Friday Morning Music Shuffle - Crazy Flipper Fingers Mix




Be sure to "Like" Ear to the Ground on Facebook!

First off, I witnessed a great night of music at The 5 Spot last night. Jon Latham, Allen Thompson, Zach Schmidt, Tim Easton, and Darrin Bradbury - powerhouse stuff there!  As a bonus, I get to stick around and see long-time Ear to the Ground favorites Year of October as part of the late show line-up.  I am really proud of how they have grown musically in the past few years since I first heard them.

Also, my review of the Wednesday Night Bobby Memphis Benefit show is currently (at press time) on the front page of No Depression, and although, I can admit that I always happy when something I wrote gets featured like that, what I really hope is that it leads some people to helping out a man who I do not know and did not know of, but who is obviously respected and loved by a large number of people.  You can read the review here.

Thursday Morning Music Shuffle - Beautiful Bones Mix



Be sure to "Like" Ear to the Ground on Facebook!

Another great night of music in Nashville - both the shows I saw and those I wasn't able to see (can only be in one place at a time!).  What I saw:  Lindsay Ellyn had her EP release show at Two Old Hippies in the Gulch, and once again demonstrated why I have been so impressed with her music since I met her last fall.  It's a simple formula that not too many can or will follow.  Start with great songs, surround yourself with top-notch talent, treat others kindly, and work hard. Her EP Out of Road is out and available at the usual places, and it comes highly recommended by #E2TG.

After Lindsay's show, I hopped over to 3rd and Lindsley for the Bobby Memphis Benefit show. It was a great night for a great cause, and I finally got to see the Human Radio live and her both their classics and some awesome new songs.  (Read my Review on No Depression). To donate to the Bobby Memphis fund - visit the Go Fund Me page.

 Human Radio reformed at the end of 2014 and they are in the midst of a Kickstarter Campaign for a new album and tour

Whew!  Btw, another great night of music on tap for tonight!  Shuffle did you say?

Ever wonder what would happen if you created a playlist with a wide variety of music from different genres and different eras and then hit shuffle and wrote about the 8-12 songs that came up randomly during your morning commute?   Well, wonder no more, here at Ear to the Ground, we do this just about every week day and an occasional Saturday or Sunday if I am bored...  In fact, we did it today.... here's what happened:

So, I find myself short on time, so I have to speed through this. I hope you find time to dig deeper.  I could not find the exact track for all the songs for the Video Playlist, so you my have to do some internet searches.  Some great stuff, and well worth the effort.
