What a night. Still recovering from it. The Podcast Hotel was really hopping until 3 a.m. There were podcasters all over the place, but the music was awesome. Far better than I expected. Samantha Murphy played us a little private concert and gave us a world premiere of one of her new songs (here’s a blurry Flickr photo of her giving her performance that shows the energy she puts into her music). Her latest album is named “Somewhere between starving & stardom.” I asked her where she lives and she said she stays on the road 100% of the time going between gigs. Her fans loan her cars and give her money. She’s going to Nashville next month. Here’s hoping she finds that elusive break.
She has a blog and free music to listen to. You should give her a try.
When I was there I asked a few people “what’s the best blog/podcast about the indie music scene?” All the fingers pointed to C.C. Chapman’s efforts. Subscribed!
Why are small conferences so fun? How often can you get this close to a talented musician while she tests out her new songs on you?
I have a feeling the next Podcast Hotel will be a weee bit bigger.
