SMI Radio Ep. 63 On Demand: Vicci Martinez and Pete Johnson (Perry Acker)

Vicci Martinez put on a fantastic performance at the Synergia Northwest presents Music Mattters “Live” at The Paramount this past May. She will return to the Northwest to play a show at the Showbox at The Market this Friday, June 15th and Jazzbones, Sunday, June 17th. Her first full length album on Universal drops Tuesday, June 19th.

Opening for Vicci on Friday and appearing on the Showbox stage for the first time will be Perry Acker. 

On this week’s episode of SMI Radio you will hear my backstage conversation with Vicci that took place after her performance at Music Matters “Live.” We spoke about the evolution of her music following a very successful showing on NBC’s The Voice. Her strong performance in front of a national TV audience helped her gain a national fan base and land a deal on a major label. In addition to our conversation, you will hear some selected tracks off of her newest EP as well as some favorites from her Live at Jazzbones disc.

In the second half of the show is a lost interview with Perry Acker’s Pete Johnson prior to their record release show this past fall. You will also hear selected cuts from their most recent effort, Path to Freedom.
