Top 20 Songs on Acoustic Pie, September 2012

September 30, 2012

Hello, everyone!

If there’s one thing I love even more than discovering a wonderful new artist, it’s finding that you like her, too!  And that appears to be the case with Kat Goldman, the current Acoustic Pie Featured Artist, who was voted into the no. 9 and 10 spots this month.  She’s a Canadian songwriter, now singing in the Boston area and sometimes remembered for her “near death experience in a bagel shop” (elaborated upon under 2004 in her Wikipedia entry).  She has a beautiful voice, engaging songs, and does a lot of acoustic arrangements in her recorded work.  I think you should take a listen to her newest album Gypsy Girl.

Three artists represent the San Diego singer/songwriter scene in this month’s Top 20:  Nate Donnis at no.11, Lee Tyler Post at no. 19, and Josh Damigo at no. 20.

Thanks for listening (and for reading)!

Top 20 Songs on Acoustic Pie, August 2012

September 2, 2012

Tom Waits was voted in at no. 1, Paul Simon at no. 7 and Jackson Browne at no. 11.

I love these guys, especially Paul Simon, but I’m very curious: What are the demographics of the listeners voting for these older, more established songwriters? Is it people like me who loved them in their heydays 30-40 years ago? Younger music lovers open to and discovering writers from the previous generation? At any rate, it’s truly exciting to see the classic singer/songwriters being well-received as it is to see the brand new comers to the Pie getting some attention such as Carsie Blanton (no. 8), Liz Longley (no. 9) and Joshua Radin (no. 17).

San Diego songwriters are represented this month by Tom Waits (no. 1), Lee Tyler Post at no. 3 and The Donnis Trio at no. 12.

Thank you for reading and for listening ;)
