David Jacobs-Strain "Halfway To The Coast"

There is so much music coming out right now, I simply don't see how it is possible to process it all. So you know, I am fielding requests to play the stages in both Hill Country Barbecue Market locations; in New York and in DC. Then there is the radio station that I curate in Austin, Texas, KDRP, and that provides another river of local and national artists looking for air play. For those of you still mourning the loss of my channel, X Country on XM, KDRP is something to explore. I wouldn't say it is exactly the same, because at XM, we all had to define our channels more narrowly to fit into the neighborhood we lived in. X Country was considered part of the Country cluster, while KDRP incorporates some R&B, Blues, and lots of early R&R. Check it out at, or download the App for Android, Blackberry, and iPhone.

So it goes, right? I don't want to even bring up how many requests I get in a day to do interviews, post videos, and do giveaways right here on the pages of Music Fog! And it is hard for us to even post one of our OWN videos every couple of weeks! You see, we all now have other responsibilities! But every once in a while, we dig into the archives for something that has yet to see light of day, like this video from David Jacobs-Strain. Ya know he has a new album out, right? Geneseo just hit the street a couple of weeks ago. David is a pure performer, masterful at everything he does, from his songwriting, through the vocal and instrumental skills he brings. We had a magic moment with him on the Music Fog bus, at Cherokee Creek Music Fest 3 years ago. Bob Beach joined on harp, on a song that can be found on the Terraplane Angel album. Here is the Music Fog version of "Halfway To The Coast."

I will definitely be checking out KDRP now. I am one of those still mourning X Country. It was a great station and you turned me on to so much music. When it got lost in the merger, I immediately canceled XM. It just wasn't close to the same anymore.
I had found Fog Music a year ago or so but then hadn't been back in awhile until someone on Facebook tonight posted one of your videos of Zoe Muth & The Lost High Rollers. Good stuff.

Any chance you ever curate playlists on music streaming services like Spotify or Google Play Music? That would be fantastic if you do, and maybe something to look into if you don't?
