Modern Daybreak joined us for this amazing tour de force of their excellent musicianship. All four songs they performed were perfect examples of writing songs with "hooks" Enjoy this show.Modern Daybreak, formerly called Chelusier, began in May of 2016 when Justin was introduced to Omar via a mutual friend. The two stayed together and kept writing music while searching for a bass player. In February of 2017, Matt joined the team as the bass player. Since then, the band became a second family for its members. They have performed in many local Chicago venues and released its full album Leo in late 2018. In August 2019, the band changed their name to Modern Daybreak. Their first release "Headspace" and its music video set a new tone for the future of the band.

Episode 744 - Rosalba Valdez
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/2T2EuCPBnkY/744-rosalba-valdez-8019
Rosalba Valdez is a Mexican-American musician bred in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago. From the age of five, Rosalba would take guitar classes anywhere and everywhere they were offered in her community. "Rosie" would eventually find a home at Lincoln United Methodist Church, led by activists/pastors Emma Lozano and Walter Coleman. Regularly playing for Sunday services and community events lead her to grow up in an environment of activism and community engagement/organizing all while finding her music had as much place in the struggle as it did anywhere else. Rosie learned that she could speak out about the injustices in her community and stay true to her identity all while pursuing her passion. The name of her debut EP, "Yo Soy Mexicana," comes from the immense pride Rosalba has for being of Mexican descent and being first generation, Mexican-American born of immigrant parents. In today's political climate Rosalba believes it is important to not only be vocal but active in the community. Rosalba is proud of her culture and heritage and seeks to preserve and honor it with her music. Click here to view all the Videos from Rosalba's Podcast Be sure to check out Rosalba's amazing music video filmed in Cuba

Episode 741 - Conrad Merced
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/_8SgkySHsPA/741-conrad-merced-7993
Conrad Merced is a singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer based out of Chicago, IL. Being raised in a musical family, he started playing in music groups at the age of 13. He was the former front man for the indie rock band The Red Jacket, and the shoegaze, electronic duo Shoplifter. His music has been featured in films, podcasts and in various music compilations. At the age of 25, Conrad abruptly stopped writing and playing music.Tender BeatsFollowing the unexpected death of his mother, Conrad picked up his guitar after a ten year hiatus and began writing songs for the album "Tender Beats." This lush collection of songs feature catchy finger-style acoustic guitar backed behind atmospheric, digital textures and drum machines to create a unique blend of ambient electronic-folk.Conrad teamed up with engineer Rick Riggs at Handwritten Recording Studio to help shape and bring to life his wall of sound. The album could have easily stood alone as a folk album but with the composition of orchestral instruments, vintage synthesizers and electronic drum machines, the album bends genres without compromising its melody and thoughtful lyrics. Conrad's songs have been described as "Nick Drake meets Roxy Music" and "Elliott Smith meets Radiohead."The themes of the album touch on dealing with the loss and death of a loved one, reflections on aging, overcoming writer's block, breaking up, falling in love, and a nostalgia piece about growing up in the 90's to immigrant parents. Click here to view the videos from this Podcast

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/nGEF930dnYY/738-shades-7956
The Shades came into the studio on a Fall evening and proceeded to blow me away with their amazing three part harmonies. You must go see these guys live, they are amazing.The Shades are a Chicago-based pop trio comprised of NBC 'The Voice' contestant, Andrew DeMuro, and brothers Phil and Mark Jacobson. Equipped primarily with their voices and acoustic guitars, The Shades draw on a variety of influences to create an uncommonly good blend of pop, rock, folk, and soul. Impressive arrangements, tight harmonies, and creative mashups are hallmarks of The Shades' live act, which has reached thousands of audience members between Chicago's City Winery, Navy Pier, and Lincoln Hall, with appearances on Windy City Live and WGN along the way. After receiving nationwide honors when lead vocalist Andrew DeMuro landed a spot on 'Team Adam' in Season 11 of NBC's 'The Voice', The Shades released their first major recorded effort in October 2017 - a six-song EP entitled Miles Made of Inches. The Shades also demonstrate a commitment to making an impact off the stage and in Chicago's underserved communities through their work with Guitars Over Guns, a music and mentoring nonprofit focused on providing healthy after-school arts programming and performance opportunities to students in challenging environments. Follow The Shades journey on Instagram (@WeTheShades) and keep a look out for some new music from the boys coming in summer of 2019. Check out the videos from this Podcast here.

Flood County joined us a couple of months ago. You know how much I appreciate Duos and these two lovely people are one of my favorites.Flood County is the husband and wife duo of Stewart Peck and Katie Meier-Peck. They are known for writing sparse, lyrically rich songs, echoing the work of classic artists like Kris Kristofferson and Guy Clark. The duo released We'll Be Fine, their debut studio effort, on February 9th, 2018. Recorded by Matt Wright (Turnpike Troubadours) at the famed Prairie Sun Studios in Northern California, it blends together a seamless mix of classic country, western swing, and traditional southern folk. The album has been called a "deft and well crafted collection of songs... which would rather underplay their musical hand in favor of a softening soulfulness and delicacy." They are based out of the Chicagoland area. Click here to see the videos from this Podcast

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/x3M9mEWZ2qc/728-curious-grace-black-rabbit-7584
Curious Grace & Black Rabbit is a bold, beautiful mix of instrumentation and vocal layers. The band's got Irish roots and two strong front women, so the name Grace fit like a velvet glove. The band's also steeped in psychedelic rock magic. That's where the black rabbit came in, like a trickster playing with a dark D minor chord. CG&BR makes progressive art rock. New wave and punk-inspired with bluesy, psychedelic grooves, progressive arrangements and anthemic, modern melodies. Their sound combines Irish/Brit-rock influences with intense electric instrumentation, driving rhythms and often dark lyrical content that evokes the beauty of ruin and renewal. Curious Grace & Black Rabbit is: Galway Tom Erangey on bass and vocals,  Mod Mary Erangey on electric cello and vocals, Hollywood John Hickey on guitar, Maestro Bojan Kolevski on keys, Hippie Heidi O'Toole on vocals and Aquaman Scott Way on drums.  Stream on Spotify and SoundCloud. Follow CG&BR on Facebook and Instagram and track them on Bands In Town for show info. For press and marketing inquiries, contact August Forte at august@novo.net.

Carl Nichols,Johanna Rose,Nickels&Rose
Nickel&Rose is an American folk-music duo made up of Upright Bassist Johanna Rose and Guitarist Carl Nichols. They formed in the summer of 2016 and spent their first winter and the following spring traveling Europe, playing dozens of shows in France, Czech Republic, Germany, Romania, Poland, and Ukraine. While in Berlin they recorded their EP, Oh Sweet Love, released in April 2017. Oh Sweet Love, is a sweet-sounding auditory souvenir of Nichols’ and Rose’s four month European journey and a recorded testament to the two-piece’s ability to turn tough times into something vibrant with help from a traveling companion.

Nickel&Rose have influences that span the spectrum of American music. Carl’s background brings elements of West African music and Blues while Johanna brings her experience playing Bluegrass, Folk and Jazz. From loss to heart break to love, Nickel&Rose address the human experience with gentle harmonies and soul stirring cries. With a shared appreciation for traditional music and a desire to break rules, the two have have created a unique sound that embodies Americana's past and future.

Episode 716 - Steve Silver
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/zvWa-nKUCEM/716-steve-silver-6692
Steve Silver, California bred and now Evanston native joined us and performed some of his songs. My favorite was "Train Town". It reminded me of my Dad and I builing a model train setup in the basement long ago.An acclaimed advertising copywriter, Steve found additional creative release in the tenor sax, which he played for two decades. But on the heels of a divorce, he realized it was easier to tell stories without a mouthpiece in his face and he has been a prolific singer/songwriter ever since. His first album was released in 2013. He is currently working on his fourth. He has played stages all across the country, but he lives in Evanston, Il.

