Show #025: Josh Holmes

This is the fifth of seven shows recorded on September 15th at the Kammy's Kause benefit and features Northwest Indiana singer/songwriter/musician Josh Holmes. Along with being the infamous triple threat (possibly quadruple -- I don't know for sure if he dances or not), Josh has some innovative, interesting ideas concerning grass-roots marketing tactics. These are so innovative, in fact, that he's actually gotten radio exposure in serveral out of state markets across the country -- including charting in Hawaii and being featured on national television.

I must admit, one-on-one interviews like this always make me nervous. With a full band, I can generally sit back, say very little, and let the guests play off of each other. Single guests, on the other hand, require a great deal of research, preparation, and planning to determine what topics and questions are going to be most interesting to the audience as well as the interviewee. Fortunately, Josh is a very easy interview who displays a great deal of natural wit, intelligence, and charm as he talks us through four excellent tracks from his last two releases.

Important links from the show.

  • Josh Holmes can be found on the Internet here: Web site / MySpace
  • His last two CD releases, A Table 4 One and 2nd Generation Loss can be purchased directly from his web store.
  • During the natural course of the conversation, Josh and I discovered that we were both students of Professor Glenn Gass when we attended I.U., and we both wholeheartedly recommend his various courses in the History of Rock and Roll.
  • Speaking of rock history, Josh recently played his dream gig at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, IA.
  • Our Kammy's Kause segment for this episode features a meet and greet with the show's MC, Mike Potempa
  • And as with all of these seven shows, we need to thank the following people:

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.
