So as most of you already know, my local artist spotlight bit is being played on KDHX. I think it sounds pretty good after getting over my initial thought, which was pretentious and retarded. I always get a little uneasy when I'm described as a classically trained musician. It puts this idea in the listeners head that I'm some sort of prodigy, which I'm obviously not. Every single instrument I play, I play mediocre at best. I just have a way of putting it all together. But since I did have classical lessons as a child, I'm classified as classically trained. This is something I need to get over.
Santhem also got some air time last Friday on Thomas Crone's "Silver Tray" show. I caught the beginning of the song and thought that it was just local artist spotlight clip. Then I realized that he was playing the whole song. Surprised I yelled at work, "Oh my God! They're playing the whole song!"
No one really knew what I was talking about...except for Smalls, but she knows everything.
You can hear both the Local Artist Spotlight and a clip from the Silver Tray show in the mini iPod.
I've got my stage banter lines memorized for this Saturday. Taking a new approach and I think it works pretty well. I changed my mind at the last minute about doing an all Acapella set in IL. I'm going to treat that show as the dress rehearsal for the release show. If I really want to tour next summer, or ever, I might as well bite the bullet now and start playing back to back shows.
So in light of this, I've decided to play a 15 minute acapella set tonight at Friendly's to further promote the Cd Release Party. (10.10.09 @ the Luminary Center for the Arts with a Listening Party @ the Royale immediately after the CD Release)
Hope to see you all there!
And the flier as promised...
p.s. I only have 30 more disks to make!
Yay for ME!
...that is all...
