2015 March Triple A Issue
March might just be my favorite month. Spring Training signals the start of baseball, the NCAA tournament gets everyone filling out their brackets and SXSW is here which means a huge percentage of new music discovery comes out at this time.
Nowhere is this more evident than our two cover artists on this month’s Radio Informer. Tor Miller’s “Midnight” is already making an impact with 16 stations already playing the song as it jumps into the top 30. Like all great songs it just gets better with each repeated listen. I expect Madisen Ward And The Mama Bear to be the talk of SXSW…and Bonnaroo…and The Newport Folk Festival and beyond. This mother-son duo from Kansas City has a great story and I expect everyone who witnesses their show will be talking about them.
Hard to believe but Guster is celebrating their 20 year anniversary. To keep a band together for that long is no small feat. Their first single “Endlessly” may be the key to their longevity as the song pleads “Walk with me, talk to me, eventually, we can get this right”, proving once again that a band is a marriage. Four new adds this week come in for the song as it continues to grow.
“I leave my door and trouble ensues, I must have someone else’s blues”. We’ve all been there and Canada’s Great Lake Swimmers have created a winning song when you seem to always come out on the losing end. The US tour starts up in April. Invite them to your station and ask them about recording at Ontario’s Tyendinaga Cavern and Caves.
In this PPM world, you want to find the hits. I think the work may have already been done for you as “Satellite” by Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness is already a top 15 hit at Alternative and with 4 million streams on Spotify it is now starting to major airplay at Triple A as it jumps into the Top 30 and shows no signs of slowing down.
Other exciting music to check out is New York’s Rachel Brown. Three brilliant legacy bands are back with strong songs Freddy Jones Band and Blues Traveler featuring 3OH!3 and They Might Be Giants. We close out this issue with a dance jam from Saint Motel and the instantly recognizable vocals from Fun. vocalist Nate Ruess. Enjoy!
