CP S13 EP07 2019

Monday Feb 11, 2019 – NEW EMAIL ADDRESS = coloradoplaylist@gmail.com

Happy Monday. Well, I was hoping that Colorado would  represent in the 61st Annual Grammy Awards yesterday.  Ron Miles and Tia Fuller were up in the jazz category, and the Wood Brothers were nominated in the Americana category.  None took home the trophy.  However, Denver native Matt Pike won a Grammy as part of the metal band High On Fire.  They won for best metal performance.  Congrats Matt!!

It’s been another week of more new releases rolling in than I can get to in any given week.  Someone asked me the other day, “why not?”  It’s pretty simple really: time.  I can get 12, maybe 13 songs into an hour. I allow three slots per hour for brand new (D), (N) or (P) releases along with one or two current and previously played tracks (C).  Add in a couple of recurrent (R) “hits” and a handful of older back catalog titles (G) from the past sixty years and you have an idea of how the show is constructed each week.

Factor in a catalog of over 5000 song titles going back to the late 50s.  So, really, only the “best” titles get in .. which leads me to the MMMM.  I got to new music this episode from Ryan Dart, Brothers Keeper Don Chicharron, Bonnie and The Clydes, Corsicana and Thom Chacon.

Still in the queue for upcoming shows, new releases from SUCH, the Mossgatherers, Lucy Daydream, Hunter James and the Dirty Dollars, Eminence Ensemble, Dearling and several others.

Please do vote each week to let me know which tracks you think I should keep for future airplay.

Whitewater Ramble may be becoming one of the most enigmatic “grass” bands in the state.  Never one to shy away from ingesting a diverse pallet of stylistic influences, Patrick Sites and company fully embrace a deep southern country-rock blues vibe with a potent socially conscious and politically astute message in their latest video.

CP S13 EP04 2019

Monday Jan 21, 2019 – one of the most incredible things about the Colorado music scene is the nearly bottomless depth of talent.  Every week I hear about new bands that have been playing for sometimes years, that I never heard about before.  I also come across new organizations and communities formed to encourage support and collaboration, across genres and styles.  Two this week.

Colorado Original Band Community – This forum / group page is for Colorado fans, band members and or folks interested in learning and contributing to The Colorado Original Band / Musician Scene with open transparency. There are many different entities who are members of this page. Club / venue owners, promoters, booking agents, management, industry reps local to national and most important, paying fans. This is also a place for beginners, intermediate and expert level musicians to ask questions of any level or to post interesting, funny or educational info. 

For the Love of Locals – For The Love Of Locals was started as a platform to fortify Colorado music. Founded and operated by Colorado musicians, their focus was always centered around showcasing Colorado talent, while giving fans, family and friends an easy and inexpensive way to support their favorite local artists.   Their best of Colorado 2018 Spotify playlist is worth a listen.

Every week I post up the MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting).  This is your chance to let me know what you think of the new songs I played on the show.  I do hope you’re enjoying this feature, and will continue to make your vote known, to KEEP or DELETE.

ALSO — don’t forget.  If you’d like to stream the show, it’s available weekly at www.coloradosound.org/

CP S13 EP02 2019

Monday Jan 07, 2019 – First Monday in the new year.  Got swamped with new music over the holidays.  One track that was not available for embed or playlisting on YouTube is the new cut from Reed Foehl, cowritten with Gregory Alan Isakov.

Reed was an established Colorado musician through the 90s and into the 21st century, before moving back to New England and then onto Nashville a few years ago.  For awhile he lived at Gregory Alan Isakov’s farm/recording studio outside of Boulder.  His long time Colorado fans can expect his new album, Lucky Enough, to hit on Feb 1.  Glide Magazine premiered the song “American Miles” in December.

One bit of news = KJAC 105.5 The Colorado Sound is now archiving the show.  So, if you miss hearing the show on the radio, you can now stream it weekly.  I’m told the show will go up on Mondays.

Monday Nov 26, 2018 – Did you eat too much?  Over the weekend since last Thursday I read we gain over 2lbs at this time of year. I’m still in recovery mode myself. Best way I know of mitigating that is to go out and experience all that Colorado has to offer at this time of year – including, but not exclusively, Colorado music.  There are some great shows coming up over the next few weeks.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

As I scoured the inter-webs this past few weeks I came across a review of a “new” player in the scene = Davey Daydream.  He’s not really new.  He moved here to study at CU Boulder from NJ in 2008.  Formerly a bass player and lead singer in bands that did everything from straight ahead pop-punk to experimental prog-rock and a coffee shop singer songwriter, he’s included DJing and producing with elements of EDM and Hip-hop into his repertoire.    A breakout show in Denver/Boulder/Fort Collins could set Davey up as an artist to watch for in 2019 and beyond.