Episode 713 - Julianne Q
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/jVU8pJjkYUE/713-julianne-q-6664
Julianne Q and the Band write a new definition of classic. Fronted by the powerful vocals and creative mind of Julianne Quaas, the now four-piece evolution is carving its own path into Chicago's music scene. Julianne Q's debut album (released 2017) has received international attention this year, and displays a 60s-70s tinged blues-rock flavor akin to Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, and Amy Winehouse. Julianne Q and The Band bring their classic rock and blues roots to the Chicago scene. With theatrical larger-than-life performances that embody the spirit of Woodstock, The Band leaves their audience with a truly one of a kind memorable experience. Moving into 2018, you can catch the dynamic group touring in and around the Midwest, as well as putting the talents of drummer and vocalist Jeff Mills, guitarist Chris Arwady, and bassist Egan Franke further into the spotlight. That's the best piece of advice Julianne Q has ever received. When Julianne was halfway through her senior of college, she had a choice to make: follow her heart and pursue music, or follow the theatre path she had laid out for herself through her college career. Just like her favorite poem by Robert Frost, Julianne took the road less travelled upon, and it has made all the difference. She knew she would regret more not pursuing her music dream, and so she did just that. Through her music career, Julianne is going to inspire others to listen to that little voice inside of their hearts and live the lives they were meant to live. Through soulful lyrics and powerful rock melodies, Julianne hopes you will hear her passion and drive in her music. But more importantly, she wants to inspire you to take that leap of faith and pursue your passion, just as she did.Click on this link to see all videos

Episode 710 - Zion Rodman
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/HiMICM5A9tw/710-zion-rodman-6549
Zion Rodman is a versatile musician who spends his free time singing and playing the guitar, bass, piano, and drums. He grew up in Cape Cod, MA, where he played around the cape since the age of 15 and eventually received a BA in music from the University of Massachusetts in Boston. He grew a fan base in New England and by 2017, Zion was performing at historic venues like Club Passim, Caffe Lena, and the House of Blues. He opened for national acts that include Ellis Paul and Jeffrey Gaines. In the summer of 2017, Zion teamed up with producer Alex Katz and released his debut full-length record You're Invited. The folk-rock album received praise and local media attention following its anticipated release. Crossfader Magazine wrote that in an era of "lo-fi bedroom projects, it's refreshing to hear a young creative voice this professionally produced, fully realized, and cohesively structured around a distinct personality and energy." Less than a year later, Zion released an EP titled "Did Not Wake up Today" on January 20th, 2018. This project features heavier topics and harder rock than his debut album. Even before its release, the title track was recognized by AFROPUNK: "Rodman turns up the volume of his melodic indie pop, with his stunning voice just barely masking his anger beneath the hook." Zion currently lives in Chicago with his girlfriend and his cat. While getting settled in a new city, he is exploring folk venues and putting together a professional band to dig into the midwest rock scene. He will be touring from Chicago to Boston in early May of 2018.Click here to see all the videos from this show

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/qYFmA70g2TU/706-humbird-6464
On a cold and Sunny day, into the studio comes a ray of that sunshine by the name of Humbird. Hailing from Minnesota and in Chicago for a show she came in and blew me away as she will you.After traversing 5 continents and 20 countries with only a guitar and a backpack, Humbird returns home to sing songs from the edge of the world. Combining a wintry longing with the warmth of a familiar folktale, Humbird stretches traditional genres of folk and Americana to embrace the unexpected. This music invites a refreshing dissonance into the house, it leaves breadcrumbs along the path and reflects light back at the stars. Creating music out of a mosaic of influences like Joni Mitchell, Bon Iver and Bill Frisell, Humbird weaves it all together with powerful lyrics and a stubborn pursuit of the sound of the North. The release of Humbird's double EP "Elsewhere" and "Where Else" in Summer 2017 is just the beginning. Click here to see all the videos from this show

This is the result of that effort.This Saturday night, Jeff will be returning to one of his favorite breweries in the area to make some music for all of you!It's free, their beer is delightful (seriously, try their wee heavy and their milk stout), and my awesome wife will be there before she moves to Virginia.Come on up to Church Street and have a pint or several with us!Address: 1480 Industrial Drive Unit C Itasca IL 60143 Click here to see all the videos from this show.

Episode 689 - StereoViolet
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/sBmKjClR53c/689-stereoviolet-6176
StereoVioletOne day last spring this band of super creative musicians fronted by the stellar voice of Bianca B. Black came into the studio and rocked my World and now they are about to rock yours.Click here to see all the videos from the showABOUT THE BAND. Most people aren't afraid of the dark. They're afraid of what they might see if someone turns on the lights.  StereoViolet embraces the dark and the darkness of the world we live in. It's not about finding the light. It's about adjusting our eyes to see what's always been there. And that is precisely what StereoViolet forces us to do. Powered by the commanding yet melodic vocals of frontwoman Bianca B. Black, THE RISE AND FALL OF O'REN BLACK, the debut album from the Chicago-based indie-rock band, is an unapologetic admission of life and the forces that drive us. It's not a collection of love songs. They are songs of lust and life, and they tell the uncompromised story of the human journey - a journey of monsters and heroes, trials and errors, mistakes and redemption, and hope and despair. Drawing from an infinite array of personal experiences and a vast pool of musical influences and styles, StereoViolet pushes the line between music and art and fuses together the distinct sounds of each member's eclectic background to produce a powerful and unforgettable experience.  We are reminded that in the cages of our minds, we are all free. And in the solace of our freedom, we are all slaves.   From the emotionally driven and introspective lyrics that transcend the band's personality, to the jarring guitar riffs and powerful instrumentation that tell the part of the story that words cannot, StereoViolet delivers a brutally honest account of what it means to be human. Each note is a testament to life lived.  Each chord a tribute to the frailty of the human mind and spirit. Each song a crushing reminder of who we are. StereoViolet isn't a band for those looking to feel good about themselves. It's a band for those who aren't afraid to see themselves and are ready to adjust their eyes to the darkness that surrounds us all. StereoViolet is Bianca B. Black (Vocals), Armand Frigo (Guitar), Brian "Lando" Landreth (Guitar/Keys), Bryan "Gonzo" Gonzalez (Bass), and Jesus "Chuy" Zarate (Drums). StereoViolet is managed and represented by The Wrecking Co. THE RISE AND FALL OF O'REN BLACK, the band's debut full-length album, was released on April 2017

