Monday Jan 16, 2023 – I don’t think a week goes by that I’m not absolutely amazed by the music in our state.
This week’s featured debuts include jazz from the BTTRFLY Quinet, made up of members from Lettuce and Big Gigantic; and electro-pop from Sugar Nova, a duo that features Luke Miller from the band Lotus. Roger Green was formerly a guitarist with the Czars. Daniel Rodriguez is a founding member of Elephant Revival. Gabriel Mervine is a longtime member of the Motet. Make sure to let us know what you think – “I like it,” “MEH, it’s ok,” “I don’t like it.”
If you’re a musician, or in the business of music, or you’re just interested, I will be making a couple of appearances, talking about …radio. Jan 29, I’ll be at the Upstream Songwriting Retreat in Lyons. Feb 1, I will be talking about radio at the Auditorium Music Business Conference in Denver.
