CP S13 EP24 2019

Monday June 17, 2019 – One of the most consistent issues I hear both musicians and patrons talk about are “empty rooms.”  As a former venue operator, and a life-long performing musician, I get it.  I play in rooms with only a handful of people present.  I’ve booked shows that only a handful of people have attended.  There is no one single answer that will solve this issue.

I’ve performed in support of world renown musicians to empty rooms …as in only ten people, and five of them were associated with the show.  This actually happened to me not long ago, where I played as the opener for an nationally recognized award winning singer-songwriter in front of ten people. I’ve also seen and performed in support of platinum selling bands that drew only a couple hundred people to the show.

Some venues are “concert” rooms – meaning the band is totally responsible for how many people attend – it’s essentially a popularity contest.  If you’re a new band, or an up and coming local band, chances are likely you won’t have many people in “your” audience, and you hope to draw from those who show up to see the headliner – which supposedly does have a local draw.

Some venues are established restaurant / bar / music rooms.  Some have a regular clientele. We all want to play those rooms. Some do not and therefore rely on the popularity of the band  -the band draw.  I’ve managed rooms like that, and performed at more than I can remember.  Sometimes there is a crowd to play to, and in some cases the draw is minimal or not there at all.

My father, who owned a jazz venue in the early 60s, also complained about this issue – both as the owner of a venue and as a professional working musician.  The issue is not new.  However, today the issue is exacerbated by there being many hundreds of places to play in our region, and several thousands of bands and solo acts wishing to perform publicly – both from our own region as well as those out touring.

SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC – It’s the lifeblood of our industry.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Every day I discover talent from here in Colorado.  Courtney Hartman is the latest.  Per her FB page: “Acoustic Guitar Magazine recognizes her as a “distinctive guitar stylist… and a songwriter that delights and disturbs.” Her early years were spent playing folk and bluegrass with her siblings at festivals around the country. After leaving Colorado for the Northeast, Courtney joined up with folk quintet, Della Mae, touring internationally for seven years, releasing three records and garnering a GRAMMY nomination.”  She’s now back in Colorado and I look forward to seeing her perform regionally.

Happy post FoCOMX 2019.  Congratulations to the entire organization for an 11th anniversary.  I’ve performed with my band for 4 years now, in four different rooms.  Before that I did sound for many years in various venues.  As the event has grown so has the complexity of putting it all together.

The staff and volunteers, the venues and production people  have created a seamless music experience for the entire region, regardless of age, regardless of genre, or if an act is original, a tribute or a cover band.  It really is a remarkable achievement and a testament to the love of live music in our state.

Congratulations to Cody Qualls from Face Vocal Band for his nomination for Male Vocalist of the Year for the 2019 A Cappella Music Awards!

Got pretty lucky this past week, being able to premier a new Drunken Hearts single, that will not be on their upcoming album due out this fall and is also NOT available online as of today to share.  I also debuted new tracks from Avifauna and Izcalli that are, as of today, not available online.  So, there are three new tracks to vote to either KEEP or DELETE in this week’s MMMM.

If you have no set plans for this weekend, I hope you’ll head into Fort Collins for the 11th annual FoCOMX – the Fort Collins Music Experiment.  This year there will be over 350 acts performing in more than 30 “venues.”  Expect anything and everything.  My band, GOATZ!, will be at Tap and Handle on Friday at 6:45PM.

Coming next week on the Colorado Playlist and available NOW on Spotify – a new single, Morning Train, from Grant Farm; the new video drops this Wednesday April 24 in Relix.  Disclosure = Grant Farm is a Rocky Mountain Music Network client band.

There’s not enough time or space in the show to play every new piece of music I receive.  #firstworldproblem I usually try to get 2 debuts in every hour, as well as a (N) new track from a previous debut.  But right now, we’re fat with new music emanating from the Centennial State.

I put in a couple extra new tracks this week, where usually I’d be able to play a cut or two from already played albums or singles I’d like to give more airtime to.  Because, really, repetition breeds familiarity, which is how hits are made. Let me know which of the new songs you think I should keep in the Playlist.

Many thanks and big love to Westword, SceneNoCO and Bandwagon Magazine for the articles about me and my debut.  And many many thanks to the folks at Bohemian for inviting my band GOATZ! to play at Magic Rat this past week, and at Washington’s FoCO opening for Blackhawk on May 12.

Sometimes you write a song and it takes years to mature to what it’s meant to be …sorta like a fine wine or whiskey.  “Hold On Me” is a song written by Taylor Sims, one half of the Taylor and Bonnie Sims duo that makes up the core of Bonnie & the Clydes.  Taylor originally wrote it for his old band, Springcreek Bluegrass.  In this more “country” arrangement, the couple dives straight into the story.

Monday April 8, 2019

When I started doing this show 13 years ago this weekend, I had already been booking bands and or consulting on Colorado talent for a handful of years.  It was because of those bands, bands such as Yo, Flaco!, Love.45, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, DeVotchKa and countless others, that I thought I was seeing something very special in our state.

When the Fray hit big with How to Save A Life in 2005, it wasn’t the first time a Colorado band hit big, but it was by far the biggest a Colorado band had ever hit.  By 2015, the single How to Save A Life, became the 4th best-selling song in digital music history.  OneRepublic came along and destroyed those records with Apologize in 2007 and Counting Stars in 2014, a song that is still by far the biggest hit in Colorado Music History.

I look forward to seeing that lies ahead for us as our scene continues to explode nationally, and internationally.  One thing to look forward to this is the BEST OF THE DECADE … I’ll start working on that here soon.  In the meantime, I hope you’ll check out this week’s MMMM and vote to either KEEP or DELETE the songs from the Colorado Playlist.

Monday March 25, 2019

WOW! It’s going to be pushing 75 degrees on Wednesday … ok, I got that out of my system.  I drive a convertible.  I need the sun (and copious amounts of SPF 100 sunscreen).

Besides producing and hosting the Colorado Playlist, I also front my own project called GOATZ! (appropo, yes?)  Honestly, I’ve struggled over the decision to air my own work on my show.  I don’t know if I will or won’t if for no other reason than there is so much tremendous music hitting the in-box; I keep pushing mine off to the back of the line.  That said, here’s my six song debut, Sweet Inspiration.

Earlier this season I posted that KFFR (Winter Park) will be adding the show to their programming.  Last week I appeared on Steve Skinner’s show to talk about my debut record.  He informed me while on the air that they will be adding the Colorado Playlist, hopefully in April .. or as soon as they move into their new studios.

The Colorado Playlist is funded partly by the sponsors on this page along with whatever tips I get from you via the funding and sponsorship page.  Other funding comes from whatever money I can personally contribute – so if you’re inclined, and you like the debut, I’d be grateful if you’d download for whatever amount you’d like.  And thank you.

Over the past several years a handful of hip-hop bands from the region have risen to my attention.  Animated Earth rises to my attention on the strength of several members from bands such as Michal Menert, The Pretty Fantastics, Sassfactory, Grim & Darling, Whiskey Blanket, Glitta Kings and Equally Challenged to name a handful, including such notables as Jordan Polovina (MPC, vocals and cello) and Jessa Raskin (vocals, guitar and slide) who last teamed up in Grim & Darling.
