Mixing multiple sound sources and infinite music genres with spoken word, movie dialogue, etc... overlapping, reversing...whatever, to create something unique for the moment, never to be performed the same way again...(?)

Show info posted by the Host: Scott Seskind - Singer + Songwriter ... more
Scott Seskind has been a social worker in Boulder, Colorado for over thirty years. Some of the residents of the care home where he’s worked for the last decade have been there for as long as he has; many with mental health issues and most with little money and only basic government insurance. His songs often touch upon a sense of marginalisation and vulnerability- the banal and the heart-breaking.
Scott Seskind self-released two records, his self-titled debut in ’85, and ‘Chance’ in ‘91, recorded at home on a 4-track
Both records are careful collections of precise and observant songwriting; some reflective with a melancholic calm, whilst others ring with a punk desire that feels transcendent of the time and place it came from. As relevant now as it was then.
He would often perform in front of his projected photographs; mostly portraiture of strangers, a directness of gaze that runs parallel to his music.

Showcase of members of Boulder's Coaltion of Women Songwriters
~ Laura Marielle is a singer-songwriter based in Boulder, Colorado. Coming from classical roots, she writes indie folk pop and loves covering other artists who speak to her. Emotive tales expressed through soaring vocals, her music lays it all on the table.
~ Valerie Bhat is a modern-day Janis Joplin with a bluesy rock sound dipped in country hues. Drawing influences from Bob Dylan, R.E.M., Bonnie Raitt, & Amanda Palmer, Bhat commands the stage with her deep powerhouse of a voice that distinguishes her from the typical singer-songwriter sound. Her custom-built effects pedals, varied guitar techniques, unique interpretations of cover songs, and thoughtfully observant lyrics will leave you wanting more when she plays her final notes.
~ Riley Ann defies the expectations of a female folk musician. As a one-woman band, she conveys the energy and dynamic sound of a full band, towing the line of grit and refinement through her music. Elements of The Black Keys, Neko Case, and Hozier are blended with a modern take on old time, creating a sound that's truly her own. As stated by one of her musical colleagues, "She'd charge hell with a bucket of water." She is currently performing with The Catcalls, a blues rock band in the Front Range.
