It’s your votes that determine the Top 20 ratings each month. So feel free to cast yours while you’re listening to Acoustic Pie. Your votes are also very helpful for me in deciding which songs to keep in the rotation and which artists to feature.
I’m thrilled to see three of Chris Pureka’s songs in the Top 20 this month (no. 9, 11,12). I love her, too ~ she was the Acoustic Pie Featured Artist in January 2007. And Teitur’s (another Featured Artist in December 2006) first album is really a gem (no. 17 & 18).
If you ever have a chance to catch Steve Seskin live, you should do so (no. 8)! He’s mostly known for penning top Nashville hits but he’s a great singer/songwriter himself ~ talented, charming and funny. I loved seeing him at the Bodie’s House Concert in January. I took my mom; she loved him, too.
For San Diego listeners, there were three local artists voted into the Top 20 this month: Gregory Page (no. 6), Angela Corea (no. 16), and Randi Driscoll (no. 19).
Thanks for voting! Thanks for listening!
