COLORADO MUSIC PARTY ANNOUNCES INITIAL LINEUP

COLORADO MUSIC PARTY ANNOUNCES INITIAL LINEUP 

Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds, The Yawpers, SPELLS
and Residual Kid among performers

FORT COLLINS, Colo., February 24, 2015 — More than 120 bands will represent Colorado at the Colorado Music Party in Austin next month, this time with five consecutive days and nights of live performances on Sixth Street.

Organizers announced the initial lineup for the multi-day event today, with Colorado-based bands such as The Yawpers and SPELLS taking the stage alongside bands with Colorado industry connections – such as Austin’s Residual Kid and New York City’s Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds.

From Tuesday, March 17Saturday, March 21, the Colorado Music Party will take place at The 512 on Sixth St. and be presented by Colorado Creative Industries, the Colorado Tourism Office and SpokesBUZZ, along with media and music industry partners from throughout the state.

The week’s festivities will kick off on Tuesday, March 17 with a celebration of Colorado’s commitment to creativity and innovation, presented by Colorado Innovation Network (COIN).

“The Colorado Music Party gives us an unparalleled opportunity to show off the incredible musical talent found across the state — especially this year, with five days and nights of highly visible performances,” said Dani Grant, executive director of SpokesBUZZ. “But what it also allows us to showcase is the experienced, well-connected creative professionals that represent the Colorado music industry. Our partners include venues, management and marketing agencies, festival organizers, event producers and other industry experts that support national and international talent. The expertise on display at the Colorado Music Party isn’t just limited to the musicians onstage.”

To demonstrate, Grant points to artists such as Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds — a national festival favorite booked at Colorado-based New Belgium Brewing’s Tour de Fat — and to Residual Kid — an Austin-based youth rock band exploding on the national scene, thanks in part to Denver manager Bart Dahl. Bands connected through other Colorado music industry contacts such as 7s Management and AEG-Live will also perform throughout the week.

“While the overall lineup remains heavily centered on Colorado bands, that’s only part of the story when it comes to Colorado music,” Grant said. “The infrastructure for the industry is evident as well. Some of the smartest, hardest-working people in the business are here — but you’re going to find them behind the scenes most of the time, not standing in the spotlight.”

Performance dates and times and schedules are still being solidified, but bands currently confirmed to play the Colorado Music Party 2015 include: Dave Arcari, In The Whale, Inner Oceans, Kitty Crimes, Publicist UK, Residual Kid, Robert Cline Jr., Rubedo, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, SPELLS, The Yawpers, and Wheelchair Sports Camp.

Must Read: Martin Mills on Billboard Streaming Charts

goat:

just some food for thought as it relates to my most recent post on what LOCAL bands rely on for revenue, and how streaming plays into it.

Originally posted on MUSIC • TECHNOLOGY • POLICY:

In case you haven’t noticed, Billboard and The Official Charts have begun including streaming in measuring chart ranking.  Now think about that for a minute–in a world where artists like Taylor Swift are windowing with great success how can you ever think that it’s a good idea to use streaming as a way of measuring success?  There’s deeper reasons for why streaming is at best a premature but even if you don’t have time to think about the deeper reasons, the mere fact that it is becoming increasingly obvious that streaming can be a null set for an increasing number of artists would make you question that wisdom.

As Martin Mills said in a must-read recent speech (“MARTIN MILLS: NEW BILLBOARD CHART RISKS DUMBING DOWN MUSIC“):

Generally speaking, independent labels work principally with album artists, the majors, since their main marketing tool is airplay, primarily with artists capable…

The Colorado Sound S9|EP8 FEB 2015

Freezing-Cold-Man-Shiver-on-Winter-Season-Coloring-PageThe cold and snow have jarred my brain somehow.  Normally I spend my Sundays working on this blogpost.  Yeah – no.  Not this week.  Somehow I got stuck.

