Top 20 Songs on Acoustic Pie, December 2012

On this, the last day of 2012, I make note of the variety, in particular the mix of the old and new, that are voted into the Top 20 almost every month. Krista Detor, a perennial favorite of yours and mine, appears at no. 4 *and* no. 8 this month. When I look at the new artists on the Top 20 list, Adrienne Frailey stands out as one that you might be particularly interested in. And that song, “My Gloomy Poem” at no. 3, is a particularly sweet, piano-accompanied, sad and wistful love-lost ballad. You can check out the CD or MP3 versions of that album Definitely at CD Baby

San Diego songwriters are also represented with a mix of old and new this month: Jeffrey Joe Morin, a newcomer to the Pie, debuts at no. 9 while Berkley Hart, San Diego’s favorite acoustic duo and among the first artists ever to appear on the Acoustic Pie stream, were voted in at no. 11 with a song from their newest album Crow.

Happy New Year, everyone! And thank you for listening to Acoustic Pie and for letting me know what you think.