Episode 683 - Korby Lenker, Megan Slankard, and Alex Wong
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/fmDGCHMPYXM/683-korby-lenker-megan-slankard-and-alex-wong-5958
Korby Lenker, Megan Slankard, and Alex WongThese three amazing singer/songwriters stopped by CAU on their way to perform at "Space" in Evanston. That was over a year ago and the files were lost, but now found. Check out the Bio on these artists and you can see just how amazing they areKORBY LENKER: Korby Lenker is a sneaky-good songwriter. And singer. And multi-instrumentalist. An abbreviated list of Lenker's achievements so far includes: a significant amount of airplay on the legendary Seattle indie rock station KEXP; a BBC 2 interview with Bob Harris, which is only about the highest honor a rootsy singer-songwriter touring the U.K. can get; opening slots for acts ranging from Willie Nelson to Ray LaMontagne, Nickel Creek, Keith Urban, Susan Tedeschi and Tristan Prettyman; a successful run with one of the hottest young West Coast bluegrass bands of the aughts; and wins in the Merlefest folk songwriting contest as well as the Kerrville Folk Festival's elite New Folk songwriting competition. Lenker's composition "My Little Life" brought him the Kerrville honors this year. It doesn't seem possible that one song could work so well in such disparate worlds, but it also proved its powers as a galvanizing piece of indie-pop, drawing a small army of likeminded, rising Nashville artists and personalities--Jeremy Lister and Katie Herzig to name two--to make lip-syncing, ukulele-strumming cameos in Lenker's music video. MEGAN SLANKARD: "Nearly everyone who encounters this attractive and sophisticated singer-songwriter agrees that she has 'star' written all over her," says Acoustic Guitar Magazine about Megan Slankard. "She forges a distinctive sound with her smooth and courageous vocal dynamics, intelligent and diverse song styles, and sheer infectious enthusiasm." Slankard, who has sold just over 20,000 copies of her three CDs, self-produced her first CD at age eighteen and her third with help from Counting Crow's guitarist Dan Vickrey, and is currently working on a new project. Last year Slankard formed a new alt-rock band, and is already getting industry attention having been selected as a semi-finalist in Discmaker's 2007 Independent Music World Series and a finalist in the 2008 Musician's Atlas/Borders Books Independent Music Awards - even before the official release of her new band's first album, scheduled for mid-2008. Slankard and her music have appeared on TLC's "What Not To Wear", generating purchases by TV viewers after her first appearance that placed her second CD "Freaky Little Story" on the 5 spot on Amazon.com CD sales charts and on the Top-10 Rock Bestseller list on CDBaby.com. Because of the episode's popularity, the show's producers featured her in a follow-up episode, bringing her back onto the Top-10 with "Freaky Little Story". Upon its release months later, "A Little Extra Sun" also reached the Top-10 sales chart. Her songs have also earned over 175,000 plays on MySpace.com, and "Freaky Little Story" remains a Top-20 all time Rock Bestseller on CDBaby.com to this day. Slankard's music has also been featured on San Francisco AAA station KFOG's compilation CD and has been spun over 500 times on Modesto, CA. She has been featured in Rockgrl Magazine, Owl Magazine, The Synthesis, and online sources Fresh Tracks and Women In Rock, in addition to Acoustic Guitar magazine, whose editors named "Freaky Little Story" one of their top albums of 2005. She was a final selection artist for RPM Direct Presents: Unsigned Artists Volume 3 compilation CD; an A&R Online featured artist; a Song and Film Spotlight artist; and, an Acoustic Cafe featured artist on the "One to Watch" syndicated radio program (sponsored by the USA Songwriting Competition). Slankard also co-wrote and performed on the title track of Dire Straits founding member David Knopfler's new record, "Ship of Dreams". Megan has performed in over 200 cities in five different countries, including at showcases in Boston (NEMO) and Toronto (NXNE), on three tours as support for David Knopfler (Germany and England), and at the international festival InGuitar in Zurich (Switzerland). She will resume touring after the completion of the new CD. ALEX WONG: Alex Wong is a Brooklyn-based producer, writer and performer whose signature sonic style resonates in all he creates-from cinematic pop soundscapes to electronic tinged theater scores to his honest, direct songwriting. He has produced recordings with leading artists such as Delta Rae, Ari Hest, Elizabeth and the Catapult, Melissa Ferrick, Vienna Teng and Grammy nominee Ximena Sarinana. Alex has garnered critical acclaim for his songwriting collaborations with recording artists Amber Rubarth (The Paper Raincoat), Vienna Teng, Paul Freeman, Elizabeth and the Catapult and Alex Berger (Independent Music Award winner). His songwriting has been heard in film and television projects such as "The Last Song" (Disney/Touchstone), "One Tree Hill," and "The Lincoln Lawyer" (Lion's Gate). His solo project, A City On A Lake, is releasing it's debut self-titled album (featuring vocal performances from Ari Hest and Ximena Sarinana) was released in 2012.Click to view all four videos from this Podcast

Episode 682 - Kevin Presbrey March 2017
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/29gRKYgxuyQ/682-kevin-presbrey-march-2017-5905
Kevin PresbreyUkulele infused rootsy folk rock is one way of describing the vibration Kevin Presbrey is casting out there these days, but you could also very well say that his songs have a way of giving you that cozy feeling of being snuggled up by the fireplace in your favorite hooded sweatshirt. He's warm and familiar to you. Embracing the influences of storytellers Jim Croce, Don McLean, and Van Morrison along with modern troubadours Ryan Adams and James Bay, Presbrey's Midwestern sound and personality is the vehicle for the stories he lives and shares.  Since the early 2000s, KP has amassed a loyal following throughout North America thanks in part to his songs appearing on MTV, VH1, and Fox along with being afforded the opportunity to share the stage with national acts Sister Hazel, The Doobie Brothers, Rusted Root, Big Head Todd and Tonic. Turning heads in Chicago's music scene with his first solo release Dust Unto Dust, his song "Always With Me" made its way to the airwaves of WXRT radio in 2013 followed by a national television performance on WGN's morning news. Gaining steam in 2017, Presbrey's relentless lust for connecting with audiences has driven the release of his fourth studio album Falling Together. Where Dust Unto Dust (Produced by Ryan Hadlock: The Lumineers, Strumbellas, Vance Joy) centered around picking up the pieces following the sudden passing of his father in 2012, Falling Together is a reflection of his experiences as life moved forward with his father there in spirit. Recorded at Left + Right Studios in Nashville, TN with producer Skylar Wilson (Andrew Combs, Rayland Baxter, Justin Townes Earle), KP tapped into that white hot East Nashville vibe this time around in his quest to perpetuate positive feelings, togetherness, and simply finding the bright side in life. From great tragedy comes great triumph - and peace.

From birth, everything has been about music for Heather Horton. Having lived in many of the major American music epicenters, she is no stranger to the struggles and triumphs of the business. Her endeavors have been extensive, but are not free of their share of obstacles. Her 2011 release, Postcard Saturdays held promise to be the breakthrough work to set her on a course she had always desired. The proverbial puzzle pieces looked to be falling in place to gain Horton her fair share of supporters with both music-buying fans and industry critics alike. As the album poised for release, the newly wed Horton became pregnant with her daughter, Rain, and Horton was forced to rethink the release of Postcard Saturdays. While forging on with her husband, singer-songwriter Michael McDermott, in their critically acclaimed collective, The Westies, the resolve to pursue her own sincere and compelling music ultimately couldn't be tamed. That pursuit is no more evident than on her upcoming release, Don’t Mess With Mrs. Murphy.

He hasn't stopped since, and in the process he has created an imaginative and truly original body of work. Alan's songs are narrative poems set to spirited melodies, which he performs on the guitar and piano.

Ben Marshallis the latest artist to join the CAUDog Records Family. Ben came in to record a Podcast with us last Winter and one thing led to another.It has BEN a journey!!! His earliest memories of music were dancing around the house singing along to Elton John and Beatles records with his family when he was just a child. By age 11, he was drawn to the guitar and remembers bugging his parents to buy him one. After constant persistence, he received his first guitar at the early age of 13. While the neighborhood kids were out playing, he was up in his bedroom listening and trying to jam along with Jim Croce, Muddy Waters, Led Zeppelin, Boston, Eric Clapton and The Beach Boys records to name a few. "I had a record player and a bunch of vinyl records, and I would just listen and try to play along," says Marshall. He can remember that some of the neighbors thought it a bit odd that he spent so much time in his room. "I was just simply dedicated and was really bitten by the blues bug at an early age. I was completely focused on learning from the greats like BB King, Eric Clapton and Muddy Waters." The sound of blues music touched a spot deep within his soul. Along with learning by ear, he was also introduced to George Yeatmen, Sr. and studied classical guitar with him for a few years. This helped him develop technique and a unique finger style. "He was really hard on me but I am so glad I had the opportunity to study with him and learned the value of hard work and the importance of dedicating yourself to your craft." Yeatmen was a guitarist during the big band era and was a well-known musician in the Baltimore area. "He played a huge role in my early development as a musician and he is deeply missed."Click here to see all the videos from this show.

