Spotlight on Emerging Indie Artists
I would like to introduce a new feature for Blue Muse Views and Reviews Blog and Blue Muse Independent Voice Podcast called Spotlight on Emerging Indie Artists. There will be a regular half hour podcast feature with a compilation of brief reviews for 3 new indie artists. However, Volume 1 will be an extended one hour version of the podcast recognizing 6 new indie artists. While these artists are members of BlueMusePublishing.com, they are not signed with Blue Muse Publishing, Inc. and are under no obligation whatsoever. Also, I am not paid for my reviews or endorsements.
As indicated, each written feature will be accompanied by an associated podcast by the same title on Blue Muse
Independent Voice. Each podcast will include the comments from the written review plus it will feature the actual songs referenced.
Although this initial feature covers six groups that caught my attention, there were many more who could have been easily included if I were not constrained by time and space. Hopefully, I will be able to keep up with the very nice talent at BlueMusePublishing.com.
First of all, Jason Davis is very solidly in the Americana genre with a variety of very well written songs. The production quality on his recordings is excellent. I especially like the songs Wonderin and When We Were Happy.
Wonderin is very original, yet I get a Counting
Crows, Van Morrison and Jackson Browne vibe from the song. The structure and lyrics, as well as Jason's voice, are all great.
When We Were Happy is a slower tempo song that is again very original, but if Wilco had Leon Russell for a lead singer, this would be the perfect song for them. I hope you will listen to Jason's
other songs entitled Nashville, CA and Skeleton Key.
