Colorado Playlist – S11 EP47

AND THE NOMINEES ARE

WEEK 2
COMES DOWN DEC 20

Last year when I put this list out I had 80 titles up for consideration.  This year there are 120.  That’s a 50% increase in the number of titles that made it onto the list of nominations, and over a 50% increase in the number of titles submitted for consideration, which I lost track of.

If you’re unfamiliar with the titles on the list I do encourage you to do a little digging and discover something new.

VIDEO PICKS OF 2017 

I went through all of the videos that I collected from this past year and put together what I consider my top 26 (yeah, I know) picks of the year.  The rest is up to you to decide.  We’ll narrow it all down in our year end Best Of edition.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP45

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.

NEWS NOTES & THOUGHTS

Tuesday DEC 5 is Colorado Gives Day … there are some very worthy charities here in the state including many that are music focused.

No doubt that this week’s big news is the impending release of the first new album in eight years from the Railbenders.  If you heard the show, you got to hear the statewide debut of the first single, “Hard Road.”  The digital release date is set for Dec 19.

If you didn’t tune into the show, bummer .. the new Christmas single from Face Vocal Band is also not available to be embedded – and it’s a truly excellent re-imagining of Led Zepplin‘s “Misty Mountain Hop”  from their new album Bring On Christmas.

Names of advance donor’s are automatically sent to the promoter of this event, Vera Ptak. Please bring identification for admittance. Questions? Call Vera: 303-241-0814


VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Bands do not often rise to popularity or acclaim without some level of tribulation.  Beginning with the departure of the band’s guitarist in 2015 and the death of drummer Luke Mehrens’ fiance the same year, the trio has been pretty much hell bent on succeeding on their own terms.  The SIR Band’s new album, “So Cold,” comes out Dec 8th.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP43

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.

NEWS NOTES & THOUGHTS

Often when we talk about music in our area we’re talking about bands that do “original” music.  This weekend my girlfriend and I went to the theater – as in Denver’s Bug Theater – to see Disaster, a spoof on 70’s disaster flicks like Poseidon Adventure.  I grew up in little theater, and despite not having gone to see a play in nearly 20 years I fell in love all over again.

Our music AND radio communities in Colorado suffered a loss over the weekend.  Bill Barwick was one of the several superb instructors at the Ron Baile School of Broadcast in Denver in the late 70s.  He was also one of the top cowboy musicians in our scene and a regular at the Buckhorn Saloon, and “the Voice of the Western Channel.”  Bill passed away while attending the Western Music Association convention in Albuquerque, NM on November 10.  RIP old friend.  And thank you for helping me realize my dream of a career in broadcasting, and music.



VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

To say I’m in love with the new Big Head Todd & the Monsters album New World Arisin’ is just a shade of an understatement.  After following and playing their music on the air since about 1988 I have to say it’s their best yet – and certainly their most rockin.

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 EP37

So much going on.  I took some much needed vacation time last week, and visited Durango/Mesa Verde with my girlfriend.  While there we attended the 3rd annual iammusicfest which also hosted the Colorado Music Summit put on by the Music District and Colorado Creative Industries.

Much love to the incredible musicians who took part, including Foxfeather, Chimney Choir, Euforquestra, Hello Dollface, Paa Kow and others.

“…musicians work several jobs to make ends meet. If we can help them increase their quality of life, that’s a good thing for everybody.”— Margaret Hunt, CCI

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.

That statement from Margaret at Colorado Creative Industries carries considerable meaning for me, and is very much a part of the underlying mission of Rocky Mountain Music Relief.

Since launching, following the hurricane that affected Houston, and from which our mission originated, many legacy Colorado musicians and venues have contributed to the cause, with much more to come.

If you’d like to contribute to helping professional working musicians affected by natural disasters in the US, US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico please reach out via the website.
