Colorado Playlist S10 EP46 DEC 2016

I did not add any new music this week.  December is pretty much review, vote, and then do the “best of” show at the end of the month.  So, no MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting)  By way of review I included YouTube or Soundcloud embeds for cuts up for this year’s best of list … and at the end the poll for you to vote on your favorites for the year.

AND THE NOMINEES ARE! and the TOP 25 Videos of 2016 – Vote for your favorite LP or EP of 2016.

Colorado Playlist S10 EP45 DEC 2016

I don’t often get a chance to go out for an entire day to see a batch of new up and coming bands – unless I’m working the event.  Sunday I spent the day at Hodi’s Half Note in Fort Collins to see friends, and to immerse myself in seven hours of music from 10 bands, only three of which I knew anything about.

The event was the annual Scene Magazine “Fresh Talent Showcase,” a judged event that awarded the winner time in a recording studio, along with a pro grade photo shoot, a pro level consulting session with Yellowbright, and a slot on the Scene Magazine stage at the 2017 Arise Festival in Loveland next August.

Write Minded took home the top prize, but all of the bands brought game … Congrats to everyone who participated.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK:

besides writing and performing original music both as the leader of the Patti Fiasco, and as part of the country-folk duo Whipporwill, Alysia Kraft is not above giving us her own personal interpretations of other songwriters’ songs.


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

I conceived of this idea as a way for you to discover some of the new music I played on the show, and to give you the chance to let me know which of the tracks you like, and think I should keep in rotation.  I get a lot of feedback from fans about what’s liked .. and what isn’t.

In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp (my favorite), Reverbnation or YouTube.

It’s not a competition.  It’s just a gauge of how well you like the songs I added this week.

Colorado Playlist S10 EP44 NOV 2016

Happy POST turkey hangover.  I hope you spent the long weekend enjoying some live local music – wish I could have made it to the Leftover Salmon shows in Denver <smh>.  Being IN the business, means you never really get to go out and ENJOY some of the shows I’d really like to attend LOL.  Such is life in my world.

Thanks to everyone for stepping up last week and crushing the stats! WOW …  By far the biggest stats winner was The Prairie Scholars, but overall every track was voted significantly as a KEEP IT … Blowing up the stats that way over the holiday week as fantastic!

Much love to everyone .. this week’s MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting) includes tracks from Whiskey Blanket (who I technically debuted here last week), Chimney Choir, the 5 and Dimer’s, and local blues-rocker Michael Hornbuckle.  VOTE AWAY …
