Quentin Young brings the blues to CMO. He muses over Hendrix, Robert Johnson, and Lead Belly. As Quentin says about the blues,”It’s pure art. Raw art – blood and internal organs and brain matter laid out for you.” The blues is a conversation between the artist, their instrument, and their soul. We are talking (and playing) the blues on Colorado Music Originals.

CMO talks with Vivek Tiwary, founder of the Tiwary Entertainment Group, about The “Second” life of a Song. Vivck’s passion for music led him to project involving the music industry. He started Starpolish.com a site developed to help musicians help themselves. Lately, traditional band management no longer was effective, so he evolved the process into such projects like Green Day’s American Idiot on Broadway, Producing a documentary about Brian Epstein called the Fifth Beatle which Tiwary had acquired the rights to the music of the Beatles, and Punk Rock Dad a sitcom based on Jim Lindberg the singer of the punk band Pennywise.
So much good information we had to make the interview into two shows.
