ICYMI - Earlier today we premiered a new video from Nashville-based duo Anana Kaye for their song, "Blueberry Fireworks".  It is a gorgeous short film - if you haven't seen it yet, you can check it out HERE.

Meanwhile, it is the end of another work week- finally - and we have our final shuffle of the year.

E2TG Video Premiere: Anana Kaye - "Blueberry Fireworks"

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

Today, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to premiere the brand new video from one of the hottest duos in Nashville right now. Anana Kaye and Irakli Gabriel are Anana Kaye (the band). The pair are originally from Georgia (the country not the state just to the south of Tennessee).

Over the last several months, the two have taken Nashville's music community by storm. They have that  rare combination of talent and personality.

The video is a work of art and it stars the amazingly talented Rosemary Fossee.  Now, you can check it out here and only here at E2TG!

Trending Thursday Morning Shuffle - Another Way Mix

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

Any show that starts with a former E2TG Artist of the Year followed by the reigning E2TG Band of the Year - sure has something going for it.  I ended up at The 5 Spot (I know! It's shocking!) for the late show last night. Darrin Bradbury kicked things off. It was one of his best solo sets (that I have seen). Many of his newest songs are emotionally powerful - continuing to walk that line of humor and brutal honestly (brutal but delivered with heart and charm).  The Big Dumb were up next, and I continue to be blown away by this band. In my view they somehow manage to be a tight unit while still be incredibly loose.  They are all multi-talented artists, and something magical happens when they come together.  Chicago band Half Gringa were next. This was my first time seeing them, and I was very impressed.  I really dug their set.  Ryan Sobb closed the night with a full-band set. It was my first time seeing Sobb with a band, and it was great hearing his wonderful songs - fleshed out. It was a high energy rocking set of music.

Whew!  We have to get going!  It's Thursday - time to head back to the Trending playlist. Interestingly, this same playlist on Tuesday brought up a mix that was heavily weighted toward experimental and/or noisy music. Today, we get more roots, singer-songwriter type songs. It's all good. Let's go!

Well, I picked the subtitle for this shuffle from the INXS song in the mix, but it sure is appropriate!

Let's just jump right in! It's Wednesday - time to get WILD.

Man, it is already past the middle of March.  The first quarter of 2019 is almost over. I think this year, I am going to create quarterly playlists of featured music instead of monthly like last year. 

I rather spontaneously signed up to read at an all day poetry event on Wednesday.  Details HERE.

Time to get onto our Shuffle!  We have a ton of new music - and some still waiting for me to add to my playlist.  Let's go!
