The Colorado Sound S9 EP20 May 2015

B.B. King passing away overshadowed everything this past week. Like other icons his legacy and his influence permeates much of our culture.  One simply does not talk about blues without B.B. King being present.  And of course, there’s a Denver connection … or two.

If you know nothing else about B.B. King you know The Thrill is Gone, the hit that launched him into both the  blues and rock and roll stratosphere.  The Thrill is Gone was produced by Bill Szymczyk, who for a brief moment would co-own Denver based Tumbleweed Records, and was a radio dj.  He also produced the first album recorded at Caribou Ranch, Joe Walsh’s Barnstorm, during the time that Joe was living in the Denver area.

Connection number two:  B.B. King and Big Head Todd & the Monsters – Crossroad Blues from 100 Years of Robert Johnson … a duet with Todd Park Mohr.

RIP Mr. King

The Colorado Sound S9|EP19 May 2015

I spent yesterday (Sunday) collecting some new music.  Well, actually I did a lot of spring cleaning.  Before the rain set in I managed to get my lawnmower serviced .. then the rain came and I devoted myself to sifting through the over 6000 tracks of Colorado music I had stored.  I managed to get it filtered down to over 600 albums and over 1200 song titles before adding more.

coverOf the things I found to add, I came across the latest from Michal Minert of Pretty Lights fame by way of Listen, the high school/college hip-hop group that featured Michal with Derek Smith (Pretty Lights) and Cory Eberhardt (DubSkin) …  I’m not normally a big EDM fan, mostly because for me it usually lacks song structure – a big issue for my ears.  However, in this case, Michal displays an uncanny ear for fusing EDM with jazz, hip hop, and electronica styles to produce Space Jazz.  Of course being slightly stoned on some good sativa coupled with listening under a set of Audio Technica ATHM45 studio earphones helped immensely.  Next step is to turn it up to 11 in the living room lol…. check it out – it’s a pretty cool listen.  

I also added the newest from Vertical Arrays, SoundRabbit, Whiskey Autumn, and Ben Haughland that I’ll be featuring in the coming weeks.  And despite rumors to the contrary that I don’t listen to stoner rock, check out the latest from Monocle Stache that I’m likely to add to the after 8PM rotation at The Colorado Sound LIVE365.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Call me a fan; I really like what this band has been up to with this latest ep called Axis of Love.

The Colorado Sound S9|EP17 April/May 2015

Day 2 Denver Music Summit.  The Future of the Music Business + an industry round table with about 20 or so local, regional, and out of state musicians and industry personnel.  I think the big takeaway for me was realizing we’re sitting in a pretty good place here in Colorado.

UCD Professor Storm Gloor covered the current trends and fast changing technologies that are shaping the near future, without prognosticating on what may or may not happen years from now.  And the round table discussion I took part in more or less reinforced what I already felt, that despite the nearly horrific rise in the price of housing our creative community continues to set a standard looked at and talked about coast to coast – and that the only thing missing are jobs in publishing, licensing, and management and booking agencies, which for now at least are still safely settled on either coast.

Another pretty big takeaway from the weekend was verification that 18-24 and 45-64 audiences exist for both music discovery and live music attendance, and it’s the 25-44 crowd that’s largely absent at live music events, but still the most desired radio audience for advertisers.  This has been true for a few decades now.

The question was brought up, when the last of the baby boomers (now 50) pass on through, what happens?  After all, how many acts can still fill stadiums?  Jagger et.al. are now in their mid-seventies .. the youngest members left of the WWII generation … and the average age of the average touring musician today is 52, at the youngest end of the boomer generation.  One of the most likely outcomes is the demise of the full on stadium show and a rise in smaller venues (in the 1500+ seat range) and festival events.  Who is the next act or acts capable of doing stadium shows?

Video Pick of the Week

I had my camera with me, but as usual it was the spontaneous “oh crap I’d better shoot some stuff” moment that compelled me to take it out the holster and actually push record.  Here’s just a taste of what I saw on Saturday night.  I did a full audio recording of the DMS, but haven’t had time to review and edit.

