hey mom! i’m “a big something” today

During a break in the middle of my crazy workday on Monday, our college radio station/local NPR affiliate KRCC had me over to the studios to interview me about the Fuel/Friends Chapel Sessions, my house shows, and the development of my blog and my perceptions of independent music in general over the last six years. They’re featuring that interview today on their “The Big Something” feature, as well as highlighting a track from my chapel sessions as their free song download of the day:

The International is Local: COS Music Blogger Heather Browne

Fuel/Friends Free Song of the Day, 11/2/11: “Josh McBride” by The Head and the Heart

According to the write-up, I am mild-mannered by day (I apparently fooled them) and they also caught me wearing my “Halloween costume” in the picture — I went to work dressed as ‘a business-casual SF Giants fan living in Colorado.’ The colors were so right.

In all seriousness, it feels really wonderful to continue to meet all sorts of passionate music lovers in Colorado Springs and work to further cross-pollinate and support good music here. I may work more with KRCC in the future on some rad collaborations. Stay tuned.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