The music and radio news seems flooded this past couple of months with articles and opinions about streaming vs downloading vs cd vs vinyl sales.  It is a very dense and complicated story, but basically it goes like this:  at a high level, cd sales and album sales are still declining globally, and in the US.  Vinyl sales continue to increase, although it is still a niche market.  Download sales are also decreasing in the face of accelerating use of streaming, as smartphones become more fully integrated into everyday activities.

According to a Monday morning post at Digital Music News entitled The End Of An Era: Starbucks Will Soon Stop Selling CDs, “Last year, Americans bought 257 million albums – an 11% drop from 2013. Of those, 140.8 million were CDs (a 15% drop from 2013)… However, 9.2 million vinyl records were sold – a 51.8% increase from 2013. And now vinyl accounts for 6% of ALL album sales.” The author goes on to say that, “In 2014 there were 476 million “albums sold” – according to Billboard’s new system of 1,500 streams = one album sale.”

Here’s the real takeaway.  Local bands still sell cds.  Local bands still sell downloads.  Local bands, promoters, and venues still charge an entrance fee.  Music is not free.  It is not free to make, it is not free to produce, it is not free to present.  It is not someone else’s responsibility to pay for it.

For all the years I’ve done radio we’ve always gotten the music for free – because advertisers were willing to pay for us to broadcast it.  But only the publishers/songwriters have ever gotten paid in this deal.

Musicians per se do not and have not ever made a dime from radio.  Nor do local bands earn income level revenue from streaming; certainly not enough to afford a cheap dinner at a local diner.  Locals make money off of door charges, tickets, and HARD merchandise and PAID downloads – particularly from sites such as BandCamp (the reason I utilize that service for new music shares).

BOTTOM LINE:  If WE don’t support it, who will?  Some who make music do it as a hobby.  Most do if you study the numbers.  But even hobbies cost money, and being a hobbyist doesn’t mean doing it for free or that you’re not any good at what you’re doing.  Making a full time living at music has NEVER been easy, in fact it’s always been damned near impossible.  That’s been true for all time.  It doesn’t mean we should ever take it for granted, or expect to receive it for free.

BUY LOCAL. BUY DIRECT.  BUY LIVE.  Most local shows charge $5-$10 to get in.  Figure 100 people = $500-$1000 at the door.  It’s been my experience that MOST local bands don’t get 100 paid through the door.  But, for the sake of argument let’s take a band that can earn $1000 per appearance (there are a few).  The band would have to play 200 shows to gross $200,000.00 (two hundred thousand).  Divide that by however many people there are to pay in that “small business.”

For the record, MOST local bands don’t get close to smelling $200,000 a year.

Now add the cost of producing a recording.

It’s pretty common to see $800-$1200 cost per song finished and packaged… but not effectively promoted.  15 songs = $12,000 – $18,000.  Average price sold per song = <$1.00.  Average price earned per unit of listen via streaming = <$.01 USD.

BUY DIRECT when you’re able.  BUY LIVE – see a show.  BUY LOCAL always.

A friend, Trinity Demask, sent out a reminder about her new upcoming album and attached was a link to the “Standing O Project.”  From the website:

standing o project logoThe Standing “O” Project is a network of music and delight that generates financial support for musicians.

In return for a small monthly contribution, fans get a ton of exclusive music, rare interviews, unusual content, and the opportunity to get to know artists on a personal level.

Every month, 50% of the membership revenue goes directly back to the musicians. The rest supports this site and the public radio program that spawned it.

This project was built by touring musicians who understand the challenges of living from gig to gig.

The site is populated by several BIG names among the 300+ singer songwriters, including from Colorado, Lisa Bell, Philip Bailey, Megan Burtt, and Katey Laurel to name a few.

VIDEO PICK of the WEEK 

Keep your eyes open to local media for shows from rising blues/rhythm & blues/rock guitarist/vocalist Taylor Scott – who is touring with Otis Taylor, as well as his own band that at least according to this video includes Jon Wirtz on keyboards and Chris Harris on bass (I don’t know the drummer).  RIYL Derek Trucks etc … Can’t wait to see Taylor at a festival event this summer.