It has BEN a journey!!! His earliest memories of music were dancing around the house singing along to Elton John and Beatles records with his family when he was just a child. By age 11, he was drawn to the guitar and remembers bugging his parents to buy him one. After constant persistence, he received his first guitar at the early age of 13. While the neighborhood kids were out playing, he was up in his bedroom listening and trying to jam along with Jim Croce, Muddy Waters, Led Zeppelin, Boston, Eric Clapton and The Beach Boys records to name a few. “I had a record player and a bunch of vinyl records, and I would just listen and try to play along,” says Marshall. He can remember that some of the neighbors thought it a bit odd that he spent so much time in his room. “I was just simply dedicated and was really bitten by the blues bug at an early age. I was completely focused on learning from the greats like BB King, Eric Clapton and Muddy Waters.” The sound of blues music touched a spot deep within his soul.

Along with learning by ear, he was also introduced to George Yeatmen, Sr. and studied classical guitar with him for a few years. This helped him develop technique and a unique finger style. “He was really hard on me but I am so glad I had the opportunity to study with him and learned the value of hard work and the importance of dedicating yourself to your craft.” Yeatmen was a guitarist during the big band era and was a well-known musician in the Baltimore area. “He played a huge role in my early development as a musician and he is deeply missed.”

Episode 675 - Humphrey-McKeown
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/0T6fpi6oAGo/675-humphrey-mckeown-5682
Humphrey-McKeownHeather and Tom came on CAU as a duo back in the summer of 2006 on Episode 554This week they were back with the entire band to support their latest release "Tapestry of Shadows". As you can see and hear, we had a marvolous time recording this show. Now you can go see them perform it tonight May 20th live at Durty Nellie's in Palatine, ILThe Humphrey-McKeown songwriting partnership began in 2006 between New York native, Heather Humphrey and Chicago-based, Tom McKeown. At an informal gathering of musicians Tom asked if anyone had interest in writing music.  That day Heather said "yes" and two weeks later their collaborative partnership was formed and they were ready to see where this adventure would lead them.  Before long, they were writing for publishers in Nashville, Chicago and LA. Combining Heather's innate sense of melody with Tom's pursuit of writing something that hadn't already been done before, Humphrey-McKeown wrote for any occasion and in any style; always seeking to better themselves and their craft. When asked "How do you write better songs?" Their answer has always been "That's easy...we write another song". After penning over 100 songs for others, Humphrey-McKeown changed course to focus solely on their own unique musical voice. From their first open mic in December 2010 through the release of four studio albums in less than three years, Humphrey-McKeown has had a vision of what their writing and singing together could be. Creating the perfect vehicle to bring their songs to an audience proved to be a task that took years to complete. Drummer Jim Livas has brought the big drum sound to HM since the very first show but finding the rest of the musical puzzle pieces proved more elusive. They held auditions and swapped remaining players as needed, always looking for the perfect fit. Finally, during the last recording sessions of what has become the group's fourth album, Jim remembered a truly amazing bassist from his past. That led HM to Tony Meadors and incredibly, his audition actually became one of the final tracks on the fourth CD "All I Wanted to Hear."

Episode 671 - Robinlee Garber
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/gPhsV-6TFVg/671-robinlee-garber-5597
Robinlee GarberThe Chicago/Berwyn music scene is blessed with some of the finest Women singer/songwriters in the United States and Robinlee is a perfect example of what I am talking about. She has honed her craft and consistantly delivers great performances. This Podcast and the attendant videos from the show will prove that to all. Take a listen and go see her perform live. You will love it.Robinlee's videos from the Podcast Robinlee Garber was born in Philadelphia and spent her early years listening to and being influenced by her parents' music which predominantly featured Frank Sinatra and other singers of the Great American Songbook. In high school she became inspired by artists such as Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Jackson Browne, Rickie Lee Jones, and Elvis Costello.   As a child Robinlee always felt different as she struggled with chronic health issues but found solace in creating art and music. She studied figure drawing and glass sculpture at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, and she won a glass blowing scholarship at the Pilchuck School of Glass in Seattle after graduation. Not feeling entirely satisfied with creating her own art for art's sake, Robinlee did what she calls artist activist work, and then she ultimately got another full scholarship to earn her Masters degree in Art Therapy at University of Illinois at Chicago.   Since then Robinlee has worked professionally as a creative arts therapist and clinical counselor using music and art to help others heal. Robinlee has been a featured performer several times on WDCB's  Folk Festival with Lilli Kuzma, she is the music director of Culture Cafe for the widely popular Chicago VeganMania festival, runs a well-attended open mic in Chicago, and has also played her music across the US, Canada, Sweden and Finland. This is Robinlee's first solo album, and she is looking forward to sharing her music and her message of hope and resilience with everyone.

One-Man Band and storyteller in the Chicago area who performs upbeat, theatrical acoustic music.

“Abud: A Bard” is the tangible manifestation of James Abud’s musical research and lifelong dedication to the absurd. This bombastic and exciting One-Man show is founded on original acoustic works grounded in American folk, jazz, and theater music. It features Abud's earthy virtuosity, chummy pathos, and enormous beard.

In addition to the music, “Abud: A Bard” is filled with hilarious and sentimental tales of a life dedicated to music, family, and adventure; being on the road, in the classroom, and the glamorous life of a lifelong performer.

Episode 658 - Will Mackie-Jenkins with Emily McGinn
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/s0NRoqLynZ8/658-will-mackie-jenkins-emily-mcginn-5262
Will Mackie-Jenkins is a singer-songwriter in Chicago, IL.Will and the ever amazing Emily McGinn of Baby Shark fame came in and recorded a wonderful set of Will's music. Will's background as a degreed Poet with a book of published poetry was quite evident. The lyrics are creative, inventive, and certainly thought provoking.His debut EP Cherries in Bloom tells a narrative of departure, grieving, and seasoned love over the course of its six songs. Folk rhythms of his native Virginia are refurbished, made unique, and combined with unusual lyricism that is often simultaneously haunting and sweet. Recorded in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago during late summer/early fall of 2015, Cherries in Bloom has a curious urban sensibility to it-as if the speaker of the songs is reflecting upon a very different past life that can never be revisited, but must be made to have meaning. AcknowledgmentsAll music and lyrics for Cherries in Bloom were written and performed by Will Mackie-Jenkins. He played the guitars, the harmonica, the organ, the tambourine, and sang all the vocals on the EP. Derik Kendall performed violin on "Miss Virginia" and "The Dog's Song." Cherries in Bloom was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Rob Ruccia at Uptown Recording in Chicago, IL. Chan Arthur (carthur@saic.edu) painted the album's cover art.  Special thanks to Derik Kendall, Lora Mackie, Warren Mackie-Jenkins, the Hewitts, Emily McGinn, and Rachel Sharp for their contributions and support throughout the process.

Episode 647 - As Waters
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/kIWMf4zkWwI/647-waters-4923
Created over the course of two North American tours, "As Waters," is the artist name and self-titled debut album of guitarist and singer-songwriter Tristan Avakian. "As Waters," is a heritage record that assimilates a variety of styles, all of which pre-date Woodstock: Civil War ballad, Elizabethan lay, Revolver-era Beatles, lush orchestral pop, film noir, and tropicalia, but with a bracing post-punk sensibility instantly familiar to fans of songwriters like Josh Homme, Ben Gibbard and Billie Joe Armstrong. All the while, embodying classic story-song in the tradition of Nick Drake, Jimmy Webb, and mid-period Scott Walker. Elegant, orchestral, casually celestial. Cathartic, melodramatic, and absolutely necessary. Join the CAU crew at Acorn Theatre in Three Oaks Michigan on September 2nd to experience this brilliant songwriter. Opening the show, Gypsy-Jazz featuring Romanian born Gypsy Violinist, Daniela Bisenius and Grammy Nominated Accordionist, Don Stille.

