MONDAY NOV 11, 2019 It’s Veterans’s Day – a day designed to honor those who served in the US Armed Forces.  Thank you for your incredible service.  #VietnamEraVeteran #USAF 

Yesterday, I posted Single Releases of 2019 and CP Album / EP Releases 2019It’s a great chance for you to review some of the singles, EPs and full length albums that were released this past year.  I also updated the Colorado Playlist on Spotify. 

Thanks to JamBase.com for debuting the new single from Leftover Salmon. “… entitled “Songs You’ve Left Unsung” as a tribute to the late Jeff Austin. “Songs You’ve Left Unsung” is available exclusively via Backline’s website and all proceeds for the “pay what you wish” download benefit Backline.Care, a hub for music industry professionals and their families to access mental health and wellness resources.”

As a lifelong musician, and music industry professional, I’ve seen more than my share of mental health issues.  Many (if not most) musicians carry little to no healthcare insurance, and often what they do have won’t cover mental health issues.  Having access to resources like Backline.Care is invaluable.  Losing a Colorado musician and friend to mental illness hits home in a very direct way.

Monday June 10, 2019

According to the Denver Post, in an article dated SEPTEMBER 14, 2018, “Denver’s music industry is growing faster than its energy, aerospace and biotech industries.”  The story was apparently culled from an academic report, “A Quantitative Analysis of Colorado’s Music Industry” (May 2018) authored by Michael Seman, PhD, Director of Creative Industries Research and Policy, University of Colorado Denver College of Arts & Media.

The essence of the article is that “Statewide, the music industry is responsible for more than 16,000 jobs and just over $1.4 billion in revenue. The most robust components in terms of employment and revenue are “Musicians, Managers, and Agents” and “Live Events” pointing to Colorado’s strength in creating music and showcasing it live.”

Thank you for supporting music FROM Colorado, IN Colorado – on stages and on the air.

Best of 2018 – So Far

This subject has been on my mind for like a month now.  There have been some really excellent albums, EPs and singles put out since December 1 2017.  Here are the top  album picks of the year so far, based on regional non-comm / public radio airplay and my own thoughts on the subject.

Anyone looking for rock or pop will be disappointed – roots, blues, old school rhythm and blues and Americana (alt-country) are the name of the game this year around the state.

I embedded song files.  Go to their youtube channels or other streaming service to checkout full albums.  Better yet – support the band with a purchase.

much love,
goat


Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats Tearing at the Seams — no doubt that this album will finish the year at #1 with a strong national showing, and ubiquitous CO airplay.

Leftover SalmonSomething Higher! — scan the non-comm/public radio dial statewide and this album, while not even nearly as popular as Tearing at the Seams, is crazy popular – as it should be since it’s one of the best the band has turned in over the past 25 years.

Wood BrosOne Drop of Truth —many people don’t realize that Chris and Oliver Wood are Boulder natives, and still claim it as home – even when they’re performing elsewhere.  Another HIGHLY played Colorado album around the state.

Reverend FreakchildDial It In! — the “reverend” is a traveler.  He was born in Hawaii and has been in bands in Boston, including an early version of Soul Coughing with Mike Doughty.  Today he’s living in Boulder and attending Naropa University.  For all my blues fans, this one is at the top of the pile. #highlyrecommended

Gasoline LollipopsSoul Mine — Clay Rose is known for being pensive and deliberate – living at the edge of damnation and redemption.  The band is enjoying a banner year in terms of bookings and regional radio airplay.

 

CP S11 EP07 2018

Happy Monday Morning.  That video is the trailer for a documentary that was featured as part of the Boulder International Film Festival this weekend.  I managed to make the sold out showing on Sunday at the Longmont museum.

When the Magic Music album came out about two years ago now, it was not what many of us expected, or had hoped for – and the tell is in the movie itself.  A disclaimer is in order here: I was part of the promotion team for the Magic Music album.  The documentary really tells the story of the band and allows us to see what they could have (have?) become since they broke up in 1976.

Magic Music is an ingrained part of both the Boulder music scene of the 70s and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.  They were, in fact, the first “jamband” in Colorado music history.  After successful reunion appearances at the Boulder Theater and the release of the documentary, Chris Daniels, aka “Spoons,” announced they are working on booking some shows in and around the area for this season.https://i0.wp.com/magicmusicband.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Front-Slider-Magic-Music-Oxford-Hotel-1973-blk-960x360.jpg

CO Playlist – S12 EP04 2018

It’s that time of the year when goat gets chewin like crazy.  I’m involved in two “Battle of the Bands” competitions entering the thick of the new year.  Last week I was a judge at the 1st of four events being put on by Bandwagon Magazine.  The finals are in March sometime.

Beginning Feb 14, Bolder Boulder’s annual Battle of the Bands begins at the new Oskar Blues tasting room in Boulder.  The winner gets to play the “main stage” at this year’s 40th Annual Bolder Boulder event and be included on the compilation.

COMING SOON the new release from Leftover Salmon.  I got to hand with the fellas Friday night at the Aggie in Fort Collins .. and they fired off a message to their manager to get me the first single from the album, “Show Me Something Higher,” in time for this coming episode of the show.  I’ll also have some fresh cuts from Rare Silk‘s catalog as well as new music from Instant Empire.

CO Playlist – S12 EP02 2018

Sunday – a snowed in day – NFL playoffs – some hot green tea – and plenty of new Colorado music to get to.

Tragedy once again struck as I lost an entire backup hard drive last week, with no way to recover the data.  The upside is that I had to begin the process of rebuilding a library of music that spans six decades.  This week’s show is filled with “classic cuts” I hadn’t played in a few years now.

On the new music front, new emerging acts Wounded Bird and the Plutinos are featured in this week’s MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting).

Wounded Bird is a new project out of Boulder that features former Whiskey Bottles front-person Molly Orlando along with former college pal Scott Warren. Scott relocated to Evergreen from Los Angeles in 2016 where he composed for film & tv projects, most notably the Miramax opening logo music and the score for the Harry Connick Jr. and Willie Nelson film, “Angels Sing.”

Plutinos is a new solo project by Nate Barnes, known locally as one of the original founding members and drummer for hard rock band Rose Hill Drive.  Nate is also well known as a session and professional touring drummer for the likes of Americana maven Mary Chapin Carpenter as well as Ryan Bingham.

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).
