Interspersed between all of the quality live Prince, Bruce, Clash, Joe Ely, etc. etc. that I’ve been listening to lately, I’ve come across some fine little nuggets courtesy of emails from the artists themselves.
Aaron Schroeder, a talented songwriter, guitar-man, and vocalist from Kennewick, Washington, put together his own CD, Southern Heart in Western Skin, and he’s only 22 damn years old (yeah, I’m starting to get cranky and bitter).
One track that most certainly caught my ear is “Rollin’ Tennessee.” It’s got that driving beat fueled by acoustic guitar and piano. It’s got a good theme: pleading for your baby to join you on that movin’ train. I’m a sucker for those.
Rollin’ Tennessee (mp3)
You can support a young, independent, and very talented musician by going to his MySpace page and picking up this CD for $7.00.
GASP! Speaking of MySpace… I – uh – now have a MySpace page. I thought it would be cool to network with some of the cool up and coming musicians (and fellow bloggers) out there. As of now, I have no friends! MySpace hurts my ego…. SLAM! So if you’re a MySpacer, hit me up, or send me an Add, or whatever the kids are saying these days.
