The Sharon Lane Album Project Fundraiser

On Saturday, April 4 family, friends and fans gathered at Gilly’s Jazz Club to show their love and appreciation to Sharon Lane. Lane’s musical DNA is woven throughout Dayton’s music scene, so when word got out that she was looking to record again, people were more than willing to show their support for one of Dayton’s musical icons!

Sharon has been itching to get back into the studio for some time. Her last album called “Gigs Up” released in 2000 was an instant classic with tunes like “Back Alley Serenade,” “Bus Station,” and “Rattlesnake”. Sharon and I have talked several times over the years about her return to the studio, but she was never able to make the leap. I mentioned Sharon’s desire for a new album to Paula Ashcraft, owner of All Nighter Recording Studio, who immediately offered to help out with the project. We discussed several options on how to get the project off the ground, one being a fundraiser to help with the cost of the CD. View full article »

Geoff Barrow [Image by: Mintonfilm]Jay Z’s newly launched Tidal music service has reignited the debate about the economics of music in an era where streaming services like Spotify, iTunes, and YouTube reign supreme. In hopes of adding to that discussion, Portishead’s Geoff Barrow recently took to Twitter to share exactly how much money the band actually earned from its 34 million streams last year. His estimate: After taxes he was left with £1,700, or around $2,511, according to Consequence Of Sound.

The Dayton music scene has evolved a lot over the years, both for better and worse. One thing many longtime Dayton concertgoers bemoan is the lack of national touring acts stopping to play the Gem City, something that in the late 1980s and ’90s was actually pretty common. One promoter in particular was instrumental in making Dayton a regular place for national touring bands to play. His name is Ken Gross.

In 2004, I interviewed Derek and wrote up his 10 Commandments of Jam for Guitar World. Pretty right on and deep thinking, as per usual for DT. I’ll be posting more and more from my extensive GW archives.
