Also on the way next week is the new album from the Samples called “Indian Summer.” An initial quick first listen leads me to believe this is a very personal album for original founding member Sean Kelly. Sean has dealt with lost marriage, a child caught in the middle, and a significant change in management. It’s a personal album, that unlike the unevenness of his previous effort, America (2014), comes off sounding strong and self-assured.
