January 1, 2010 (New Year’s Day) was the “Hangover Helper” Show at The Toad Tavern in Littleton, so Andy & the boys whooped up a set of boozy songs from Bob Dylan, The Kinks, Billy Joel and more. They’re on the Andy Ard Music playlist over at YouTube.com:
Andy just recorded a 4-song set with Jake Schroeder at Denver’s 99.5 The Mountain for the Monday, January 26 Mountain Homegrown show. Listeners outside the Denver metro area may listen online at http://www.995themountain.com.
They shot the breeze for a while, mostly about music. Andy’s busy working on new songs for his forthcoming CD, “Bad Girls (and the Boys Who Love Them)”, so he played acoustic versions of a couple of those songs.
In addition, he revisited some older material including his version of a song he co-wrote with Victoria Woodworth and an old gem from the rachel & andy days.
Astute observers will note that the picture displays “Alice 105.9”. This is not a camera trick; the two radio stations share the same studio.
Andy spent the past weekend in Alamosa recording with Eric Shiveley at Desert Air Studios, and he put together a video postcard of that trip. This is one of the songs they worked on, “Wonderful.” (link to YouTube page: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwhpoIWnJlA)
Andy makes a brief appearance (as we’ve mentioned a time or two) in Eric Shiveley’s documentary about being an indepedent musician that’s in the Jackson Hole Film Festival (June 5-9). Andy wants to help Eric get better gigs and more publicity, and it would be fun to generate interest in all the great Colorado music from the film. If you or someone you know is an industry bigwig, please let them in on this.
Just watch the clips and forward them to friends. Everything else takes care of itself!
