The Days of "Featured Artist"

Back in 2012-2013 I, along with excellent assistance from Melody Watson, got started on a series of interviews with musicians hailing from as close as around the corner, to several states away, who were performing their own compositions (well except for one...see Ellen Ciompi's Interview). It was an excitimg time. There were so many ideas processing that two brains could not keep up with all of it. The "Featured Artist" segments started rolling onto Youtube at the rate of at least one a month. Though it might not seem like it, the quantity of work for this one thing alone was more demanding than first imagined. The work and time demands were eventually being spread between the interviews and the live shows being produced then as well. Needless to say, something had to give, so it was decided that they should be set aside with no real vision of whether they would return or not. It was a choice that brought both relief and sadness. I hope you will read about and watch many or all of them. There is still an urge within me to get back to doing them, so we'll see what tomorrow brings...
