NEWS, NOTES AND MUSIC

I think I got lost this past week.  Really.  I did get a lot of new music in my inbox – including new releases from Patrick Dune, Tennis, Katie Herzig, Pandas & People, and more … much love to Shilo Gold, whose music I recall playing a few years ago before she moved to Los Angeles, and who recently completed a self-funded tour of Europe.  Her live performance video from the Voice is below.

POLLS – thanks for participating.  I’m trying to get a sense of who we are here — and I can say we’re largely over 45, and like going out to see live music.  Here’s the next on.  I want to know your buying habits.


 IN COLORADO MUSIC HISTORY 

Many famous (and not so famous) acts have come to Colorado over the decades to get away from the hustle and bustle of LA or NYC.  Among those are acts like the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and the Eagles, which is undoubtedly the most famous of all such acts.

 VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Chris Daniels and the Kings just released their 15th album, Blues with Horns Vol. 1, which once again features Freddi “Love” Gowdy (Freddi Henchi Band).

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP38

ROCKY MOUNTAIN MUSIC RELIEF mobilizes the Colorado music and media communities to raise funds to assist musicians throughout the U.S. affected by natural disasters.



A RARE REVIEW

A disclaimer:  One of the many things I do is service Colorado records to Colorado media, and municipal agencies that put on seasonal (summer) concerts and festivals, and I also book a few here and there.

I’ve known Andy Sydow for several years now. He enlisted my help to get his debut EP out a few years ago.  Recently he advanced me his upcoming new album, Reasons for Departure, due out early in 2018 that I’ve spent many hours listening on my car stereo the past couple of weeks.

Andy has been among the region’s most respected up and coming young musicians; a multi-instrumentalist, who excels as much on slide guitar as his boogie-woogie blues piano chops.  He’s played in support of the likes of Tab Benoit, Delbert McClinton, Chris Duarte, Tinsley Ellis and others …and appeared at esteemed events and venues such as Jazz Aspen Snowmass.

Andy and I have spent many wonderful hours together discussing music – his as well as that of some of his favorite songwriters. Andy’s favorite artists are guys like Jackie Green and Anders Osborne, who he’s opening for on New Year’s Eve at the Caribou Room in Nederland (congrats Andy!)

Some of my favorite singer-songwriters from my generation are guys like Billy Joel, Jackson Browne, and Dan Fogelberg.  Add in elements of what I hear as Cat Stevens, and you begin to catch a bit of what I hear in Andy’s new album.

Reasons for Departure is absolutely beautifully produced by Chris Daniels, whose home studio is where a great deal of Andy’s album was recorded. Chris spent considerable time honing Andy’s vocal performances on this record – which along with the splendid songwriting is what really stands out.

Songs like Reasons for DepartureLonely LoveHearts Go On and Who I Want To Be showcase a songwriter, and singer, ready and able to share airtime with his – and my – favorites from across the generations.

I can’t share it with you yet, but I will say that when people do get it in their ears it will open up tremendous opportunities in Andy’s career and grow his fanbase considerably.

Much love my friend – I can’t wait to share this one with my listeners throughout Colorado.



 VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Sometimes it’s hard to define “Colorado” music .. is a band or artist who once lived here a part of what has defined our sound?  Is a band made up of members from around the country, but where at least one of them is from Colorado a “Colorado band?”  What if a record is made here?  Does that make it Colorado?  Hmmmm…. ponders goat.

Strawberry Fields came about in Denver in 2013, forged out of the pop-punk band Mega Gem.  In 2016, the band appeared at Red Rocks and the Underground Music Showcase in Denver.

Since forming S.R.  principle artist Emi Night has moved to the Eastern Seaboard.  The new EP was recorded in Evergreen, but mixed and mastered elsewhere, as so many Colorado records are.

I’m adding this one to the Colorado Playlist collection ….



I often wonder who’s paying attention – ya know?  I’m curious, how old are you?  How often do you go out to a show NOT at Red Rocks or the Pepsi Center?

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP35

ROCKY MOUNTAIN MUSIC RELIEF

ROCKY MOUNTAIN MUSIC RELIEF mobilizes the Colorado music and media communities to raise funds to assist musicians throughout the U.S. affected by natural disasters.

The new website is http://www.rockymountainmusicrelief.org.  You’ll find up to date events, a blog annotating where we’re at and what we’re doing, and an about section with brief bios on the founders – all of whom I am deeply indebted to.

This past weekend, we were directly involved in the planning and execution of two events – one at the Oriental Theater in Denver on Friday, and one on Sunday at Dazzle Jazz in Denver.  Both events were well attended.

We raised over $700 for the cause.  Additionally, other musicians / bands have stepped up to do their own charity events, and to date they’ve raised over $1500 .. all of which will eventually find it’s way via MusiCares to professional working musicians in need in the affected hurricane ravaged communities.


IN COLORADO MUSIC HISTORY 

CANNED HEAT – Before moving to Los Angeles with his family, Canned Heat lead singer Bob the Bear Hite was raised in Denver.  What happened on SATURDAY, OCT 21 1967 that lead to the song My Crime?

