This week marks a real treat for Studio B. Fresh off the heels of our first Podcast Concert, we are slowly building a library of exclusive live tracks, soon to be showcased on Indy In-Tune Radio -- most-likely on a little program I've been dying to do for years now called "Monday Night Live." Let's face it, there's very little live music going on on Mondays in this town, so I think I'm justified in carving a little niche out for myself. I just hope I can get a crash course in music recording and figure out how to produce an end product worthy of the artists that are contributing their talents to this experiment.
With a ra(u)gged voice, like a grizzly bear, this week's guest, Cootie Crabtree is another one of those I look forward to getting together with every couple of years. Now making his third appearance in support of his latest release, "Blues for the Muse," we talk a bit about the "core" of Coot's music and the qualities he brings to the table that make some of the city's top songwriters and performers want to collaborate with him. The result is a CD encompassing a variety of genres and moods all expertly crafted and delivered around a voice and style that is all Cootie.
Links referenced in the show:
- Coot Crabtree can be found here: Reverb Nation | MySpace | Facebook.
- Cootie last appeared on Show #064 and Show #094.
- Just to get the shout-outs taken care of early, Cootie has been known to perform songs written by his friends Johnny Ping, Owen Neighbors, and Jethro Easyfields (guest on Show #054 and returning soon in Show #126).
- He usually plays live the Rhinestones (MySpace | Reverb Nation) and the Payton Brothers (MySpace | Web Site) -- not to be confused with the Avett Brothers -- as his backup band.
- Cootie was introduced to the music scene by John Jet and Jethro Easyfields who dragged him up on stage at Locals Only one night. He is looking forward to playing at Sabbatical, Locals' offspring.
- Cootie was originally the host of the Back Road Radio Show, Wednesday nights at 8:30 on 91.9 WITT. That role has since passed to Andrew Funke and Tim Plunkett of the Rhinestones (Web Site | MySpace). At the time it was sponsored by Spencer's Stadium Tavern.
- Portions of his new album, "Blues for the Muse," were recorded by Perry Stevens at Snapjoint studios (MySpace / Web Site).
- Other portions were recorded by producer/engineer Scott Kern.
- The song, "Oh Baby, What are We Gonna Do?" features Joanna Ping on backup vocals.
