SMI Radio kicks off 2014 with a brand new episode featuring two returning friends of the show.
When SMI Radio launched in April of 2010 our very first musical guest was Joe Simpson AKA Eldridge Gravy from Eldridge Gravy and The Court Supreme. To say I dig this outfit would be a complete understatement.
The band released their most recent record, Gravy’s In Your Area last month. I catch up with Joe to talk about the band’s new disc, some of the personal changes in the group and we spin some selected tracks from the new release.
In the second half of the show, I welcome back Artist Home’s Kevin Sur. Kevin and his crew are responsible for staging some incredible Northwest music festivals. Last year Artist Home launched the very first annual Timber! Outdoor Music Festival. It was so successful that he is bringing it back an expanded version taking place this summer.
You don’t have to wait for the summer sun to enjoy some great music in a festival setting. Artist Home will present the very first Timberrr! Winter Music Festival which will take place later this month (1/10 – 1/11) in beautiful Leavenworth, Washington.
We also share some music from Timberrr! artists as well.
There are still a few tickets left for this great event. To purchase tickets or find out more about Timberrr! Outdoor Music Festival visit the Facebook Page.

Tonight! Artist Home has chong the nomad giving a tutorial on making beats, a live performance by Tomo Nakayama. A screen printing tutorial by The Vera Project and even how to make flutes out of carrots from our friends at Honkfest West!

Word to the wise. Follow our pal Andrew Joslyn and the Passenger String Quartet's Instagram page @andrewjoslynmusic.
He's giving sneak previews of his symphonic work on network TV commercials and pop songs. Every student of violin and cello should be following his page. But so should you. You have heard Andrew and his writing on Grammy winning hits by Macklemore and Kesha.
...and his work with folks like Ethan Anderson to save the music industry locally and globally with the Recording Academy / GRAMMYs is something to watch.
Or don't follow him and life will be a little less colorful and inspiring, but sometimes you don't notice how good life can be without good art and good friends.
In that respect Art is dangerous because you will need more. Andrew has plenty in the vault... ... See MoreSee Less
