Show #012: Jenn Cristy

Yes, please do not panic because I've managed to put out an unprecedented two shows in a row. There are still eight more to go before I'm allowed to lose steam. The fact is, I had to start editing up these things because, owing to the size of a raw audio file and the fact that I back each one up in triplicate, I've managed to fill up just about every hard drive I've got, and quite frankly, can't install "Tiberium Wars" until I get rid of some of these things.

This week's guest, Jenn Cristy, is a talented multi-instrumentalist as well as a fantastic singer/songwriter. Many of you will remember her from her appearance on "that Mellencamp guy's" grammy-nominated album, "Cuttin' Heads," as well as it's subsequent international tour. (John, however, is from Seymour, which has been ruled to be outside of the metro area, thus he doesn't qualify to be on "Indianapolis" In-Tune.) Frankly, when I drove down to Bloomington to meet Jenn (Bloomington, by the way, does count -- my show; my rules), I didn't know quite what to expect, but I'm now happy to report that she definitely lives up to her motto: "A lit'l less diva ... a lit'l more rock." As the interview shows, she is in fact, a warm, funny, and very genuine person who I really can't say enough nice things about. So, I suppose I'll just let this week's show speak for itself.

As an aside, before I catch flak from the Amy Fishburn fans in the audience, yes, I do refer to Jenn as "our first female guest." Amy's interview was, in fact, recorded a couple weeks after this one, even though it was released first. So I suppose we'll put an asterisk in the record book next to that particular piece of trivia.

Links referenced in the show:

  • Jenn Cristy can be found here: Web Site / MySpace.
  • Her latest CD, also entitled Jenn Cristy, is available from CD Baby as well as her online store. (Hint: It's cheaper at her own store.)
  • I neglected to mention it during the show, but Jenn also donated a copy of her CD to our cause. You can enter to win it by filling out our contest form.
  • I also neglected to remind you that you still have a few weeks to enter to win CD's from Vilafishburn and Great Scott! It's all part of our quest to find inexpensive ways to increase the quality of your CD collections.
  • Since recording her interview for this podcast, Jenn has sort of moved up in the world and done interviews more-mainstream publications as well. You can catch her performances as part of the Indy Star's "Off the Record" with Dave Lindquist as well as a video performance of the song "You" on "The Weekly Special."
  • And finally, you can obtain more information about Jenn's favorite charity, Kammy's Kause here and here.

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.
