CP S13 EP03 2019

Monday Jan 14, 2019 – As I sat down this morning to put the finishing touches on this blogpost, I came across a Facebook post from G. Brown’s Colorado Music Experience.

“On this date in 1975, Joe Walsh earned a gold record for his third solo studio album, “So What.” Standout tracks included a remake of the Barnstorm track “Turn to Stone” and the haunting “Song For Emma,” written for Walsh’s daughter who had been killed in a car accident the previous year in Colorado. https://colomusic.org/profile/joe-walsh-barnstorm/

G. Brown is one of Colorado music’s living legacies.  His book outlining music history, and his newest endeavor – Colorado Music Experience – serve as prime research tools for my show.

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.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

WhiteWater Ramble founder Patrick Sites has always found a way to continue the band’s rocky-grass groove with strong voices up front – whether former lead singer Patrick Latella or current lead vocalist/guitarist, Damon Wood.  Damon’s background includes several years as the guitarist in soul/funk legend James Brown’s band.  Here, Damon brings a true Colorado country rock voice to a summer time “drinking song” jam.


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

Don’t forget to let me know if there’s something I should be playing on the show.  I scour Spotify, YouTube, Soundcloud and Bandcamp to find you the freshest new music from around the state – hope you’ll help out by voting to KEEP or DELETE the new music shares in the MMMM each week.

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 Dec 17, 2018 – Just a reminder to VOTE for your favorites of 2018 in the fan/listener poll.  There’s been a bit of a change in the running – with Sarah Snead Hornbuckle‘s fans rallying to make the pop-country ballad “All I’ve Got” the front-runner fan favorite video as we enter the final week of the polling.  The sweaty Greeley soul band the Burroughs is still slightly in front of Denver’s roots-blues-rockers Silver and Smoke for Fan Favorite LP/EP of 2018.

CP S12 EP46 2018

Monday Dec 3, 2018 –There is NO MMMM this week. The couple of debuts I played had no embeds, being so new.  Instead, I direct your attention to the  BEST OF 2018 POLLS.   

That said, both the String Cheese Incident and the Motet put new singles out to radio.  The Motet’s Lyle Divinsky is the featured vocalist on the String Cheese Incident track. Taylor Scott shared a new single from his upcoming album, and the Symbols have a new album I recently reviewed.

One of the tremendous musical activities I was re-introduced to this year is the musical theater.  My girlfriend got us season tickets to the Bug Theatre in Denver. We also attended a couple of plays at the Curious Theatre, that were not musicals.

I hadn’t been to much in the way of theater over the past 40 years. I grew up in the theater and had legit aspirations as a high school senior.  I went into radio instead. #nocomplaints

My main take-a-way is there are some tremendously talented and skilled people acting on those stages, and some for whom it’s a genuine hobby.  Local theatre is much like the local live music scene.  It’s also another avenue for exploring music that many of us ignore.

I highly encourage a night at the theatre. Not every show will be great, but you’ll truly have an enjoyable time at every show.

NOW PLEASE GO PICK YOUR FAVORITES OF 2018.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

I was enamored by this prog-rock band earlier this year.  They released this video mid-November, but their EP is up for vote in the CP BEST OF 2018.  Digital Myle once again producing some of the best videos in the market.  Echoes in Reverie started as a side project for local music veterans Rachel Irvin, Bryan Stacks, and Luke Mott. What started as a weekly jam session, quickly became a musical ritual.

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.

CP S12 EP44 2018

 Monday Nov 19, 2018 – This is my pre-Thanksgiving post.  As my girlfriend and I sat and watched news coverage of the California fires this past week, I couldn’t help but think about our own state and just how easily it would be for that to happen to us here.  Natural disasters destroy everything.

One of the reasons we launched Rocky Mountain Music Relief a year ago was so that when natural disasters affect the musicians in our own region we’d have a way to help out.   While our mission statement declares that we exist to help out musicians in the Rocky Mountain region (Colorado mostly) – I hope we can all contribute to helping those in need in California.

I’ll have big news coming in Q1 2019, but let me tease you a bit.  Next year when I thank stations for airing this program there will very likely be one more.  KFFR (Winter Park) has acknowledged they love the show and want to air it.  They’re hoping for early 2019.  Keep your fingers crossed.  No deal is a done deal until the show is added and aired.

Thank you to KRFC (Fort Collins), KJAC (Greeley/Front Range), KDNK (Carbondale), KOTO (Telluride), KSUT (Ignacio/Durango), KLZR (Westcliffe), KCMJ (Colorado Springs), KAFM (Grand Junction), KOYC (Pueblo), KZYR (Vail) and KHEN (Salida).

These stations reach out across 24FM frequencies in the state – bringing Colorado music to their  listeners 52 hours a week.  I hope you’ll support them with your financial contribution.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

The environment is on everyone’s mind.  “Nature’s Way” was originally written, recorded and released by the band Spirit in 1969. Songwriter Randy California recorded several versions of the song over the years, quipping that he never quite got it right.  Now, it’s Firefall’s turn.  Bassist Mark Andes an original member of Spirit, sings lead and is joined by  featured guests Timothy B. Schmit of the Eagles and John McFee of the Doobie Brothers.

I expect a new album from Firefall in the coming months.


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

Well, YouTube wins again.  I can always find songs there I can’t find on Spotify.  Either way, enjoy this week’s playlist.