COLORADO AMPLIFIES OPPORTUNITIES FOR ARTISTS AND INDUSTRY

COLORADO AMPLIFIES OPPORTUNITIES FOR ARTISTS AND INDUSTRY  

120+ bands to represent Colorado at five-day/five-night music party in Austin March 17 – 21 

 FORT COLLINS, Colo., February 17, 2015 — Event organizers announced today that The Colorado Music Party will return to Austin in March, this time with five consecutive days and nights of back-to-back performances highlighting the dynamic Colorado music industry. Featuring more than 120 bands on two stages from Tuesday, March 17 through Saturday, March 21, the Colorado Music Party will once again take place at The 512 on Sixth St. and be presented by Colorado Creative Industries, the Colorado Tourism Office and SpokesBUZZ, along with media and music industry partners from throughout the state.

The week’s festivities will kick off on Tuesday, March 17 with a celebration of Colorado’s commitment to creativity and innovation presented by Colorado Innovation Network (COIN). Featuring a small-scale trade show highlighting some of the state’s most inspired initiatives, the afternoon event will invite bands, brands and fans to join in the opening ceremonies of the Colorado Music Party — complete with a flag-raising set to a live soundtrack of some of the finest singer-songwriter talent the state has to offer. Colorado music of all varieties will continue into the evening, with the downstairs and rooftop stages in full swing after 6:00 p.m.

“This year’s Colorado presence in Austin — during one of largest music festivals in the world — is unprecedented, thanks to the continuing collaborative spirit of our partners in the Colorado music industry, and the commitment by the state of Colorado to our collective cultural and creative momentum,” said Dani Grant, executive director of SpokesBUZZ. “We’re not only giving Colorado bands a chance to share their talent with the world; they are also afforded an opportunity to further develop their business skills, forging connections within the industry that are only made possible at this event. Similarly, Grant said, Colorado companies can “connect with one another, attract the attention of the creative community that descends on Austin for the week, and demonstrate Colorado’s unique appeal as a place to visit, work and play.”

To further this kind of connectivity, Colorado Creative Industries and the Colorado Tourism Office will also be hosting shared meeting and work space for media and music industry at a nearby loft in downtown Austin. The Colorado Headquarters will provide an opportunity for media, sponsors, and invited guests to relax, recharge and rendezvous with their business contacts in a quiet space set apart from the industry convention and live concert commotion.

While the full lineup for the Colorado Music Party has yet to be officially announced, musicians from across the state, as well as bands connected through Colorado music industry contacts such as 7s Management and AEG-Live will perform throughout the week. Demonstrating the diversity of musical talent and the wide range of genres that Colorado is becoming well known for is an important element to the Colorado Music Party, Grant said.

“For a long time there was a perception that Colorado music was all bluegrass and banjos,” Grant said. “This year’s Colorado Music Party will give people hundreds of opportunities to learn otherwise and to expand their understanding of Colorado music. Though we certainly will have some bluegrass and banjo scattered throughout the five days.”

Colorado Music Party highlights currently scheduled for the week include:

  • Tuesday, March 17: opening ceremonies and COIN kickoff event
  • Wednesday, March 18: a full day of Colorado hip-hop on the rooftop
  • Thursday, March 19: the sixth annual SpokesBUZZ showcase
  • Friday, March, 20: Play Fort Collins – featuring the music of Fort Collins, Colorado
  • Saturday, March 21: bands presented by the City of Boulder Office of Arts & Culture

For the most up-to-date details on events, bands and lineup, and to RSVP to the Colorado Music Party, visit www.coloradomusicparty.com. SpokesBUZZ, Colorado Creative Industries and the Colorado Tourism Office are the presenting sponsors for the 2015 Colorado Music Party. Media partners include Westword, KUNC, KRFC, and Colorado Public Radio’s OpenAir.

