Monday Jan 16, 2023 – I don’t think a week goes by that I’m not absolutely amazed by the music in our state. 

This week’s featured debuts include jazz from the BTTRFLY Quinet, made up of members from Lettuce and Big Gigantic; and electro-pop from Sugar Nova, a duo that features Luke Miller from the band Lotus.  Roger Green was formerly a guitarist with the CzarsDaniel Rodriguez is a founding member of Elephant Revival. Gabriel Mervine is a longtime member of the Motet.   Make sure to let us know what you think – “I like it,” “MEH, it’s ok,” “I don’t like it.”

If you’re a musician, or in the business of music, or you’re just interested, I will be making a couple of appearances, talking about …radio. Jan 29, I’ll be at the Upstream Songwriting Retreat in Lyons. Feb 1, I will be talking about radio at the Auditorium Music Business Conference in Denver.

CP S17 EP01 BEST OF 2022

The Milky Way from Fort Garland Colorado, June 2022, courtesy Claire Mannato

On the beach in North Carolina

Monday January 02, 2023 – What a fun year we just had. Claire and I traveled A LOT! We visited Arizona, California (twice .. Joshua Tree Nat’l Park and Redwood Nat’l Park), Idaho, Oregon, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, and Utah.

Of course, along the way we also visited several wonderful locations for Milky Way pictures (and fly fishing) in Colorado, evidenced by the pictures I’ve shared all year.

Colorado artists (any and all with direct ties) produced an abundance of world class music in 2022. Five artists/bands with direct ties to Colorado earned Grammy Award nominations: Gerald Albright, The Infamous Stringdusters, Ingrid Andress, Judy Collins, and Yonder Mountain String Band.

Yonder Mountain String Band, the String Cheese Incident, Leftover Salmon, Hot Rize and the Fox Theater were inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame. And just as the year was about to end, the Class of ’23 was announced.

And finally, thank you for being one of the record number of visitors to the site over the past nine years.
