Sunset along Pueblo’s Riverwalk Summer 2021
Monday DEC 13, 2021 – We’re less than three weeks away from the end of 2021 and the Best Of the year show and year end charts. I guess it doesn’t take a brain scientist to figure out that Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats album The Future will be the number one album. They are, after all, the most popular band in recent memory. BUT – will Colorado Playlist listener and band fans pick them as #1?
This week’s TOP 5 finds Cortez, Colorado folk duo Maddy & Kev landing at #3 with Animal Electricity dropping into the 4th position and Claire Heywood lands back in the TOP 5.
MMMM this week features new music from the Jackson Cloud Odyssey, Corey Harris and Our Violet Room. The last time I caught Jackson Cloud live he was fronting a classic blues-rock band – but that was a few years ago now. His new album is full blown prog-rock/psychedelia than anything he’s known for live.
Corey Harris is a native Colorado musician who moved away after high school many decades ago. His new album is currently charting TOP 3 in the TOP 50 Colorado Album Chart at Roots Music Report.
Our Violet Room is a new project by Denver via Los Angeles singer-songwriter Matthew Birch. The new single also features Emma Cole from Wildermiss.
