CP S14 EP01 2020

Happy New Year.  Back in the office, and ready to grind.  I hope you had a super fantabulous holiday season.

I made a change to how we do the MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting).  Instead of voting to KEEP or DELETE the song from the CP library, I’m asking you to RATE THE MUSIC 1 (worst) to 5 (best).

Congratulations to the winners in the FoCOMA (Fort Collins Musicians Association) 2019 Peer Awards, held Sunday Jan 12 2020 at Washington’s Fort Collins (a CP supporter).

Along with all the other winners, the Fort Collins based Americana band Whippoorwill took home Album of the Year, Video of the Year, Performance of the Year and Americana/folk Band of the Year.  Whippoorwill’s Alysia Kraft took home Front-Person of the Year honors .. both for her efforts in Whippoorwill and in Pattie Fiasco. 

Among the evening’s highlights was a live appearance by the Beeves, one of the hottest up and coming rock bands in the region today. It’s pretty easy to see why they are, based on their brief two song set.

The Subdudes latest, Lickskillet, breaks the TOP 5 most reported Colorado titles in Roots Music Report this week (see below)


VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

It’s pretty rare that I lead off with a video for a song I haven’t been able to play on the show yet, but the new single from Nathaniel Rateliff came out before it arrived in my in-box.

If you’re expecting a new roots R&B record, you’ll be sad.  If you were hoping for new direction, you’ll be disappointed.  This is a throwback record in Nathaniel’s diverse catalog of songs, and styles.  Before there was Nathaniel Rateliff the rhythm and blues artist, there was Nathaniel the folk artist.  Tossed in for good measure was Nathaniel the alternative rock artist (Born In the Flood) and indie folk-rock artist (the Wheel).

This won’t be an easy record to listen to. Nathaniel has suffered a divorce and the death of his friend and songwriting collaborator Richard Swift. We may love the Night Sweats swagger and swing, but Nathaniel has always been best when he has stripped away the layers and noise, and gotten quieter.

The Missouri born Denver transplant is destined for a Grammy Award nomination someday, and the kind of long career enjoyed by songwriters like John Prine (who he’s rumored to be doing an album with). Songs like this only add to the pedigree.

CP BEST OF DECADE – The Bottom Five

I’ve been playing Colorado music on Colorado radio since 1978, but our history of award winning (and award worthy) popular music goes back much further.  Over the past ten years, Colorado has experienced one of the most explosive eras in the history of Colorado music …if not THE MOST explosive era.

This past decade has  arguably produced the most and the biggest hit-makers and award winners in Colorado music history, along with some of the most memorable music of the past fifty plus years.

I picked 30 titles I thought best represented the Colorado Playlist over the past ten years, 2010-2019.  I asked you to order them from 1-30.  I was somewhat surprised at the ones you did NOT vote for.  Maybe it was the songs I selected from their various releases… hmmm.


At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music.


The Bottom Five (25-30)

  • Chuck Pyle – Love Will Find A Way
  • Churchill – Change
  • Esme Patterson – No River
  • Gerald Albright – Slam Dunk
  • Otis Taylor – Red Meat

Chuck Pyle, aka the “Zen Cowboy,” passed away at age 70 in 2015 at his home near Palmer Lake.  Over his 40 year Colorado music career he released 13 albums, including “The Spaces In Between” in 2010, his only studio release of the decade.

Churchill was a national breakout band from Denver, that broke up in 2013 with two arena shows and a Jay Leno appearance left on the table, after touring successfully with Pink and signing with major label A&M/Octone.

Esme Patterson was a member of the Denver based indie folk-rock band Paper Bird that she parted with in 2014.  She released three records from 2012-2016.

All Princes, I (2012)
Woman to Woman (2015)
We Were Wild (2016)

Gerald Albright was nominated for a Grammy for “Slam Dunk;” one of eight total Grammy nominations, and the fourth consecutive between 2010-2014. A Colorado based musician since 2006, he released six albums during the decade 2010-2019

Pushing the Envelope (2010)
24/7 with Norman Brown (2012)
Summer Horns with Dave Koz, Mindi Abair, Richard Elliot (2013)
Slam Dunk (2014)
G (2016)
30 (2018)

Otis Taylor is the most awarded musician in Colorado music history and was inducted into the 2020 Colorado Music Hall of Fame class on December 3, 2019. Otis released five albums over the past decade –

Clovis People Vol 3 (2010)
Contraband (2012)
My World Is Gone (2013)
Hey Joe Opus (2015)
Fantasizing About Being Black (2017)


Maybe I just picked the wrong songs to represent this incredible body of award winning and popular music.  Pick any of these five artists and bands to discover some of the best of Colorado music 2010-2019.  And share with your friends, please.

Happy New Year 2020

CP S13 BEST OF 2019 PT 2

As I enter the 14th season of this show, it’s worth saying that when I started this show it was because so many of my closest friends and family had no idea who was who from Colorado.