Episode 646 - 4WithOut
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/DF5vlwdOgMY/646-4without-4913
From the Czech Republic to Chicago to the CAU Studio, by far the loudest and most exciting band to perform here. I was so mezmerized by this band I forgot to turn on my mic until about the third song. 4WithOut is a powerful and energetic female fronted Chicago based original hard rock band. Stylistically aggressive, but musically and melodically focused. Adding a twist to the mix is the  fact that the primary members hail from the Czech Republic, infusing the cultural "DNA" of  European musical heredity. Very different considering the current watered down pop-rock/metal  culture that exists these days. FINALLY something new, different and sexy! Since the bands inception in 2009 and completed formation in 2012, 4WithOut has been performing non-stop and accumulating numerous accolades from the media and peers alike. Here are just a few: Winners of Battle of the Effn Rock 2012  The Best Rock band in Chicago Independent Music Awards 2014  The winners of the Revolver Hottest Chicks in hard rock Tour 2014.  Featured musical guest on the Mancow Tv/Radio show 2014  Opening act for Lacuna Coil, Saving Abel, Sick Puppies  Featured (repeated) interviews on Rebelradio.com and Czechoslovakradio.com.  Performed for the Czech Consulate of Chicago at the Prague Rock Fest 2015.

Episode 645 - Cold Country (Sean McConnell)
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/Dh4OnC0byxw/645-cold-country-sean-mcconnell-4871
Cold Country is the ever-immersing brainchild of songwriter and audio engineer Sean McConnell. Born and raised in Phoenix, AZ, McConnell ended his would-be college career in the late-aughts to pursue music, primarily as a recording studio engineer. After booking a one-way ticket to Chicago, he quickly settled in, calling the mid-west home until a brief move to Austin, TX in the fall of 2010. It was in Austin where he began writing and performing his own songs as part of the pop duo You Are An Airplane. By spring of 2011 they had enough material to play a few unofficial SXSW showcases and a tour through the south. Soon returning to Chicago, McConnell, deciding on more personal musings, assembled a rotating line-up of friends and local Chicago musicians, calling the project Cold Country, after a term his Minnesota-born father used to refer to the mid-west. Cold Country has since self-released three EP's, a full length, a handful of bedroom recorded tapes, and completed several DIY tours around the country. 2013's "Missing the Muse" garnered excellent reviews from local and regional blogs, as did 2015's "Fall EP." McConnell has just released a new single with a video, and has begun work on another full-length for 2017.

Episode 644 - Josh Harty
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/Scj0DEUhTmA/644-josh-harty-4865
Josh Harty is a messenger. A North Dakota songsmith. A third generation musician, son of a small town police chief and preacher, he often muses that growing up he figured he'd end up going to jail or going to hell. Between the ages of five and eleven he sang gospel and country with his father at just about every Lutheran Church, Eagles Club and Senior Center in the Midwest. By age twelve Harty had made two records (cassettes) with his dad; achieving sales of 10,000 copies. After playing in several cover bands in Fargo during his teens, Harty starting his songwriting career when a local booking agent asked him if he could perform 45 minutes worth of original material for an opening gig. He said of course he could and set to work writing the songs that would become the material for his first album "Three Day Notice." After just a week of writing and rehearsing these new songs, Josh received a standing ovation and encore request from the audience while opening for BB King! His second solo project, 2008's A Long List of Lies (Magnolia Recording Co.) debuted at number eight on the European Americana chart (ahead of the latest Van Morrison album). Produced, recorded and mastered in Madison, Wisconsin's legendary Smart Studios, the album captures Harty's "clean guitar attack and a finger style that glistens with a razor's edge." (Andy Moore, Wisconsin Public Television)Come see Josh live at The Bucktown Garden Walk this Sunday afternoon, August 7, 2016 at the Club Lucky Stage, 1824 W.

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/pJybtxBjSv4/642-john-kimsey-and-twisted-roots-4841
John Kimsey and the Twisted Roots Quartet joined us for an amazing night of inspired Americana. The group features John on vocals, guitar and songwriting; Lia McCoo on vocals, flutes and percussion; Morry Fiddler on keyboards; Steve Hashimoto on bass; and Brad Newton on congas and percussion. The songs they performed in their 28-minute set are Amarantha (starting at 2:07); She Says Yes to Everything (6:08); Beat the Drum Slowly (12:01); Words for Snow (16:14); and Wide Lawns and Narrow Minds (23:29). The first, third and fifth tunes appear on Kimsey's album Traps for Troubadours: the Best of Twisted Roots, which is available in CD format from CDBaby.com; for download from CDBaby and iTunes; and for streaming on Spotify and other digital services. The remaining two tunes in the set come from the repertoire of the Art Thieves, an eclectic neo-psych band led by Kimsey which featured various members of the current group way back in the 20th century and whose albumArkanum: Selections, 1981-1993, is available from the same outlets. The Twisted Roots Ensemble first came together in 2003 to perform Kimsey's award-winning song cycle Twisted Roots: Music, Politics and the American Dream Blues, which has been described by Ben Sidran, former host of NPR's Jazz Aliveand score composer for Hoop Dreams, as "an ingenious way to integrate political and social commentary into a musical architecture," and by DePaul University chaplain Anthony Nicotera as "music to inspire the soul and charge your commitment to peace and justice."  To find out more, go to John Kimsey, musician on Facebook.

She devoted herself to her classical training for 14 years with aspirations of being a concert pianist. She received no formal vocal training, and learned to sing instead at church and in her public school choirs. Marcela was born to be a musician and she works hard to make sure music is incorporated into every things she does. When she's not performing and writing her music, she's busy collaborating with other talented Los Angeles based musicians, recording and performing as a guest/session vocalist and pianist, leading congregations as a Catholic Cantor, and providing private music instruction in both Voice and Piano to students of all ages.

I enjoy all forms of original music, but because my Father took me to many Chicago jazz clubs in my youth, I have a special place in my heart for Jazz. Take a listen to some lovely original jazz compositions, and if you can, perhaps a couple of fingers of whiskey.

Episode 636 - Andrew Tufano
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/9YznhkrwPBk/636-andrew-tufano-4525
Andrew Tufano While in Chicago on tour last summer, Andrew stopped by the CAU studio and we recorded this Podcast. It was such a wonderful session and I am certain you will enjoy the show. You will have the opportunity to see this Nashville based artist this coming Wednesday April 13th at Uncommon Ground Devon along with Chicago favorite "Baby Shark"See all the Videos hereMusically and otherwise, the opposite of harmonious isn't always dissonant. The two coexist in a sort of multidimensional continuum, defined rigidly when observed, but coalescing with changing proportions in their natural states. And so, in creating something wholesome, it's often useful to sidestep those blurred lines that we use to delineate harmony from dissonance, spontaneity from resolve, and creativity from productivity. Andrew Tufano has spent the last four years honing in on the substance behind these ossified labels through months of independent touring, hundreds of shows nationwide, and three heterogeneous EPs blending a pop acoustic sound with folk and soul roots. In an attempt to further shatter the myth that an artistic nature conflicts with an enterprising spirit, the Nashville-based artist is writing, recording, and releasing 100 songs in 100 days this winter.

Allegra Malone's debut CD is a soul stirring collection of melodic vignettes. After exploring diverse musical traditions while living abroad and traveling consistently for a decade, this album is a return to her folk and country roots as a Seattle raised, southern transplant. The music is far from modernity, while still contemporary, soul filled and relevant. Additionally, Allegra completed programs at The New School and Lee Strasberg Studio in New York City, as well as Antioch University. She has worked in theater and television, and is a published writer.March 31st, I'll be playing Emmy Lou Harris, Buck Owens tunes, and originals too with a great band. Andon Davis Trio headlines.. Be there... or Be square!

