This week features the long-promised interview with Tish Lyndsey, an exciting performer in the local scene who blends pop, soul, and jazz with an angelic voice and a stage presence that can only be described as electrifying. Tish gives us four great tracks that show off her dynamic range as a singer/songwriter, along with a fantastic interview where she discusses her history, her family, her loves, and her drives. All of this is neatly packaged with her personable charm, humor, and uncanny ability -- as the photo above indicates -- to maintain her glamour, even when donning a space-cadet headset and "playing geek" with me for forty-five minutes.

Both on-stage and off, Tish is a tireless worker for human rights, both at home and abroad, working for various charities and causes, including my own band's very successful benefit for our friend Tammy Dial -- a woman whom, at the time, Tish had only known for a few minutes before graciously volunteering her time, talents, and loyal fan base to our cause. In all, she is a superlative woman and humanitarian that I am proud to call my friend.

Side note: It is my practice as of late to dub the guest artist's music underneath the interview to cover up edits, line noise, and other undesirable audio elements inherent with location recording. In the case of this week's show -- recorded live in a very crowded Jazz Kitchen -- I discovered that the band playing in the next room during the recording was clearly audible and prominent enough that it couldn't be EQed or filtered out of the mix without distraction. Therefore it is important to note that the "bed music" you hear during the interview is not Tish Lyndsey's, but is actually the normal ambience of the venue and, to the best of my knoweldge, should be credited to Rob Dixon's group, Triology. If I am mistaken in my identification/recollection, please correct me and I will give proper attribution.

  • To read more about efforts to aid the children of Uganda, visit
  • Tish recently put on the benefit she mentioned for Women for Women, surpassing her own goals, and raising over $1500 for the organization, which supports women in war-torn regions with financial and emotional aid, job-skills training, rights education and small business assistance so they can rebuild their lives.
  • Tish is also affiliated with Old Soul Edutainment, a great promotional group that showcases little-known local artists.
  • To continue with the activist theme of this episode, we also feature a promo for Indirect Democracy, which provides a somewhat different, often irreverent look at the news. Definitely worth checking out.
  • And finally, once again we put the call out for supporters of Internet-based radio stations to visit and ask their congressmen to support bill HR2060, which will set more-reasonable licensing fees and allow them to continue supporting artists by bringing us great music that is ignored by most terrestrial radio stations.