Folks didn’t know that multi-Grammy winner Dianne Reeves went to George Washington High School in Denver or that Philip Bailey and two of the other members of Earth, Wind & Fire went to East High School; nor did they know that Indie.Arie was born in Aurora… or that such famous musicians as Dan Fogelberg, John Oates and others have made Colorado their home over the years.

And, of course, most didn’t know who the bands were with just a couple of Colorado residents, and those firmly made up of local players in our communities.

In light of that, we have Grammy nominated acts in our BEST of 2019 who did not live here full time (Indie.Arie) and whose bands only have two members living here (Lettuce).  And one who is a native of Johannesburg, South Africa who has a farm outside of Boulder, and tours internationally (Gregory Alan Isakov).  Of course, the Lumineers, who scored Album of the Year is originally from NYC.

We are a state of immigrants and native Coloradoans, who all contribute to our incredible music scene.  Let’s keep it that way.

CP S13 BEST OF 2019 PART 1 FAN FAVS

Happy Holidaze!  Every year, I put up the Fan Favorite Poll.  It’s a race to see which band can get the most votes, from their fans and others who discover them via this poll.  This year’s “race” was no exception.  The LP/EP poll got over 1100 votes.  The “single release” poll over 900 votes.  The Video Pick of the Year poll garnered nearly 200 votes.  And the results?


At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music.

 


FAN FAVORITE LP/EP

The Fan Favorite LP/EP TOP 5 features two NEW artists/bands on the scene; Denver hip-hop/blues artist Avery J and the BA, and Boulder Americana-country artist Jackie & the Racket.  This is the second time that Southern Colorado husband and wife folk duo Pint & a Half has graced the Best of the year list, the first in the Fan Favorite poll.

Merry funksters Float Like A Buffalo, one of the hottest up and coming bands in 2019, rounded out their fifth year with a Red Rocks appearance and CP fan favorites in LP/EP of the Year, and Single Release of the Year. Folk-rock outfit South to Cedars, from the Longmont area, makes their debut as a Fan Favorite in the CP Best of the Year.

    1. Pint & A Half – Not to Forget
    2. Float Like a Buffalo – Back from Nowhere
    3. South to Cedars – Tell Everyone
    4. Avery J & the BA – See U at the Crossroads
    5. Jackie & The Racket – Goal Digger EP

FAN FAVORITE SINGLE RELEASE

Float Like A Buffalo fans voted both their LP Back from Nowhere, and their single release Gone By Morning as BEST OF for 2019.  WTG fans!  Southern fried country rock Williams Brothers Band is from Grand Junction, where the show is broadcast on KAFM.  Glad to see GJ steppin’ up and voting for one of their own.

The Barrelors, Lola Rising and the Born Readies all make their debut as Fan Favorites for 2019. Alternative southern country blues rock to reggae infused sunshine pop and garage rock lead the way from 1-3.

    1. The Barrelors – Ticket to Ride
    2. Lola Rising – Gravity
    3. The Born Readies – Mean Genes
    4. Float Like A Buffalo – Gone By Morning
    5. The William Brothers Band – Outlaw Country

FAN FAVORITE VIDEO

Durango/Nashville artist Caitlin Cannon‘s modern honky-tonkin’ rocker “Toolbag” leads the way with the sunshine psychedelic-punk rock of Boulder’s The Beeves rounding out this set.  The Beeves have a new album in the works, produced by Nate Cook of the Yawpers, who has been championing the band.

WhiteWater Ramble released a video trilogy this year entitled “A Widow’s Lament.”  The short film won the Best Music Video category at the International Indie Short Fest in Los Angeles.  Part 2 (Hollow) and 3 (Kentucky Windage) are dark stories, relating to gun control issues and domestic violence. Patrick Sites and company turn up the southern rock vibe to fit the dark Southern motif of the stories.

The Copper Children are not a new band in the scene.  Their 2014 debut, Drugs and Liquor, has been played over 1.7 MILLION times on Spotify. A strong regional following came out to get them a CP Fan Favorite Video Pick of 2019.

    1. Caitlin Cannon – Toolbag
    2. WhiteWater Ramble – Kentucky Windage
    3. WhiteWater Ramble – Hollow (feat. Chris Pandolfi)
    4. The Copper Children – Don’t Be So Shy
    5. The Beeves – Jamie’s Revenge

CP S13 EP49 2019

MONDAY DEC 16, 2019 

Thanks for all the FAN FAVORITE votes for LP, Single, and Video of the year.  Those polls are now closed.  The BEST OF 2019 show will air DEC 28-JAN 03 2020.

Now it’s time to direct your attention to the CP BEST OF THE DECADE 2010 – 2019.  This poll will close on December 28. The Best of the Decade show will air Jan 4-10 2020.

