CP S12 EP44 2018

 Monday Nov 19, 2018 – This is my pre-Thanksgiving post.  As my girlfriend and I sat and watched news coverage of the California fires this past week, I couldn’t help but think about our own state and just how easily it would be for that to happen to us here.  Natural disasters destroy everything.

One of the reasons we launched Rocky Mountain Music Relief a year ago was so that when natural disasters affect the musicians in our own region we’d have a way to help out.   While our mission statement declares that we exist to help out musicians in the Rocky Mountain region (Colorado mostly) – I hope we can all contribute to helping those in need in California.

I’ll have big news coming in Q1 2019, but let me tease you a bit.  Next year when I thank stations for airing this program there will very likely be one more.  KFFR (Winter Park) has acknowledged they love the show and want to air it.  They’re hoping for early 2019.  Keep your fingers crossed.  No deal is a done deal until the show is added and aired.

Thank you to KRFC (Fort Collins), KJAC (Greeley/Front Range), KDNK (Carbondale), KOTO (Telluride), KSUT (Ignacio/Durango), KLZR (Westcliffe), KCMJ (Colorado Springs), KAFM (Grand Junction), KOYC (Pueblo), KZYR (Vail) and KHEN (Salida).

These stations reach out across 24FM frequencies in the state – bringing Colorado music to their  listeners 52 hours a week.  I hope you’ll support them with your financial contribution.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

The environment is on everyone’s mind.  “Nature’s Way” was originally written, recorded and released by the band Spirit in 1969. Songwriter Randy California recorded several versions of the song over the years, quipping that he never quite got it right.  Now, it’s Firefall’s turn.  Bassist Mark Andes an original member of Spirit, sings lead and is joined by  featured guests Timothy B. Schmit of the Eagles and John McFee of the Doobie Brothers.

I expect a new album from Firefall in the coming months.


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

Well, YouTube wins again.  I can always find songs there I can’t find on Spotify.  Either way, enjoy this week’s playlist.

CP S12 EP42 2018

 Monday Nov 5, 2018 – It’s pretty rare that jazz gets featured in the MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting) – but this week there are two cuts – one from Jason Klobnak and one from Keith Oxman, who shockingly in this era has no social media or web presence but whose new album is on Spotify.

There were a few cuts not available for this week’s Spotify playlist – so this one runs 1 hour 19 mins.  Enjoy

COMING SOON!  New Brent Loveday & the Dirty Dollars will show up in EP44 of the show.  If you don’t know who Brent Loveday is – look up Reno Divorce.  The new album took several years for Brent to put together, and is one that dives into his alt-country-rock  voice.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Betsy Mortenson and Harrison Goodale, the principles behind Sustain Music & Nature, an amazing organization that recently invited the Burroughs to participate in in Songscapes.  Here’s our chat:

Anyone doubting that the Album of the Year is for 2018?  Oh, and have you heard of Nathaniel’s new candy bar?

“A Little Honey” Handcrafted Chocolate with Honey, Blood Orange, and Marigold

“Inspired by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats’ “A Little Honey”, this limited edition craft chocolate is a fundraising collaboration between The Marigold Project, Small Batch America, and Fruition Chocolate Works.

Happy 2nd birthday to the Music District in Fort Collins, one of the fantastic supporters of the show.

Congratulations to the Burroughs for the incredible opportunity to be a part of Songscape. a very cool project done in association with the non-profit organization Sustain Music & Nature.

The Burroughs are the first non-acoustic folk band to participate from around the country. The band was asked to create a song inspired by their experience following a week-long retreat in Roosevelt National Forest. And… if you’ve ever seen the Burroughs live you know Johnny loves to dance 😉

Proceeds from song sales help support Sustain, the band, and public lands.”

The Burroughs announced they have a new video coming out on September 29, called “Step Into the Music.”  It was done in partnership and collaboration with the Colorado based non-profit organization Sustain Music & Nature.  Here’s the video explaining who they are and what they do.  Look for the video for “Step Into the Music” to appear here (hopefully) next week.  I’ll debut the song in EP37 (SPT 22-28) of the show

The Fort Collins’ sisters SHEL sent out a a VERY EXCITING announcement.  They will be the closing night act for the 2018 Women Sports Film Festival in San Francisco at the end of the month.  Check out the accolades in this promo video!

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Andy Palmer has been one of the brightest highlights of the music scene in our region the past several years, going back to the breakout single “Grrrr,” from his debut “Sometime Around,” that dropped Sept 21 2011 – seven years ago.

Recently, Andy announced an indefinite hiatus from music activities to refocus on other endeavors and his family.  His exit from the scene is amplified by some of the starkest lyrics and imagery in his accomplished and highly praised body of work, in the video for “The Switch,” the title track from his most recent album that came out in May 2017.

As usual in Andy’s music, he leaves us with a hopeful feeling, despite being weighted down by existential burdens in life.  Let’s hope we get to hear more from Andy in the future.  Good luck and good living my friend.

CP S12 EP34 2018

MONDAY SEPT 10, 2018 –Happy Monday.  As seems to be somewhat normal over the years, we’re in a bit of a lull for new releases right now.  And it’s a great time for a vacation.  So I’m taking one.  I don’t see it as likely that I’ll publish a post next Monday the 17th since I’ll be on the road somewhere between Denver and Zion in Utah.

The biggest news of the week broke on FB over the weekend when Andy Palmer announced an  “indefinite hiatus” from making music to focus on things closer to home – and heart – family and his children.   In the meantime, he’s set to release his newest video, produced by  John Grigsby, for “The Switch” – the lead single from his last album.  The video has already garnered an official invitation to the 2018  Westfield International Film Festival.  Watch for the video here in a couple of weeks.

In his post Andy let us know that “All that is to say that this fool is dialing down gigging in place of opening up to other pursuits. Seems fitting that I’ll wrap up this run on October 20, my wedding day 11 short years ago, at The Walnut Room, a Denver venue I’ve loved since day one and which has always warmly welcomed me in.”

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Many folks today don’t know, or don’t remember, that acclaimed FOLK (yes, I said folk) artist Jill Sobule is originally from Denver, and that her mom still lives and works here.  I’m pretty stoked to have new music from Jill I’m sharing this week – from a video she released in June off her upcoming new album Nostalgia Kills.  The new single however is not “folky” at all, but leans with a snap-crackle-pop of the sort we would have expected following her 1995 self-titled sophomore release that produced her biggest hit, I Kissed A Girl.