Wisconsin native, Colee James is a performing country-folk singer and songwriter living in Brooklyn, New York.   Like music makers Bob Dylan and Emmylou Harris, Colee draws inspiration from sounds of the past and thrives on telling a story through song."  The seeds of good music were planted in my soul at an early age. My childhood was vinyl. Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams, and Woody Guthrie spun all throughout my youth. I think the common ground for inspiration was their fearless attempts to showcase vulnerability with just pure honest story telling." Colee says. She hopes to keep writing and sharing her life experiences that people can relate to on a stage, and that hopefully the future kids will find desirable enough to play in those old juke boxes over and over again.  Colee James has been exploring the NYC and Brooklyn music scene for the last few years. Playing shows at Rockwood Music Hall, Bowery Electric, Pete's Candy Store, and even her own living room. She's been to Austin, Texas the last few years to play showcases at SXSW, in addition to music festival 'Mile of Music' in her home state of Wisconsin.  Colee is preparing for a busy summer of shows in the Midwest and the Northeast, She will finish the year up with a new recording adventure and hopes to release new music by the end of 2015.

Episode 630 - Tangleweed
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/aJRql5_PfeE/630-tangleweed-4386
Back last summer I had the great good fortune to catch Tangleweed at home in Chicago in between tours and got them in the studio to record this show. As you will hear and see, we had a blast recording this Podcast.See all videos from the showTangleweed is a band of three forward-looking musical reactionaries from Chicago, Illinois. While the band's instrumentation is standard bluegrass, their music is anything but. With a repertoire both broad and deep, one listener described them as sounding like "a band playing on a pirate ship off the coast of New Orleans in the 1920s". Their four CDs have garned critical praise and worldwide airplay, earning the band invitations to appear at major festivals and quality venues around the country. Tangleweed formed in the summer of 2004, with Paul Wargaski on bass, Billy Oh on fiddle, and Scott Judd on guitar.  Add'l founding members Timothy Ryan Fisher and Kenneth "Kip" Rainey also logged several years each on banjo and mandolin respectively.  Fisher left the group in 2010 after 300+ shows and three cd's, while Rainey departed in 2012 after nearly 400 shows and four cd's.The current lineup of Judd, Oh and Wargaski passed it's litmus test with flying colors in July 2012 at Louisville's "Kentucky Music Weekend", where a festival crowd of over 1,000 heartily confirmed the band's viability as an acoustic power-trio.  Since that time, the trio has aggressively developed a new sound by re-arranging early material, exploring new musical directions through fresh original compositions, and bringing Judd's guitar/vocals and Wargaski's upright bass further into the foreground.  Billy Oh's fiddle work continues to dazzle as before, and remains a key feature of the band's instrumental forays.Tangleweed Show Dates: Date City Venue Country 02/27/16 Chicago, IL Red Line Tap US Time: 9:00pm.

Scott Wilcox has wanted to be a rock star from birth. When he was three his mother said he used to make up great songs that would go on and on and on. When his father, a semi-famous disc jock in the 70's, spent his whole life always trying to reach a star that was just out of his grasp, so naturally, his mother became very nervous when Scott showed quite a bit of music potential at a young age. His mother always feared that If he pursued music, he might fail, so she liked to tell him, "Music is a hobby, don't quit your day job!".After two decades of "Day Jobs" Scott decided to follow is heart and do his best to make it in the music world. In his first year of trying, Scott produced his first CD called Love Notes, appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Lifeclass Show, won the Bob Dylan songwriting competition, and appeared on many local TV and radio interviews.He not only promoted his music but he created a music festival where he gave others a chance to showcase their music. He started a songwriters club to help show other songwriters how to do what he does, and he volunteered to play his music for students, business leaders, and soldiers.  In the brief ten minutes he got to talk with Oprah, he realized something about himself. He realized that music has never been what he does, it's who he is., and he can't deny his music any more than he can deny the blood in his veins.All that hard work paid off big time, as he just returned from New York where he performed in a television ad that will be featured on this coming Super Bowl.View all the videos

Last Summer, Carley and Mark Verbeck came into the studio and wooped up one hell of a show. We had a great time as you will see and hear.Scotch Hollow, an acoustic roots band, teams up down-home delta blues with good old-fashioned country twang and silky vocals. Just as the name implies, Scotch Hollow is as smooth as your favorite whiskey.An explosion happened at Berklee College of Music when Mark and Carley met; they discovered a musical chemistry that they couldn't walk away from. Mark's hillbilly punk-rock self grew up in the Appalachian Mountains in central Pennsylvania's; Carley grew up in Kansas City taking in the historic blues and jazz music. They briefly toured and made their home-base in Nashville when Mark came down with a devastating case of tendonitis. They relocated to Chicago while Mark recovered when alas, they could finally hit the road again!  Watch out world...they are coming for you.

Episode 621 - Glitter Rose
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/RYXTQOrjJwM/621-glitter-rose-4017
Outlaw Southern Rocker Glitter Rose has been breathing music all her life. California born and Texas raised, this Cali-Texan was exposed to rock n' roll in a small town as a kid inspiring rhythm and vigor in young GR. It became her dream to pursue music as a career at age 12 after writing her first song. Shortly after, she began recording albums, started performing live, became a guitarist and lived the music business through her teens. Spanning from country to pop to rock, GR experimented with many genres, styles and looks. Hollywood High was her rock baby born in 2001, and earned her much recognition through 2004. Life changing events led to GR focusing on her solo career and in 2007, she released her album Southern Comfort. Making waves with slice of life songs and rockin' rhythms, GR began to light up the industry, performing at North Texas festivals, hosting live music showcases, becoming a resident at the Dallas International Guitar Festival, appearing on Good Morning Texas and even designing her own acoustic guitar series, introducing her into the equipment industry and leading to performances around the world. After releasing her album Dead or Alive in 2012 and moving to Los Angeles, she was now endorsed with 12 major equipment companies, including brands like Gibson Acoustic, Orange Amplifiers, Telefunken Elektroakustik and Fishman Music and became an 8-time award winner with her album Dead or Alive, co-produced by Dran Michael and Glitter Rose, and her music video "Buda Negra" directed by Amy Campione. GR is known for her magnetic and charming stage presence.  Loved by all ages, Glitter was chosen to host and star in Southern Rock Brunch at Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood Blvd., which ran for 20 weeks.  GR retains residencies with HRC to date. She is the songwriter for the title track of the feature film American Girl and was an associate producer on the film, as well as made a cameo appearance in it. She also co-wrote a song with bass legend Stu Hamm and Korean guitar legend SeHwang Kim titled "Two Lovers", which is featured in the Korean box office smash The Technicians. GR recently was Music Director and Co-Composer for "How To: The Musical" which was a film for the 48 Hour Film Project in Los Angeles and currently finishing her 3rd album "Outlaw In Love". A Southern Rocker at heart and an Outlaw by design, Glitter Rose will go on to be one of music's most unique, and heartfelt success stories in history. Years of dedication and perseverance through hardship, heartache and challenges, makes all the great moments that much sweeter, and you can feel it in the songs she sings.Glitter Rose Videos

