Music industry update | California, USA | Indie artist, Ava Lemert

Ava Lemert has been knocking the socks of California's soul music scene for quite a long time now, and not only has she become one of the state's most exciting independent acts to watch live in concert, she is also becoming a popular face in the local press as well. Her debut album, "Twelve" is still hailed as one of the best independent soul music releases this decade and her outstanding saxophone and vocal performances are still unmatched by any new singer songwriter that has emerged from the region in a very long time. "Ava's Groove", her latest album was released to critical acclaim back in June, right in the thick of summer and the buzz continues to grow exponentially several months on, especially as her gigging schedule becomes busier and busier, and more and more unsuspecting music fans are suddenly discovering the funky, soulful, groovy, super-smooth, utterly infectious sound they never even knew they had a taste for. Ava has had the honor of performing live at the Eldorado Hills Christmas lighting ceremony twice now. She put on a show-stopping performance each time and made it more memorable and special than ever before. So of course she's been invited to do it again for the third time, this Christmas. This year's event is scheduled to take place on Saturday, the 7th of December, and if you haven't guest already, it's going to be spectacular. The event is free. Full event details, tickets and venue information are available on the Skunk Radio Live Events page.

Music industry update | Ontario, Canada | Indie artist, Crissi Cochrane

Soulful, heartwarming, graceful, sophisticated and elegant, Crissi Cochrane's sound is one that often leaves critics and fans lost for words or running in circles trying to describe what they are trying to describe. It's a sound that is soft as a cloud, smooth as a baby's bottom and so easy on the ears you'll feel like a little angel who has a crush on you is blowing softly in your ears, yet it's powerful enough to sweep you off your feet no matter how heavy your ankles are or how macho you feel at the time. It's infectious, it's profound and most importantly, it will always leave you with a smile of your face. Canadian singer songwriter, Crissi made her debut with the release of "Darling, Darling", a sensational 8 track album that set the tone for what has been described as one of the most illustrious independent music careers Ontario has ever seen, and is still a fan favorite today. With a compact but impactful repertoire under her belt she shot to fame in 2016 when her song "Pretty Words" went viral on Spotify and YouTube, receiving a combined total of close to 10 million plays. She quickly became a household name and has since received the favor of the local and national press, and featured on some of Canada's top radio and television stations. She has also played some of the country's most prestigious live music venues, concert halls and festivals. Crissi hasn't released a new album for a few years now but earlier this month she confirmed that she is now back in the studio recording again. She goes into details about her journey over the past few years, her recent pregnancy and why the album has taken so long in a new blog series which she started earlier this month on Wordpress [Read here].
