  • Ozomotli this Friday

    ozo_tour._300sq.jpgWho would have believed in 1995 that almost 20 years later, not only would the Latino fusion band Ozomotli still be kicking it, but that the music world would have almost caught up with them, as we saw at the opening of the Grammys last week?  Latino and Latin and Latino fusion music are now universally popular, and Ozo helped move that revolution and are on top of its wave.

  • NO SHOW THIS WEEK. WE ARE AT namm

    We will be attending NAMM, music's biggest convention, which takes over the Anaheim Convention Center Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  Broadcasting from NAMM is very difficult (we did it badly one year and decided to skip it from now on) so no show this Friday.  But you can always download shows s podcast from iTunes or from www.blogtalkradio.com/musicfriday.

    We will be posting stories, photos and videos from NAMM every day here and on Music Junkie, IndiePulseMusic, Making the Scene  online magazines, so you can see what all the excitment is about.

  • Matia Gabriel. Amazing music this Friday

    matias_pink_guitar_300.jpgI first saw Matias at a Sin Color concert.  He was opening for the Sin Colorquestra and I was mesmerized by his guitar virtuoso and his range of playing.  So glad to have him on the program.

  • Lisa Bouchelle, new songs Friday

    lisa_b_guitar_case._300.jpgLisa Bouchelle is one of those rare artists that can bring you to tears one moment, and have you laughing out loud the next. Whether performing solo with just an acoustic guitar or backed by her band, her shows always leave the audience coming back for more, which is why she averages over 200 shows a year. Lisa's latest EP, Lipstick Tomboy, is closing in on two million streams on Spotify, and the first single, a playful duet with John Popper called "Only The Tequila Talkin'," is over 1 million streams. It was awarded the “Disc Of The Day” by legendary tastemaker Robert Oermann at MusicRow, was “Highly Recommended” by Goldmine Magazine, was a Top 20 Download on the Daily Play MPE Chart, and a Top Ten pick on the Taxi A&R Service.
