Featured Friday Morning Shuffle – Trios Mix

I’ve seen some stories in the news recently about the incredible and awful concentration of media ownership.  The sad truth in graphic form (via FrugalDad.com) is at the end of this post:

Nashville is fortunate to have a great independent radio station that supports local music and plays songs you just don’t hear anywhere else.  Well, today is 6/15 or 615 which happens to be the area code of Nashville. So all day, from 6:15a.m. to 6:15p.m. they are playing nothing but music from the 615.  Grant it, they have a pretty incredible list of artists to choose from:  John Hiatt, Black Keys, Jack White, Pujol, JEFF the Brotherhood, Lambchop, Steve Winwood and Donna Summer by my estimation would all be eligible for inclusion. Plus too many others to name.

Anyway, I may post a 615 video collage/montage whatever later, and I would do a 615 shuffle, but it is featured Friday so here we go:

First up, Upstate New Yorkers, Skeleton in the Piano are up with the lead song from their 2011 album Stranger on a Damned StaircaseThe Old Hound Dog is an excellent jumping off point if you are just discovering this band.  

Next up we have a Washington, DC band with ties to the 615.  The Riverbreak’s Lead Singer and Guitarist Ryan Bailey hails from the area. Strangers on a Hot Night offers a sultry sensuality along with an expansiveness that still allows us, the listeners, to feel as if we are right there in Malcolm X Park watching the scene unfold.  It is also the lead off track from the band’s album Get You Right.
(Couldn’t locate a video for Strangers on a Hot Night 
so here is Bolin Creek another track off the Get You Right album)

And finally, more stuff from New Jersey’s bluesy rock singer Jo Wymer.  We’ve been playing the hell out of her Living With Scars album, and she belts in legend-worthy style on Dirty Secrets.
