Monday mashup 2017: Vol. 43

Day three of hospice care and I’ve discovered that this is definitely not for the faint of heart.  My brother and I are working hard to provide care for our Dad.  I had no idea how much work is involved in that.  Mad props to anyone who does this for a living.  Taking a break from duties while the hospice nurse works on him and thought it was time to work on our Monday Mashup.

WENDY SWEETLOVE SELLS OUT CD RELEASE SHOW

Wendy Sweetlove, who we introduced to you a few months back at our LA Music Critic Award winners showcase, recently performed at Hotel Cafe for a sold-out house, performing all the songs from her recent release Dirty Sunday.   Alana Sweetwater opened the show, and we wish we could have been there.  From what we hear, it was one of the best shows of the year.

THE CREAM CONTINUES TO RISE WITH MILCK’s REMAKE OF HER VIRAL HIT, “QUIET” 

In light of the recent news about sexual assault in the entertainment industry, MILCK has remade her video for  “Quiet.”  We think it is one of the most powerful videos we have ever seen, both visually and sonically.  We especially love the inclusion of the orchestra, as well as the multiple story lines.  Thank you Atlantic Records for allowing your artist to speak her mind and share this amazing song, which should help in bringing closure to these victims.

DAVID GARFIELD TEAMS WITH SMOKEY ROBINSON FOR NEW SINGLE

The new single by David Garfield, “I Lied,” ft. J. Paris, was co-written by the one and only Smokey Robinson.  The vocals of J.

Monday mashup 2017: Vol. 41 (Updated)

MEDIA OUTLET DAMAGED IN FIRES NEEDS YOUR HELP

Music Junkie Press, a great rock and roll online site based in Santa Rosa, was burned to the ground in the Tubs fire. They lost everything – offices, computers, their home, a collection of 70 vintage guitars and over 100 classic drumheads, all their photo equipment, their antique camera collection and all their paper records, including 40 years of rock memorabilia.  They are still reporting on rock concerts and posting photos from shows online, although they are living in a motel room and using borrowed equipment.  They could use some help in rebuilding.  Check out the GoFundMe campaign set up by bands for them.

Monday mashup 2017: Vol. 37

Took a couple of days off from writing to spend some time with my family.  Went with Dad and my brother up to the OKC suburb of Midwest City to visit my sister-in-law, her folks, and my niece and nephew.  Ate way too much food and needed Sunday to recuperate.  Ready for a new week that will be special with the Durango Songwriters Expo in Wellington, Colorado this weekend after my final three days of enjoyment with my family.

KELLY McGRATH CELEBRATES CMT DEBUT

Two weeks ago we debuted the new music video by Kelly McGrath.  This past Thursday, that video debuted on CMT, which McGrath celebrated with a screening and concert at The Family Wash in Nashville, where she was joined by her entire management team.  Congratulations to McGrath on this special occasion.  We hope to see her at #1 in no time on CMT.

NEW SINGLES

Take a listen to “This Could Mean the End,” the latest from Australian Lachlan Vines.  It has a smooth vibe that makes the poignant lyrics a little easier to take.  Please let us know what you think.

Our next single also comes from Australia.  Please welcome Bluebird to North America, with stunning song, “Invincible.”  We are very impressed with these guys, especially the lead vocals.   We think this band will take flight soon, so check them out now and get on board before they become a household name.

Our last single for today is another dynamic female named Priest, who has released her first single, “White Wing Dove” from her forthcoming EP.  Her sound is very reminiscent of Mandi Perkins and of Verona, and we are very excited to share her with you.  Enjoy this morsel.

Monday mashup 2017: Vol. 34

Good morning, world.  As we reach the 16th anniversary of 9/11, may we all stop to reflect on how our world has changed since that fateful day.  I was preparing to spend the day with my friends from SHeDAISY at a concert they were having in California when I was told by my ex-wife to turn on the TV.  Just as the picture came into focus, I watched in horror as the second plane hit the towers, and then was glued to my set like most of us the remainder of the day.  Alan Jackson summed it up best when he sang, “Where were you when the world stopped turning?”

It was music that helped us recover, and it is music that keeps us going forward.  That is why this blog exists, and why we scour the world to find music that speaks to us.  Make sure you thank those that bring us hope and peace through their music.