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

I’m not always out in front with new music .. and this new cut from OneRepublic actually came out this past June.  It is perhaps one of their most noteworthy songs – written w/ T-Bone Burnett for the movie “an inconvenient sequel – Truth to Power.”  There are not a lot of lyric videos I’d post – this one is an exception.  It speaks to our love of our planet – Earth.

It’s Monday morning.  We’ve got new music in the MMMM section from The Guestlist, Morning Bear, and Francis and the Wolf.

Coming up September 21-24 = the iammusicfest and Colorado Music Summit in Durango.  I have been given stage time during the festival and Summit to talk about efforts to help professional working musicians affected by the flooding in TX (and now FL).

CO MUSIC & MEDIA FOR HOUSTON

Two weeks ago a statewide fundraising initiative was launched called CO MUSIC & MEDIA for HOUSTON.  It’s painfully obvious this morning that Florida has now been added to our efforts to help professional working musicians there as well.

Our 1st EVENT is on Friday SPT 15at the Oriental Theater followed by one on Sunday SPT 17 at Dazzle Jazz in Denver.

I’m honored that my friends John MagnieSteve Amadee and Tim Cook (the subdudes) will be appearing as the 3 Twins…. along with two of Denver’s true legacy artists – Mollie O’Brien and Rich Moore …joined by Sofie Reed and others TBA at the Oriental Theater event ..

…Channel 7 News Anchor Shannon Ogden will be anchoring the Dazzle event joined by guests tba.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP31

Rusty Young

Rusty Young is a Colorado music native.  As not only an original member of Poco, but its enduring remaining original member, he is enshrined in the Colorado Music Hall of Fame along with fellow Colorado music native George Grantham, with whom Rusty was a member of the 60’s Front Range based psych-rock band Boenzee Cryque.

Rusty just released his first non-Poco named solo album, Waitin’ for the Sun .. that I spotlighted a track from in this blog  a couple of weeks ago.  I will say I’m far more impressed with this solo effort than I was with the last Poco album that Rusty fronted.  Produced by Rusty with fellow Poco member and songwriter Jack Sundrud, Rusty’s voice stays as strong and true as you’d hope for someone in their 70s now, with well over 50 years of singing experience.

Rusty doesn’t leave the sound of Poco too far behind on this solo effort – songs like “Heaven Tonight” could have easily been a marquee track for Poco circa 1980s.  “Honey Bee” lies a little closer to something I might have expected from say Levon Helm stylistically – a bit more “dirt” than the polished SoCal country-rock that Poco is most well known for.

Waitin’ for the Sun won’t win Rusty any new millennial fans .. but rather, with his tired aching “rusty” voice it’s those of us old enough to remember him as a “kid” who will appreciate what’s left of this unsung country-rock legend, and the life he speaks of in this record.

Gotta send some love to the Coteries and Hey, Lady! (the B-52s Tribute) for an exemplary job at the final Wellington Downtown Summer Concert Series this year.  Folk fans are going to love the Coteries as they develop their fanbase regionally – and Hey, Lady! is already one of the region’s TOP 5 tribute bands … much love and thanks for a great show.

COLORADO PLAYLIST – S11 EP29

It’s not Monday morning.  It’s actually Monday evening, as I’m just now getting caught up from a long weekend of music events.  Thanks to everyone who came out to the 10th Annual Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival and to the 11th Anniversary of the Colorado Playlist at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre, our primary sponsor of the show.

Despite the rain both days, we all had plenty of fun.  Even though Cracker got rained out, big hugs to Anita at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont for allowing us to bring Cracker over for a late night set.

I still have appearances this summer; so I do hope you’ll come out and catch some great live Colorado music.

  • Aug 11-13 = I’ll be on the Mountain Ave main stage at Bohemian Nights at New West Fest, that will feature Leftover Salmon on Friday night.  Coincidentally, Cracker, with whom Leftover Salmon recorded “Oh, Cracker, Where Art Thou” several years ago will be on the Library Park Stage at the same time.
  • Aug 19 = Wellington Downtown Concert Series w/Hey Lady the wonderful B52s tribute band.

Sept 9 = GOATZ! and Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene at Avogadro’s Number in Fort Collins

Sept 10 = GOATZ! at Oskar Blues Original Grill and Brew in Lyons 


Big news and rumors of big news have been making the rounds here recently.  First of all, it is true that Colorado native and original member of Poco, Rusty Young, who played in Boenzee Cryque in the 60s has a new solo record coming out.  For many years he’s fronted the name Poco – and I say fronted because the other original members, including Richie Furay have long distanced themselves.  At any rate, the album is due out September 18.

In the rumor column — is Paper Bird about to fly apart? Hmmmm… rumors have been swirling for a few weeks, and even Paper Bird member Paul DeHaven has stepped out with a new solo effort.  While I have not confirmed the rumor, my sources are indeed extremely reliable.  I included the new Paul DeHaven single in this week’s show.
