CP S13 EP27 2019

Monday July 15, 2019 – Rumors started to circulate recently on Facebook (yeah, I know – right?) that Colorado Music Hall of Fame band Sugarloaf had dropped tracks for a new album.  Of course original members Jerry Corbetta (lead singer), Bob Yeazel (guitarist) and Bob Raymond (bassist) have all passed away, so the news of some kind of Sugarloaf “reunion” came as a real surprise.  Turns out the story has a little truth to it .. .from a family of the band perspective.

According to Bob Raymond‘s son Aaron, “We did go into studio with my son (Bailey Raymond aka Kick Stevens) and re-recorded Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You and Texas Two Lane. Clark Hagan (local Denver producer) did the producing.  He also did a recording of Green-Eyed Lady with (original members) Bob Webber (guitar), Bobby Pickett (bass), Myron Pollack (drums) and another guy from Nashville. Sorry I don’t remember his name. Hope to have the two new songs released this winter. We are still working on the vocals.”

Stay tuned …

I reported last week on the wonderful compilation from Longmont’s Wind Over the Earth recording studio’s “Longmont Project” to benefit Longmont High School’s music program.  The new track below from Bridget Law is from that project.

This week, the Boulder Daily Camera has a story on Future Arts Foundation (FAF) and their series called Strings & Stories taking place in Longmont. Future Arts Foundation is “a nonprofit that supplies musical instruments and art materials to public schools and after-school programs.”  Strings & Stories is a concert series put together by FAF and 105.5 The Colorado Sound.

MONDAY JUNE 24, 2019 – Rumors swirled over the weekend concerning former Yonder Mountain String Band founding member Jeff Austin.  Despite numerous social media posts alluding to a possible suicide, official reports emerged that he suffered a undisclosed medical emergency and was is Seattle with family being attended to.  What little information is available, and crowdfunding has been set up at Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.

In this week’s show I highlighted some of the best of 2013 in  HOUR 1 and some of the best of 2014 in HOUR 2.  Over the next many weeks I will continue to highlight some of the best of each year as we approach the BEST OF THE DECADE.  With that, I’ve put up two polls already for Best of 2010 and 2011, so you can vote for your favorites from those years.

MMMM this week = Gun Street Ghost, Heavy Diamond Ring, Bobby Messano, Swerve, The Threadbarons, and Brian Bourgault – KEEP or DELETE?

CP S13 EP24 2019

Monday June 17, 2019 – One of the most consistent issues I hear both musicians and patrons talk about are “empty rooms.”  As a former venue operator, and a life-long performing musician, I get it.  I play in rooms with only a handful of people present.  I’ve booked shows that only a handful of people have attended.  There is no one single answer that will solve this issue.

I’ve performed in support of world renown musicians to empty rooms …as in only ten people, and five of them were associated with the show.  This actually happened to me not long ago, where I played as the opener for an nationally recognized award winning singer-songwriter in front of ten people. I’ve also seen and performed in support of platinum selling bands that drew only a couple hundred people to the show.

Some venues are “concert” rooms – meaning the band is totally responsible for how many people attend – it’s essentially a popularity contest.  If you’re a new band, or an up and coming local band, chances are likely you won’t have many people in “your” audience, and you hope to draw from those who show up to see the headliner – which supposedly does have a local draw.

Some venues are established restaurant / bar / music rooms.  Some have a regular clientele. We all want to play those rooms. Some do not and therefore rely on the popularity of the band  -the band draw.  I’ve managed rooms like that, and performed at more than I can remember.  Sometimes there is a crowd to play to, and in some cases the draw is minimal or not there at all.

My father, who owned a jazz venue in the early 60s, also complained about this issue – both as the owner of a venue and as a professional working musician.  The issue is not new.  However, today the issue is exacerbated by there being many hundreds of places to play in our region, and several thousands of bands and solo acts wishing to perform publicly – both from our own region as well as those out touring.

SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC – It’s the lifeblood of our industry.

It doesn’t happen often – but it sure did this week as I was able to rip open five new tracks that are currently not available online – not on YouTube, Bandcamp, SoundCloud or Reverbnation, the sites I use to share new tracks for the MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting).  Artists are sending me stuff LONG before they can get them online, or in the case of Clandestine Amigo, to not put them out online for public consumption at all.

Songs from Clandestine Amigo, Dust Heart, Kyle Emerson, Coal Town Reunion, and Andy Eppler were only made available this week for radio airplay on the Colorado Playlist.  They are NOT available, at this time, online.

Coming in the next episode, new music from Alan & Martin, Courtney Hartman, Jackson Emmer, Grayson Erhard, Stillhouse Junkies and Tyto Alba.


The Colorado Playlist is supported by The Mishawaka Amphitheatre, Oskar Blues Brewery, and the Bohemian Foundation. Additional support comes from the fans – you!  Please consider supporting the show by making a contribution.

I’ve been a fan of the Samples since they emerged in the late 80s, here in Colorado.  Formed, and not fully fronted, by Sean Kelly, the Samples have put out over 20 albums since their debut in 1989.  They’ve got a new album coming out soon called “Indian Summer.”  This is the first single from the album.

Every day I discover talent from here in Colorado.  Courtney Hartman is the latest.  Per her FB page: “Acoustic Guitar Magazine recognizes her as a “distinctive guitar stylist… and a songwriter that delights and disturbs.” Her early years were spent playing folk and bluegrass with her siblings at festivals around the country. After leaving Colorado for the Northeast, Courtney joined up with folk quintet, Della Mae, touring internationally for seven years, releasing three records and garnering a GRAMMY nomination.”  She’s now back in Colorado and I look forward to seeing her perform regionally.

Got pretty lucky this past week, being able to premier a new Drunken Hearts single, that will not be on their upcoming album due out this fall and is also NOT available online as of today to share.  I also debuted new tracks from Avifauna and Izcalli that are, as of today, not available online.  So, there are three new tracks to vote to either KEEP or DELETE in this week’s MMMM.

CP S13 EP15 2019

Monday April 8, 2019

When I started doing this show 13 years ago this weekend, I had already been booking bands and or consulting on Colorado talent for a handful of years.  It was because of those bands, bands such as Yo, Flaco!, Love.45, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, DeVotchKa and countless others, that I thought I was seeing something very special in our state.

When the Fray hit big with How to Save A Life in 2005, it wasn’t the first time a Colorado band hit big, but it was by far the biggest a Colorado band had ever hit.  By 2015, the single How to Save A Life, became the 4th best-selling song in digital music history.  OneRepublic came along and destroyed those records with Apologize in 2007 and Counting Stars in 2014, a song that is still by far the biggest hit in Colorado Music History.

I look forward to seeing that lies ahead for us as our scene continues to explode nationally, and internationally.  One thing to look forward to this is the BEST OF THE DECADE … I’ll start working on that here soon.  In the meantime, I hope you’ll check out this week’s MMMM and vote to either KEEP or DELETE the songs from the Colorado Playlist.
