 The Night Before Fathers Day (putting it together)
washtub writes

"The Night Before Fathers Day" will be an acoustic celebration featuring local Fathers and their children performing songs for the sake of mothers with cameras creating memories. FREE admission for all on Saturday June 20 2009. So far I have 2 coffee houses locked in.

The Plymouth Coffee Bean in Plymouth MI from 8 to 11pm and Solid Grounds Coffee House in Northville MI from 6 to 9pm. Instantly I've received a dozen requests from fathers that want to participate. I didn't even advertize yet. This might be an interesting focus on a healthy Metro Detroit scene that is rarely seen. The Detroit area has a rich musical heritage of all styles. Acoustic music is spread throughout our Blues, Jazz, Rock, Country, Gospel, R&B, Hip Hop, Motown, Reggae, Dance, Metal, Punk, Rap, Polka, Eastern, Ethnic, ect… every single guitar player no matter what style occasionally plays an acoustic-something for self enjoyment. And many fathers simply play guitar yet have never performed on a stage for an audience.

 New Disoriented Acoustic Pop from Melvyn Bernard
melvynbernard writes

Melvyn BernardEclectic, brooding, manic, lyrically-flooded, melodic, sleepy, and occupying his own little world (to which you are welcomed).

The debut release from Melvyn Bernard, The Life You Thought You'd Have, was written, recorded, and mixed in two weeks for rpmchallenge.com, solely with many tweaked layers of acoustic guitar and vocals (the remix doesn't count). Future output will most likely have more. Or less.

All songs are streaming and for free download at alonetone.com.

Even fewer songs can be heard at the Myspace page.

 Radio Free Michigan No Longer Broadcasting

It would appear that Radio Free Michigan is no longer broadcasting. I've checked the site several times over the past couple of weeks and the stream is unavailable. I've received no response from an email sent to them through the contact form on their website which is still active, but the playlist on their site has not been updated.

Hopefully this is only a temporary interruption in service. The station focused exclusively on Michigan Indie music and was a great promotional tool for independent artists from this state

The owners of Radio Free Michigan have not posted any information regarding the interruption of broadcast on their website so any speculation as to the cause would be just that; speculation. We can only hope that they can resume broadcast in the near future.

Michigan Bands ran an article on Radio Free Michigan back in January giving kudos to the new Internet radio station. We will keep you posted if we hear anything.

 Could donations finance your next album? It worked for Jill Sobule.

Jill Sobule asked her fans for help in financing her new album. Jill’s approach successfully raised all of the money she needed for the project through donations. There are lessons to be learned that could help finance your next project. Read on ...

Jill SobuleI was listening to Marketplace, a financial show, on Michigan Radio earlier this week and they did a feature on Jill Sobule.

Jill has had significant success over the years. Don Henley asked her to open for him on one of his solo tours. Her albums have been produced by notables such as Todd Rundgren and Joe Jackson. Over her career she has released 7 albums with multiple labels (MCA, Atlantic, Artemis, Apple - The Beatles not the computer) and her songs have been included in numerous movies including Clueless (1995) and Mystery Men (1999).

Jill's most recent label, Artemis Records, folded leaving her in the position of finding another one. The record industry as a whole has been dealing with slumping sales for quite a while and the present state of the economy has only made things worse. Many labels are facing tough times and some are going under. That left her with few options. If she was going to continue making records she would have to take matters in her own hands.

 Check out Ann Delisi's Essential Music on WDET

Hey Folks, 

    I just wanted to let you know if you didn't already that Ann Delisi has a weekend show on WDET (101.9 FM) called "Essential Music" which features local Detroit area music every hour.  It airs Saturday and Sunday from noon until 4:00 pm.  You can also submit music for her show's theme until March 22nd.  Details can be found at the website (http://www.wdetfm.org/ann-delisi.php).  Check it out and make a small donation while you're at it, ok.  Let them know the local music community supports this move. 

It's about time local music got some serious air time, eh? 

Take care of yourselves,

Mitch
