Hello Music Lovers!
It occurred to me that I haven’t sent one email out in 2013…I promise
I have not forgotten about you! So, let’s catch up a little…
I released an album in the spring called "Key to My Cage" you can stream/buy
it here: www.michaelkirkpatrick.bandcamp.com
. In support
of my new record, I performed at SxSW in Austin, TX, The Bluebird Café in
Nashville, TN, my favorite Cascadia venue: The Black Dog Theater in Snoqualmie,
WA, and here in northern Colorado at The Bellvue Bean, all to beautiful, enthusiastic
audiences. I appreciate the support you have given me, I would be NOTHING
without my loving audience!
While in Nashville, I got a chance to write with one of my Guitar Hero’s and
good friend: Stephen Mougin of Dark Shadow Recording and the Sam Bush Band.
I attended my second Planet Bluegrass Song School in Lyons, CO last month where
I put the finishing touches on some new tunes and collaborated with some fellow
song-smiths from around the country. Co-writing is a new passion of mine,
listen for these new compositions in my live show and perhaps on the next record.
The good people of my hometown, Fort Collins, CO, voted me “Best Singer-Songwriter”
at the FoCoMX peer awards in April. In June I received an “Honorable
Mention” at the Telluride Troubadour competition, out of 500+ songwriters
nation-wide. In August I was ranked #4 most played Colorado artist on 88.9
KRFC and ReverbNation has ranked me #1 on the charts for Singer-Songwriters in Northern
Colorado. Brag, Brag, Brag!
Some of you have had the pleasure of catching my band The Holler! here in Colorado
this summer. We have been playing to some incredibly packed houses and enjoying
great moments with our new drummer: Peter Knudson. Check out my show schedule
below for Solo performances as well as The Holler!, including our mini-tour to Minnesota
I have decided to book more House Concerts as they are better experiences for me
and the audience…socially, sound-wise and the fun factor. I would love
your help in referring me to house concerts around the country. Also, if you
have never hosted a House Concert and would like to try one out with me, please
contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
we can work out the details for a great show in your living room or backyard.
I’ll be in Tennessee in October, the West Coast in November and the Rocky
Mountains in December.
Peace and Love through Music!