The Colorado Sound S9 | EP15 April 2015

I love Monday mornings.  That is all.  Here’s what was played this week on the show.  There was more new music this weekend than I’ve seen in several weeks at least – the early spring blitz of new releases as bands and artists get ready for the outdoor concert season that gets under way at the end of April.

FOCOMX is the official unofficial start of the festival season, and if you’ve never been now is a good time to start. It’s pretty magnificent in scope and scale, this year hosting 300 acts from around the region over two nights and a full day.

Dearling’s rendition of the Fleetwood Mac classic “Landslide” was a refreshing reminder that there’s still plenty of room in the songs of others for local artists to explore and redefine in their own voices.  In the meantime, their last single, “Do You Love Me,” is my video pick of the week offering.

Fox St continues to lend credence to their ever growing popularity as a classic sounding band in the tradition of those from the early 70s that could have been or were comprised of the likes of Leon Russell, Eric Clapton, Bobby Whitlock and perhaps Joe Cocker or Delaney Bramlett – needless to say they’ve been among my favorites for a few years now.

Instant Empire can lay legitimate claim to being at the top of the list of contemporary indie/alternative (new alternative) bands in the region replacing the likes of Photo Atlas or Hot I.Q.s with their new single “Dead Air.” Their new album due out this June.

And I’m not really sure what I can say about John Common that I haven’t written about in years past – he is simply one of the region’s most deeply intellectual lyrical craftsmen.   The new single is paired with a spoken word piece from John that I think is his first, and is marvelously produced by Immersive Studios in Boulder.

Truthfully, it was a hell of a week for new music, leading me to the new single from Natalie Walker, who the last I heard from was more ingrained into the CCM (contemporary Christian music) market segment than the secular world the new record reaches out to.  Natalie has had a brilliant career to this point with songs embedded in numerous high profile television shows.  The move from Denver to Crested Butte seems to maybe being a catalyst of change in her view of the mysteries of life for her.  I look forward to exploring the rest of the new album with you.

Don’t forget – COMING MAY 7 to KSUT (Ignacio/Durango) 10PM-12AM.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

OFFSTAGE BEYOND THE MUSIC

The Colorado Sound S9|EP14 April 2015

Goat_Logo_color_on_whiteThis weekend I ran this real impromptu non-scientific poll asking about buying habits – and no surprise it was sparsely answered, mostly by musicians or those involved in local music.  I will be developing a new poll soon that is more properly formatted, that a better suited analyst than I can manage.

Local music requires our support.  The Colorado Sound is about telling the big picture – from the superstar to the newly born. It’s about sharing the stories of my friends like Chris Daniels, John Macy, Wendy Woo, Hazel Miller and local legends known and unknown – David Glasser, Eddie Turner, Reed Foehl, Rock and Roll  Hall of Fame member Richie Furay and Colorado Music Hall of Fame Executive Director G. Brown.    You can hear their stories in Offstage Beyond the Music.  This week I’m extremely proud to present an intimate conversation with Hazel Miller.

I’d like to thank the Greeley Blues Jam for supporting the Colorado Sound.  It’s an incredible honor to have their support.  Thank you to the Greeley Chamber of Commerce and Al Bricker.  The Greeley Blues Jam features some of the best loved local blues, blues-rock, and R&B acts with headliners Delbert McClinton, Elvin Bishop and more … I hope you’ll join me on June 12 & 13.

Also coming up .. June 6 at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre – Locals x Locals a festival supporting local musicians.  This is why I do what I do – that we can celebrate and honor local musicians. The goal of Locals x Locals is to create a space for our musical community to thrive. If you are a local musician, we would like to offer you free admission and a beer. If you’re a fan, please be honest and support your local music scene with your ticket purchase.Treat this as an opportunity to meet new musicans and catch up with old friends.

And finally — AUG 9 at The Mishawaka Amphitheatre – The Colorado Sound Presents Hazel Miller | Chris Daniels and the Kings .. with special guest opening bands Goatz! (my band) and Williams Reserve (my son’s band).  Can you see my grin??  :)

Thanks for supporting :)
