Show #177: Eric Pedigo

I've been at this for almost nine years.  I take or have been awarded partial credit for encouraging and/or helping to unleash a few cool things on the scene during this time.  Coy Koi, Swig, Black Market Binary, Megan Hopkins ... probably even more that never got legs ... and I will admit quite a few things have become inexplicably popular despite my initial read.  But, dammit, you have to give me Eric Pedigo, this skinny little kid that showed up at an open mic one night with a batch of really cool-assed songs and solid voice to back them up.  For some reason he had this ambition to play Birdy's ... which is ONE thing I can usually do for an artist ... so I had him play in the background while bands were signing up for the Battle back in 2013.  Next thing I know, our buddy Cannon has convinced him to sign up for the battle, and a few weeks later, he becomes one of the first singer/songwriters to advance to the second round, despite having brought only having two fans in the audience at the beginning of the night.

Since that time, Eric has become a staple of the singer/songwriter scene around town, playing several shows for Shine, collaborating with Steve Boller (Godfather of the Castleton music scene) on one of the better releases of the past year (thank you, again, Shine Studios), releasing what Ryan Brewer begrudgingly says is one of the best songs written by a local artist, and reaching the finals of Birdy's One Guitar/One Voice competition.  This is an impressive resume for his first 18 months in town, I would say.  This episode marks Eric's second appearance on Indy In-Tune and includes all-new live performances that he probably only vaguely remembers playing the first time.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
