CP S15:EP35 2021

MONDAY Aug 30 2021 – I put the mask back on. It’s a reminder that COVID is not over with us. #COMUSIC – support.

It shouldn’t come as any surprise by now that Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats would debut at #1 with a new single, Survivor, in its first week out in advance of the the November release of their new album “The Future.” It also debuts at #5 in the August monthly TOP 30 due out in a couple of days. Don’t expect to see that album fall out of the top spot running into 2022.

CP S15:EP33 2021

MONDAY Aug 16 2021 – This past weekend I had the honor and privilege to be one of the hosts of Bohemian Light Livestream along with my friend and colleague Margot Chobanian from 105.5 The Colorado Sound. Unfortunately, due to time and space constraints only thirteen of the originally scheduled forty-nine acts were included in the showcase.

Emerging folk acts Companion, fronted by twin sisters Joanna (Jo) and Sophia Babb, as well as Miranda Fling stood out among the newcomers, while KILTRO and Del Shamen (featuring members of the Subdudes, Firefall and E-Town) provided two of the exceptional full band performances of the weekend.

AEG PRESENTS has announced that as of OCT 1, all of their venues will require us to show proof of vaccination to attend shows. Those venues include the Mission Ballroom and Fiddler’s Green along with the smaller venues they manage in the region. Information at AEGPresents.com/health-policy.

Also over the weekend, Rolling Stone posted that “Live Nation will require all artists, crew and attendees show proof of full vaccination or a negative test at their venues and upcoming festivals starting October 4th.”

Veteran Denver talent buyer, sound engineer, musician and record label producer/owner Randall Frazier who has worked at Ophelia’s and the Walnut Room is now the new senior talent buyer and production manager for the Levitt Pavilion.

CP S15 EP20 2021

Monday May 17, 2021 – You know how you take a few days off, but it takes twice as many days to actually catch up? Yep … Last week’s visits included KLZR Westcliffe and KHEN Salida. The week prior included a run out to Durango and a visit with KRZA Alamosa.

As I’ve made my way around the state the past month, the conversations I had mostly were about Colorado music and how to build audience. Locally produced non-comms are committed to presenting music from our state. If you’re a Colorado based band or musician reach out to them and find the venues and events in our smaller cities and towns that crave live music. There is plenty of opportunity in our state.

To find out how you can get your music into the hands of independent programmers around the state, email rockymountainmusicnetwork@gmail.com.

Middle Class Rock Star is a podcast hosted by  Andy Sydow.  Every week or so I feature a 7 to 8 minute segment featuring  a conversation Andy has with some of our scene’s top music makers and industry personalities.  This week’s guest is John Macy.

LIVE MUSIC IN SOUTH WESTERN COLORADO!

CP S15 EP13 2021

Monday March 29, 2021 – It’s been estimated that there are over fourteen thousand songwriters in Colorado who are registered with one of the top three performance rights organizations (ASCAP, BMI, SESAC). That is all to say there is a LOT of music in our state.

Over the past 30 days I tracked radio airplay for over two hundred individual titles, singles, EP or LP. I will be publishing the March TOP 30 in a few days. Of the over two hundred titles I tracked airplay for, ninety received at least one play at one of the thirteen stations I monitor weekly.

Not much movement in the weekly TOP 5 with Nathaniel Rateliff and A.J. Fullerton looking more and more like the TOP 2 albums leading into the spring. In the meantime, A.J. Fullerton is sitting at #1 in Colorado album titles this week at RootsMusicReport.com.

Featured station of the week = Four Corners Radio, KSJD (Cortez)
