Man, when it rains it pours, in a good way! Tons of awesome stuff is happening right now in life and in music and I’m so very thankful for all of it. And so for the first piece of news, it’s awesome to finally be able to say – I have a release date for my live album!
It’s coming out on September 19th and we’re having a release party concert at the Steynberg Gallery in SLO at 7:30pm! Details, as ever, on the shows page – www.lorenradis.com/shows
There’s a ten dollar charge at the door and your ticket comes with a copy of the album! It’s gonna be a great show, I’m being joined on cello by the incomparable Bob Liepman of Shadowlands and we’ll play through the entirety of the album, plus one or two bonus songs I think you’ll get a kick out of.
Anyway, the second bit of news is…
I’ve placed in the top three of the New Times Music Awards again this year!
My brand new song “A Young Man’s Song” won, and as a result I get to be featured on their compilation album, get a little plaque at the awards show, and I’m entered in the “Reader’s Choice” awards too! You can listen to my song exclusively right here – http://www.newtimesslo.com/ntma_choice.php , and you can vote, right now, for your favorite local musician, and there’s some amazing talent featured there this year, it’s an honor to be included. You know what they say, vote early, vote often!
