Show #152: Kiefer Jones and David Lee

It's Always a treat to introduce new talent to the audience at large, and we've done a lot of it here.  Some of these names have gone on to make waves, some of them disappeared shortly after appearing on Indy In-Tune.  I don't take any credit for either of those.  Kiefer and David from this week's show have a really neat sound to them, which I would be tempted to generalize as John Mayer meets Eminem, except that this would also show how, while I consider myself on a expert in the music of the seven-county area, I know almost nothing about current music outside of Indianapolis.  In fact, have I ever even heard a John Mayer album?  Or am I only familiar with his music from people covering it on open mic night?

That said, I really do like what these guys are putting out.  Good, solid songwriting and lyrics, with a bit of edginess.  If we can get some production behind them (come on Azmyth), then I think they might be on to something, assuming they can find a venue to call home.  The other problem with doing something just a bit different is that you tend to be real lonely.

Links referenced in the show:
  • Kiefer Jones and David Lee can be found here:  Facebook | YouTube
  • In the co-host slot is Irish from the Sound Check with Irish, Tuesdays from 8 to midnight on Indy In-Tune Radio.

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.
