Michael Mott Talks His New EP 'GONE' & #GONEGIVEAWAY



As you probably know by now, I am a HUGE supporter of Michael Mott.  
Not only did I have the opportunity to work with him on his debut album, 'Where The Sky Ends,' but have had the pleasure of having a front row seat to his musical adventures.  
I interviewed Michael this past December on WPNR (check it out here), when he released 'Where The Sky Ends: The Dance Remixes', and he is back at it again.  Last week, Michael released his brand new EP, 'Gone: The Remixes,' which features 5 all new versions of the Mott-penned/Ben Fankhauser vocal-smash, "Gone."  If you haven't already, be sure to follow the iTunes link above and grab a copy.  Michael is also giving away 3 copies of his new EP, the #GONEGIVEAWAY ends TONIGHT!  There are a few hours left so go ahead and enter before it's too late.  You can enter using the Rafflecopter widget posted below.
Michael and I had a great conversation about the making of his new EP, his musical inspirations, and what he's currently working on!  Missed the interview?  I just posted it on SoundCloud.  
Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you think!

THE SONGBIRD PROJECT TAKES RADIO

I'M BACK!


Thank you to all who have been following my musical journey for the past four years, it's been quite a crazy ride...and it's about to get even crazier.

As most you know, I have been an On-Air Personality for WPNR 90.7 FM and have created country music programming for the station - #WPNRCountry.  Well...we are building on our country genre and are taking THE SONGBIRD PROJECT to the airwaves!

THE SONGBIRD PROJECT airs on Tuesdays/Thursdays from 1PM-2PM EST on 90.7 FM (if in the Central New York area) or you can listen live at: http://player.liquidcompass.net/WPNRFM.


I had an amazing opportunity this past November to interview one of my idols, Martina McBride, before she played a local fundraiser at the historic Stanley Theater in Utica, NY.
Check out the interview below and follow me on SoundCloud here.   
I have been having an absolute blast at the station and am so excited to take the blog to the airwaves. I'll be tweeting while on-air, be sure to tweet me your requests using #WPNRCountry!
