One of the many things I love about the internet is you'll never know what you'll find around the bend.
Case in point Scott Andrew.
Found Scott's site thru Derek Powazek's photoblog site...I've linked to Derek (and his wife Heather) on my sidebar.
Anyway, was still going thru my post-election funk-meltdown-depression...whatever you want to call it...and was looking for some music to cheer me up. Went to Scott's site and downloaded several of his songs...really liked what I heard...and today I got his CD 'Where I've Been' in the mail. A musician AND a blogger...ya gotta love that combination!
According to my iTunes description, Scott is classified as 'folk'. Not sure I'd describe his music as folk...more like really really good rock that's well-written and firmly wedges itself inside your brain....much like 'Cast The Net Wide' has done.
I have a special place in my heart for Indie Musicians. My nephew Tom has a San Diego-based band that's definitely a labor of love. My buddy Mike is in his 3rd band in the 6 years I've known him. It takes guts to write and produce music that you love and comes from the heart...also takes guts to follow your dream of sharing your music with everyone else, full well knowing you may not ever make it big and that's ok, as long as you can make the music you want it makes life worth living.
So support Scott, support the other Indie Musicians you know and love, and stay tuned for more suggestions in the coming weeks.