The Colorado Sound S9|EP7 FEB 2015

valentine dayI am unabashedly in love.  Happy Valentine’s Day (after).  Today (Sunday) is a video day.  There’s no football, and I need to find something non-sports to fill the void.  I picked The Colorado Sound TV.  A nice 60″ tv through a Technics receiver w/ KLH speakers (yeah, old school shit for sure) and a wifi hookup from my laptop … and as I hit the new Medic video “If I Could Stay,” and reminisce on last night’s show at Herman’s Hideaway (Chris Daniels & the Kings cd release show, and a date night with Mrs Goat), I feel an intense rush of what I can only describe as love for the brilliance I see and hear around me every single day.

Crime Scene albumCongrats to Lance Bakemeyer (bass) for getting back up on stage last night with Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene at Herman’s after sustaining serious back and wrist damage from a fall this past November.  Mrs Goat and I bumped into Kerry and Paul from the Crime Scene at a late night breakfast joint…both very excited about the energy that the revamped rhythm section brought to the show.  Could be a new record on the way.  The band straddles a real fine line on “the Other Side” of rockabilly and blues, and during the course of their opening set also featured a driving calypso infused arrangement of the Informants hit, “Salvation.”  This is a hot rod car show band that doesn’t pander to our sanitized perceptions of the past.  In a different era these guys would have been thought of as criminals, hence the perfect application of the name.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Happy Valentine’s Day release from Medic.  Sometimes a hit is just what it is to begin with, a hit.  Added immediately to video rotation, and as soon as I get the song file from the band it will immediately be added to both the radio show rotation and The Colorado Sound Live365.

The Colorado Sound S9|EP6 FEB 2015

goat on boardIn Offstage …Beyond the Music EP7 | PT1 Wendy and Charles and I spent a fair amount of time discussing the “industry” of music; that is to say, how does how often a band or artist perform affect their career standing?  Does a band that plays every week, often two or more times a week, suffer from overexposure and how does it affect popularity and earnings?

This issue of earnings is prevalent among musicians today, all the more so now that the U.S. Copyright Office has released a 245 proposal, Copyright & the Music Marketplace, transforming the fundamentals of music copyright concerning both recorded works and the underlying composition/publishing rights.

“The Copyright Office’s recommendations address almost every aspect of the music landscape, including the existing statutory licenses, the role of performing rights organizations, terrestrial performance rights for sound recordings, federal protection for pre-1972 sound recordings, access to music ownership data, and the concerns of songwriters and recording artists. These recommendations present a series of balanced trade offs designed to create a more rational music licensing system for all.” http://copyright.gov/docs/musiclicensingstudy/

Equally, a story in Westword this past week, that also appeared in other “Westword” publications around the country, raised the ire of many in the local scene when the author lists six reasons Why Musicians Don’t Deserve to Get Paid …including:

6. Most Music Sucks
5. Art Has Never Made Money
4. You Are Already Rich
3. Feeling Pain Makes You Better
2. No One Deserves Anything
1. You Care Too Much (about financial compensation)

Nobody practices law, medicine, or plumbing as a hobby.  Perhaps ironically, most who pick up an instrument do just that – take up music as a hobby.  So to use the example comparing plumbers to musicians appears to be a non-sequitur to my mind.

Far less than 1% of all the musicians I’ve ever known in my life have taken up music as a lifelong professional career – and there are as many examples of how they earn their living as there are examples of those who have tried.  The freeway to profitability in music, dance, acting, art is littered with the forgotten names of tens upon tens of thousands of those who have stepped onto a stage, or drawn or sculpted an image.  And that’s just in my lifetime.

I can’t say with any degree of confidence that I know what’s fair when it comes to how much to pay someone for a performance, or for the right to access their music via publicly available means such as the internet or broadcast radio or television.  My hope is that those who wish to establish a full time sustainable career in music (art) are able to navigate what is simply a chaotic and overly confusing and sometimes frightening life as an independent businessperson selling something that too many take for granted as available for free.