I got asked the other day why I added the new Mary Chapin Carpenter single, “Our Man Walter Cronkite” to this week’s playlist.  Two reasons:  One, it was produced here in Colorado by Jamie Mefford (Gregory Alan Isakov, Nathaniel Rateliff) at Colorado Sound recording studios in Denver.  Two, it’s been reported that she purchased a home in Boulder.  See VIDEO PICK of the Week below.

Equally, Philip Bailey‘s latest also got added, because he’s a Denver native who is one of the country’s top award winning songwriters, and vocalists.  Congratulations to Philip and his bandmates in Earth Wind & Fire for their Kennedy Center Honors.  A somewhat and relatively minor award would be induction into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame, which I can almost certainly see happening once the new Hall is built and open.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

See above notes about Mary Chapin Carpenter, and the reason why she made the show this week.  The song alone would be enough to earn high weekly honors, given as it does the subject matter and the relevance to what’s going on socially and politically in our country today.

CP S13 EP48 2019

MONDAY DEC 09, 2019 – If you attended the Colorado Music Hall of Fame induction last Tuesday, thanks for being there.  It was an incredibly special night.  There were several highlights, not the least of which is our newest music venue, Mission Ballroom.

The high point of the night (besides the brilliance of the Mission Ballroom) was the Tommy Bolin Tribute Band featuring special guests Warren Haynes, Joe Bonamassa and Joey Porter (the Motet). The band finished the night with Stratus, an improvisational jam that showcased one Lucas Parker, a  young 24 year old Tommy Bolin clone, who stood toe to toe and eye to eye with the superstar lead guitarists on stage with him.

CMHoF inductee Fred Gowdy was resplendent in dress and performance, riding on top of another solid performance by Chris Daniels & the Kings, who he’s been performing with for several years now.  Performing “hits” from his days as a co-founder of Freddi-Henchi (RIP Henchi) Fred stepped right up to the edge of the stage and showed why he and his partner were on the edge of national fame in the 60s and early 70s.

Otis Taylor’s set was almost overshadowed by a set-stealing Cassie Taylor, Otis’ oldest daughter, who appeared playing banjo and singing backup.  Otis is not known as a verbose performer, generally letting his blues do his talking.  Cassie picked up the slack and shined as a vocalist supporting her Dad.  The love was palpable.

Zephyr, featuring David Givens and his wife Anna along with middle era Zephyr members Jock Bartley (guitar) and Michael Wooten (drums) turned in an adequate opening set that unfortunately lacked cohesiveness, and displayed a clear lack of necessary rehearsal time. It’s also too bad that Eddie Turner did not make an appearance as the final lineup of the band featured his guitar work.

If you’re an Americana country fan (as in non-pop-Hashville country) check out the newest lineup for Casey James Prestwood and the Burning Angels.  We caught them at a house concert hosted by photographer Dan Sidor, who’s also a member of the Threadbarons.   Casey has managed to land two young 19 and 20 year old players on guitar and pedal steel respectively, who are bound to become significant players in our scene.  The young guitarist is brilliant for his age and experience.

Sad news hit the scene over the weekend, when it was announced that Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont will cease live music effective Jan 1 2020, after a ten year run.  No word on where the Monday night blues jam hosted by Erik Boa, or the Sunday bluegrass pick hosted by Bonnie & Taylor Sims will wind up.  Talent buyer Danny Shafer says that the other locations will continue to host live music (for the foreseeable future).

Don’t forget to vote for your favorites LP/EP, SINGLE release, and Video of 2019.

Other than some reshuffling, the TOP 5 at Roots Music Report remains the same this week, and there were no NEW adds of any significant reported.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Cary Morin is a Colorado treasure.  I’ve had the pleasure of knowing him since about 1990 when his band the Atoll played the long gone Linden’s in Fort Collins – a Monday night residency that had lines a block long.  Today, he’s considered as one of the top acoustic pickers in the country, an award winning blues artist who’s accomplished playing has taken him from Europe to the Lincoln Center in Washington DC.  Today is Cary’s birthday.  Happy Birthday Cary.

**NOTE** grab some coffee (or tea or …) and enjoy.  This week’s video pick is over an hour long.

MONDAY DEC 02, 2019 – Hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend.  While I was snowed in, I put up the  2019 CP Listener Poll for LP/EP.   There are 154 entries this year.  I know it’s very tempting to vote for JUST your friend’s record, or that of your one and only favorite bands or artists, but it would be great if you’d discover and vote for others as well.  You get up to FIVE selections for LP/EP and for VIDEO PICK 2019 and for SINGLE RELEASE 2019.

Congratulations to Tommy Bolin, Zephyr, Otis Taylor and Freddi-Henchi (“Freddi Love” Gowdy and the late Marvin “Henchi” Graves) for their induction into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame this week.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

BODRAGAZ…  It’s no secret that I don’t play metal, or anything close, on the show.  But, occasionally I find a video like this that I need to share with you.  BODRAGAZ has been around awhile now.  They started out in 1996 and have played internationally, as well as having their own Pandora station.
