So, this is gonna be one busy summer! Plans have been set into motion to film a music video for the song Kingpin this month, Tea Simson of L'Assassins will be playing the female role, and Joe Lamon will be playing the male role. My long time hero Ric Hollister of Jack Knife and the Sharps will be playing a cameo part in this film as well! The video will be released in September along with two others, Waiting For Me and Fill It Up, landing almost exactly on the one year anniversary of the Artist Signal countdown party! I'm super excited, for the first time ever I'll be producing, directing, and editing all three of these videos, giving me a creative funnel, which will be awesome. Waiting For Me is nearly finished and I'm really pleased with how it's turned out.
This is the 10th consecutive week that the new album has been in the AMA Top 100. "What You Gonna Do?" peaked at #62 in the early part of April, and has been bouncing around in the 70's the last couple weeks. We're starting a European Americana campaign for radio in the next week or two, hopefully we can hit top 40 for that chart!KEXP 90.3FM in Seattle added our new album to their library, I'm not sure if they've played it yet but it would be great if they did, as they are one of the country's largest indie radio stations, if you have a minute please send them a request, thanks! We've had a ton of local support from radio as well, 89.3 the Current (Minneapolis), KVSC 88.5 (St.Cloud), KFAI 90.3 (Minneapolis), KUMD 103.3 (Duluth), KMSU 89.7 (Mankato), KQAL 89.5 (Winona), Northern Community Radio (north-central Minnesota), Pioneer 90.1 (Thief River Falls), and Rockin' 101 (St. Cloud, MN) have added the album or specific songs from the album to their playlists!
I've booked lots of summer events recently, most of which welcome all ages, check outwww.crankshaftmusic.com if you have a minute, thanks for the continued support! Crankshaft.