Episode 618 - Sarah Eide
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/4G0Zvl21EGk/618-sarah-eide-3973
New England born and raised, Sarah Eide is a Chicago based pianist/singer/songwriter, who writes and performs "piano driven alternative folk". Though new to the Chicago music scene, Sarah is no stranger to gripping an audience with her powerful voice and lyrically beautiful music. A classical piano background coupled with a love for traditional American roots music and folk has lead Sarah to writing songs that daring yet familiar. She writes lyrics that are all at once raw, smart and intimate, while wrapping them in expressive melodies and adventurous chord changes. It's within these songs that she dares question aloud spirituality, morality, relationships, societal standards, her place in the world and where the line lies between right and wrong. Having graduated from Berklee College of Music, Sarah intended to make her mark in L.A. as a film composer, and was well on her way to doing so, but by an unexpected twist of fate, found herself in the Midwest. After months of working remotely on various independent games, advertisements and films, she found herself feeling unfulfilled and yearning for more. "I came to Chicago without knowing anyone in the music scene. I had to figure out who I was as a musician and songwriter, as well as who I was as a person. Somehow that feeling of loneliness and exploring the unknown thrust me into my own self discovery and got the creative juices flowing. I'd like to think a lot of good has come from it," Sarah says, looking back. The result of this creative struggle is an arsenal of new songs accompanied by an ever expanding network of new musical relationships. Since late October 2014, Sarah (and a cast of supporting musicians) has begun playing in Chicago proper, all the while gaining new fans and garnering the attention of Chicago music's best.Video Songs from the Podcast on Vimeo

Pianist, vocalist, and songwriter Rachel Solomon has been making a name for herself since her 2005 arrival in Nashville, TN as an in-demand live and session pianist and singer as well as a unique and powerful songwriter. She released her debut solo record in January of 2013 entitled Love Ourselves, a personal exposition of love, loss, longing, and personal and spiritual growth. She describes it best as a little bit Beatles, a little bit Billy Joel (Rachel's Berklee songwriting professor penned her "The Female Billy Joel"), a little bit Carole King, a little bit Bonnie Raitt (Raitt's guitarist George Marinelli played on the record), and of course - 100% Rachel Solomon.Born a Yankee, raised a southwesterner, reared in the "Live Music Capital" that is Austin, TX, and schooled at the world-renowned Berklee College of Music, Rachel's background is as diverse as her talents are. She comes from a roving music pedigree as the daughter of Andy Solomon, keyboard player for Ted Nugent's early psychedelic endeavor The Amboy Dukes, and he passed along skills of both keyboard and saxophone to a young Rachel. Rachel spent a large portion of what should have been her rebellious teenage years winning classical piano competitions, sitting 1st chair alto saxophonist in the Texas All-State Band, and playing out with local Austin mainstay band The Alice Rose.Rachel Solomon Tour DatesWe dedicate this show to "Kitty" Solomon, RIPLosing a Family pet is so difficult.

Paul McComas' acclaimed novel UNPLUGGED tells the story of Dayna Clay, a 27-year-old rock star battling depression and post-traumatic stress in the wake of an abusive childhood.

Proceeds from our book, music, merch and ticket sales benefit the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN)'s National Sexual Assault Hotline, as well as One Mind for Research, Patrick J. Kennedy's initiative to eliminate the stigma of mental illness. Join us as we spread awareness of this vital cause!

Episode 612 - Robinlee Garber, for "Mercy"
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/ctlHmnzzWt0/612-robinlee-garber-mercy-3828
I fell in love with this lady's beautiful voice the first time I heard it. Robinlee Garber came into the studio and, as you will hear listening to this Podcast, absolutely blew me away. During the interview I was fascinated to learn about the role of the "Expressive Therapist" in a clinical setting.She is blessed with the joy of using her wonderful voice as a tool for her work. As you will read below, she helps people through trying times in their lives.Well, now she finds herself in trying times. Her sweet companion "Mercy" had to have emergency cancer surgery. Mercy has survived the surgery and now Robinlee has to deal with the costs of that decision. As you know, I lost my Buffy this year and, for her, surgery was not an option. There is a GoFundMe campaign to help with those costs. In memory of Buffy I donated and, if you can, please click on Mercy's picture and join me.Expressive Therapist Acoustic Jazz and Song Stylings of Robinlee Robinlee Garber has been providing music and expressive therapy services in hospitals, at fundraising events, festivals, conferences, schools, and in community outreach programs professionally since 1995. She is an expert at working with groups to create murals, group and individual art projects, music-making experiences, and just having a great time exploring personal and group creativity. Robinlee will perform solo and/or with other musical and artistic professionals just about anywhere, at any time, and for any occasion. These days she is singing and playing guitar weekly at various assisted living and memory care programs around the Chicagoland Area, specializing in acoustic jazz and folk music. She also plays daily at Linden Oaks Hospital, and her expressive therapy group has been dubbed "the Frank Sinatra Hootenanny" for its emphasis on music from the 20's, 30's, and 40's. Robinlee also lends her talents and support to volunteer with the not-for-profit Practice With A Purpose (a program affiliated with Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music), a group that performs music for patients, families, and residents at hospitals and nursing homes in and around Chicago.View all Robinlee Garber videos

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/LZtQD_dSV_I/611-reggie-williams-3808
Reggie Williams arrived in the CAU Studio in early October while in town for a live performance. This young man from Florida absolutely blew me away. He is a true artist. Tremendous guitarist, soungwriter, and vocalist, he is the real deal and if you have the chance to see him, do not hessitate.Reggie started playing music in Sarasota, Florida at about 16. He was quickly accepted into the local scene, and since then has played over 300 shows, developing his sound into what it is today. His music has been described as folky soul, and he really likes that. He grew up on Jazz and Soul (like George Benson, Al Jarreau, Marvin Gaye), and later on started listening to heavier music (like Coheed & Cambria, Linkin Park, and Liquid Tension Experiment). Those may seem like artists that have nothing in common, but for Reggie they represent one very important thing. An emotional connection with the listener. Be it joy, love, wanting to have a good time, regret, rage, or anything between, these artists can convey what they want. Reggie strives to be this way. In the shows that he has under his belt, Reggie found that people can feel that. Reggie has heard so many beautiful, meaningful stories from new friends he meets in the audiences of the shows he plays. Reggie is honestly trying to expose his heart to a listener as a performer, and he believes this to be of the utmost importance to people.Check out all three videos from this Podcast

The genre-bending, multi-instrumentalist songwriting duo Frances Luke Accord (Brian Powers and Nicholas Gunty)   are changing the dynamic of Chicago's folk scene one DIY venture at a time. From their debut project, the non-profit benefit record Kandote, to their house-concert/video series Fluke Takes, FLA have grounded themselves beyond any ordinary indie-folk band. Brian Powers and Nicholas Gunty came to Chicago in 2013 from another burgeoning midwest music hub, South Bend, Indiana. They currently operate the production wing of the band from their northwest-side Chicago apartment, where they've recorded and produced all their present material, as well as a growing collection of work by fellow Chicago DIYers.When Brian and Nicholas came in to record this show I became a Fan immediately. Their lyrics and harmonies are soaring and beautiful. It is impossible not to compare them to Simon and Garfunkel. They have honed their voices into this beautiful music machine. I was a 10 on the goosebump scale the entire show. We brought them in to the CAU Singing For Your Supper showcase at the Act One Pub as headliners and they absolutely killed it. Check all the videos from their Podcast

Episode 604 - Jodee Lewis
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/7F1A763WIEU/604-jodee-lewis-3606
A native of the Missouri Ozarks, Jodee Lewis was raised on folk songs and honky-tonk, and her music reflects the best of both worlds. The Chicago Tribune says she is "a singer-songwriter whose outsized talent is as big as her voice," and calls her first album, Whiskey Halo, an "impressive solo debut". Already this year, her single from the album, In The End, was chosen as the first place winner in the 16th annual Great American Songwriting Contest. Another single from the album, From A Bottle, took runner-up in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA) in the country category. Whiskey Halo has also been nominated for country album of the year in the 14th annual Independent Music Awards (IMA). Lewis trained in classical piano and began playing guitar and writing music after moving to Chicago in 1999 with her husband, Chad. Growing up in a small town, Lewis sang in her church gospel choir and with her grandfather's country band, eventually attending Washington University in St. Louis to study Chemical Engineering. After a career with companies such as Monsanto and Clorox, Lewis decided to focus on music and raising her three children. She explores the themes of loss, heartache, and ultimately, finding hope and beauty during moments of challenge. Considered a true storyteller, Lewis uses music to connect with listeners through shared emotion and honesty. The Chicago Tribune says "With her gentle twang and crystalline soprano, she invests her songs with a palpable ache that recalls country thrush Lee Ann Womack".We had a wonderful time recording this show. I am certain, like me, you will become a fan of her music.Vimeo link to Jodee Lewis' Podcast videos

