Happy full moon Monday! We had a wonderful road trip last week, travelling to Casper, Fort Collins, Denver and Billings before returning home. Along the way we met with Amanda from Music Promotion, Inc. and Gina Sicilia, winner of Best Blues Artist from the most recent round of the LA Music Critic Awards. We also got to hang out with Australian blues queen Anni Piper at the Magic City Blues Festival, as well as Miranda Lambert’s new fiancée Anderson East, review their amazing performances, and catch some of Brian Setzer’s Rockabilly Riot show too.
This week we’ll be heading out to the Western Montana Fair to see what music they have going, and hopefully catch some of Melissa Forrette‘s show at the annual Chicks and Chaps rodeo clinic.
K-SYRAN’S “DIZZY” CONTINUES TO CLIMB THE CHARTS
K-Syran continues her climb up the charts with her latest song, “Dizzy,” produced by Amanda’s husband, Eric Alexandrakis. She currently sits in the #32 spot on the BDS/Billboard Mainstream Top 40 Indicator chart. Check it out and tell us it doesn’t remind you of some of the great hits of ABBA.
DAN TEDESCO IS ‘CHASING THE LIGHTNING’
First Denny Tedesco brought us The Wrecking Crew, the untold story behind so much of the music of the 60’s. Now Dan Tedesco brings us Chasing the Lightning, the story of an life on the road as an independent musician. Check out this new film as he heads out to share the film before Festival season begins. The film is amazing and we highly recommend you go see it when it comes to your town. For more info, check out his website.
Check out this new track from The Crowleys, “LA Sunset,” with its multi-genre sounds. The vocals are raw, the soundtrack is sweeping, but the potential for this band comes through loud and clear. Please let us know what you think.
Australian band Cloning the Mammoth will be releasing their new single “San Francisco” on August 11. We really dig this song, and think you will too. Please let us know if we’re right.
NEW MUSIC VIDEOS
Here’s the latest video from LA Music Critic Awards winner Amilia K. Spicer for her second single “Lightning.” Enjoy this Americana jewel.
Speaking of new videos from LA Music Award winners, you simply must check out the latest from FlecHaus. Their video for “Pitter Patter” simply kicks ass, foretelling the greatness that is in store for this band. We strongly encourage to check them out and grab a copy of their music – you will definitely not be sorry 🙂
Last but not least this week is another Australian artist, Josh Johnstone. We love his video for “Just What it Is.” It is infectious, upbeat and the perfect song to kick start your new week.
Have a great week. We’ll be back soon with more “Get it or Forget It,” as well as some live performance reviews.
