CP S15 EP02 2021

Jan 11 2021 – What a difference a week makes.  The WEEKLY TOP 5 is all new this week, with Nathaniel Rateliff finally falling out of the TOP 10.  Cary Morin re-enters at #2 with Colorado roots supergroup Del Shamen at #1.  Alt punk-rockers Bud Bronson & the Good Timers enter the TOP 5 this week with newcomers Jess Parsons and XIUHTEZCATL

Over the past few weeks I’ve been pushing Stay At Home Silent Disco #2  presented by Tyler, The Creative (not the rap artist) on behalf of Rocky Mountain Music Relief, Inc – a CO 501c3 non-profit dedicated to helping our community.  We raised over $3000 to help in the cause.

Are you a working professional member of the Colorado music community?  I am also.  As you may know, I founded Rocky Mountain Music Relief to help out in times just like now. I know how hard things are.  Mortgage, utilities, transportation and food are just a few of the things that need attend4ing to.  If you truly are in need, please reach out.  www.rockymountainmusicrelief.org

Middle Class Rock Star is a podcast hosted by  Andy Sydow.  Every week or so I feature a 7 to 8 minute segment featuring  a conversation Andy has with some of our scene’s top music makers and industry personalities.  This week’s guest is Cary Morin.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

CP S12 EP48 2018

Monday Dec 17, 2018 – Just a reminder to VOTE for your favorites of 2018 in the fan/listener poll.  There’s been a bit of a change in the running – with Sarah Snead Hornbuckle‘s fans rallying to make the pop-country ballad “All I’ve Got” the front-runner fan favorite video as we enter the final week of the polling.  The sweaty Greeley soul band the Burroughs is still slightly in front of Denver’s roots-blues-rockers Silver and Smoke for Fan Favorite LP/EP of 2018.