Last August, from Louisville, Kentucky into the studio comes Ted Stevens. My first take was here's a Rocker dressed up and ready to take the stage. I thought, this is gonna be fun, and I was not disappointed. Ted, the leader of "Ted Stevens and the Third Rail", just had that look where if you saw him walking down the street you'd say to yourself "that guy has to be a rock star". Well, guess what, you would be right with one exception, he is not an asshole. He is one of the nicest guys I have met in ten years of recording these shows. Perhaps the 4 years he lived and played in Scotland had a positive influence on his persona, but, make no mistake; this musician is a credit to Louisville. Here he is in a stripped down solo acoustic set that kicks ass! Obviously, I love this guy! Enjoy!!!Check out all 4 videos from Ted's show on the CAU Vimeo Channel

Perhaps the 4 years he lived and played in Scotland had a positive influence on his persona, but, make no mistake; this musician is a credit to Louisville. Here he is in a stripped down solo acoustic set that kicks ass! Obviously, I love this guy! Enjoy!!!

Episode 598 - Con Pedigo
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/e3lwprNZV9A/598-con-pedigo-3523
Don Pedigo will be joining us this coming Tuesday night March 3, 2015 at the Act One Pub as our special guest for the CAU Singing For Your Supper Showcase Series. Come join us in welcoming Don to the Chciago Music Scene'Don Pedigo's latest project THE CROSS EYED SESSIONS is a musical composition reflective of the life experiences of peaks in heartfelt love and valleys in endured hardships of the everyday working man. A presentation crafted in a devotion to the art of creating a style unique, the collection of songs reveals one of the Americana movement's most honest and compelling talents. Born in Freetown, IN, Pedigo's mid-western charm is matched by his ability to capture a listening audience with handcrafted lyrics, expressive vocals and Chet-like pickin'. With the will and work ethic of a Heartlander, Pedigo's passion led him to the heart of Music City where life as a recording artist, songwriter, musician, husband, father and friend shaped a sonic chapter of Pedigo's life called THE CROSS EYED SESSIONS. Mastered by five-time Grammy Award winning producer Ray Kennedy, the project captures the authentic and organic recording process within each song. Arriving in Nashville, he caught the ear of legendary songwriter Earl Bud Lee ("Friends In Low Places"/Garth Brooks, "Who Are You When I'm Not Looking"/Blake Shelton) who nurtured Pedigo's inherent song-crafting ability. In 2006, Pedigo recorded his first full-production record WHAT I WAS RUNNING FROM (featuring Buddy Miller on guitar) and released the single "Mama's Wedding Gown" (produced by Larry Crane) the following year. The complementary music video qualified the tune as a finalist on the CMT Music City Madness Singer/Songwriter's Competition Top 20 Video Countdown dubbing Pedigo as "the hard-rocking heartthrob from the heartland."

Episode 597 - Samantha Harlow
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/chicagoacousticmusic/~3/HGWRFwqawIs/597-samantha-harlow-3515
With nearly a decade behind a Nashville honky tonk bar and countless nights playing solo shows on the road under her belt, Samantha Harlow has plenty of stories to tell. A true raconteur, Harlow's storytelling is marked by mild exaggerations, tongue-in-cheek declarations, and sweeping truths about being a strong woman making her way in the world. Backed by a steel guitar and twangy riffs, Harlow shares tales of heartbreaks past and present - and, more importantly, her resolve to move past them. She's a country artist, to be sure, but not in the folksy, teary-eyed connotation of the title. Fueled by strong and pragmatic Midwestern roots, Harlow's lyrics are equal parts heartbreak and pulling oneself up by the straps on a pair of boots. Previous albums (Boxcars and Other Obsolete Dreams, Love Letters) have detailed her childhood memories of broken family bonds and lofty dreams torn down by the reality of divorce and blue-collar woes. But on her latest cut (Give and Take), Harlow turns over a new leaf - both lyrically and musically. With a faster tempo driven by an electric guitar, songs like 'Kerosene' and 'The Way It Goes' are more about moving on from disappointment than they are about heartbreak itself. Inspired by spending several months on the road in 2012 and 2013, Harlow isn't dwelling on broken dreams any longer. On Give and Take, the country singer has started dreaming up new goals and moving forward one step at a time.All of the videos of the songs from this Podcast are on CAU's Vimeo Channel

All four songs they performed were perfect examples of writing songs with "hooks" Enjoy this show.Modern Daybreak, formerly called Chelusier, began in May of 2016 when Justin was introduced to Omar via a mutual friend. The two stayed together and kept writing music while searching for a bass player. In February of 2017, Matt joined the team as the bass player. Since then, the band became a second family for its members. They have performed in many local Chicago venues and released its full album Leo in late 2018. In August 2019, the band changed their name to Modern Daybreak. Their first release "Headspace" and its music video set a new tone for the future of the band.

Rosalba Valdez is a Mexican-American musician bred in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago. From the age of five, Rosalba would take guitar classes anywhere and everywhere they were offered in her community. "Rosie" would eventually find a home at Lincoln United Methodist Church, led by activists/pastors Emma Lozano and Walter Coleman. Regularly playing for Sunday services and community events lead her to grow up in an environment of activism and community engagement/organizing all while finding her music had as much place in the struggle as it did anywhere else. Rosie learned that she could speak out about the injustices in her community and stay true to her identity all while pursuing her passion. The name of her debut EP, "Yo Soy Mexicana," comes from the immense pride Rosalba has for being of Mexican descent and being first generation, Mexican-American born of immigrant parents. In today's political climate Rosalba believes it is important to not only be vocal but active in the community. Rosalba is proud of her culture and heritage and seeks to preserve and honor it with her music. Click here to view all the Videos from Rosalba's Podcast Be sure to check out Rosalba's amazing music video filmed in Cuba

Conrad Merced is a singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer based out of Chicago, IL. Being raised in a musical family, he started playing in music groups at the age of 13. He was the former front man for the indie rock band The Red Jacket, and the shoegaze, electronic duo Shoplifter. His music has been featured in films, podcasts and in various music compilations. At the age of 25, Conrad abruptly stopped writing and playing music.Tender BeatsFollowing the unexpected death of his mother, Conrad picked up his guitar after a ten year hiatus and began writing songs for the album "Tender Beats." This lush collection of songs feature catchy finger-style acoustic guitar backed behind atmospheric, digital textures and drum machines to create a unique blend of ambient electronic-folk.Conrad teamed up with engineer Rick Riggs at Handwritten Recording Studio to help shape and bring to life his wall of sound. The album could have easily stood alone as a folk album but with the composition of orchestral instruments, vintage synthesizers and electronic drum machines, the album bends genres without compromising its melody and thoughtful lyrics. Conrad's songs have been described as "Nick Drake meets Roxy Music" and "Elliott Smith meets Radiohead."The themes of the album touch on dealing with the loss and death of a loved one, reflections on aging, overcoming writer's block, breaking up, falling in love, and a nostalgia piece about growing up in the 90's to immigrant parents. Click here to view the videos from this Podcast

The duo released We'll Be Fine, their debut studio effort, on February 9th, 2018. Recorded by Matt Wright (Turnpike Troubadours) at the famed Prairie Sun Studios in Northern California, it blends together a seamless mix of classic country, western swing, and traditional southern folk. The album has been called a "deft and well crafted collection of songs... which would rather underplay their musical hand in favor of a softening soulfulness and delicacy."
