Music, Venues and Video’s.

Country music is part of the roots of modern music, and though you may not here it, you will find it there.
The other night I saw Diamond Rio at a very small venue in Colorado. To me small is sometimes better.
Why? Your closer to the band, you can hear the music better and it makes you feel like you are listening at home sometimes. Over the years I have seen many rock bands and country bands and others in small venues and it helps me get a better sense of what they are like personally, professionally and lets me know what they will be like at a large venue.
One of the member of Diamond Rio belonged to a band I enjoyed way back when Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
Oddly enough this particular guitar player from Diamond Rio was also my inspiration for learning how to play the guitar all those years ago.
Here are some old and new songs that may inspire some of you.

Trace Adkins “Some women may not admit this one.”

Boy Bands they are still here, NKOTB, BSB, McFly and One Direction.

New Kids On The Block will be releasing their new album “10” (Out in April). I must admit I wasn’t really a NKOTB fan before, I was more of a Backstreet Boys person, but I have been slowly warming to the new NKOTB.
With that I though I would look at a few of the Boy bands that have appealed in the past and now.

Backstreet Boys are also still going strong, they did an album with NKOTB and came out with their own “This is us.” They will be having their 20th Anniversary this year and a new album will be coming out soon.

McFly has released “Memory Lane, The Best of McFly” and are out traveling doing great shows. We hope to see the new album soon, but enjoy this video for starters.

And the new members of the boy band breed, who seem to be making an impression here is the US is One Direction.


Billy K Band..Gossomer..and Oscars for Sound Editing & Mixing.

billykFirst up, I’d like to congratulate Billy K Band for making the Nashville Tennessee Music Charts. We interviewed him back in 2011 before his recent album (Outrun the Rain) was started. He also has a page now on MTV and CMT.
GossamerPPIt’s an album with a tremendous amount of feeling. I’ve now listened to it a number of time and it’s now one of those I put on my hot list. If you haven’t heard it, take a listen and let me know what you think.
Last on my list to talk about today is the Oscar for Sound Editing.
If you hadn’t heard it was a tie this year between Skyfall and Zero Dark Thirty.
This is one of the category I usually get right on the picks, and well this year I was half right.
Not an easy category to pick when you understand what it is all about, but if a movie messes this up you definitely know. I remember when I heard We Come in Peace without the proper sound in it. Makes a big difference.
The same with Sound Mixing, if it’s done poorly it’s the first thing you pick up on in a movie.
Congrats to the Oscar winners.


Chris Mann and Jesse Campbell….The Voice

I don’t normally watch things like “The Voice” or shows like that but I have a couple friends who convinced me to watch, but I watched season 3 and found two people I would like to talk about this time out.
ChrisMann2Chris Mann who made it to the last four during the season is first up. His album “Roads” is now available and he was just on “Conan” showing it off. This singer songwriter hails from Kansas and sings pop, opera, and adult contemporary. If you like any of that style of music you should check out everything Chris Mann at his website.
Next up is Jesse Campbell.JesseCampbell
A number of people believed that believed he got the shaft from his coach (Christina Aguilera).
I’m one of those. He hails from Illinois and sings R&B, gospel. You can purchase songs he performed on his website and from iTunes. He is looking for help to get his new album out, but he does have three older albums out.
Both artist have there albums available on Amazon. Take a listen.
