A number of things are out of wack in the music industry. One of those things has to do with songwriters. Aloe Blacc’s article in WIRED, check it out. As part of the discussion I understand that Taylor Swift removed herself from Spotify. I must say that is a bold move and I hope others follow here lead on this. If you don’t know about Spotify here is an article on WIRED! and one from the New Yorker.
It’s been a busy few months and I will be reviewing a number of albums soon but just to get the year rolling.

If you haven’t seen this amazing show on HBO your missing a piece of music history. The show brings the influences of what make our music today to the for front and each week they also create a song around the interviews and influences discussed that week. It represents where our musical roots have come and how over time they have connected together.
Check the website, Foo Fighters Sonic Highways.
Also I listened to the new album with Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. It’s amazing. But here is a little taste of what the album is like.
I was listening to some of my older music the other day and it sparked a look at one song that has had a lot of success over time. == Singing in the Rain ===

Well I was very impressed with the latest album but I must say last night’s performance in Denver was great.
Thank you for the half hour encore as well. It was spectacular.
Also I’d like to say that the other night at Mo’ Betta Gumbo in Loveland had a very talented blues singer Johnny Johnston. He will be at Mo’ Betta Again on the 18th of April and at the Cactus Grill in Loveland on the 19th.
