Blaire Alise and The Bombshells
This week’s playlist jumps back and forth between the old and the new, the nationally-known and the local-loves, to give you a taste of everything.
We decided to dedicate this week’s playlist to 5 of the local bands slotted in this weekend’s Secret Friends Fest. Check it out – and check out our interview with SFF creator Jason Stollsteimer!
We’ve created the perfect summer playlist – for all those Memorial Day BBQs, pool parties, family get-togethers – whatever you’re doing, we’re sure this playlist will get you in the summer celebration spirit!
We’re betting you’re getting a bit down with all of this cold weather coming in, right? First week of Fall can do that to a person… Well, this week’s playlist is the cure for all of those with the autumn blues. Hear tunes that can say what our hearts can’t, and rock away without a care. Inspiring and optimistic is what we were going for.
Okay, so she has her own band, her band has played the renowned Metro Times Blowout, and she was awarded a full scholarship to attend the Berklee College of Music in Boston for their summer program – where she was crowned the winner of the Berklee College of Music Singer/Songwriter competition…twice! Oh, did we mention she has accomplished all of this by the age of 16?! Yeah, we’re pretty impressed too.
Rounding out the last week of July, this week’s CW50 Detroit Proud Playlist includes tunes from a few singer-songwriters, a bit of country-folk, and the grungy Detroit rock, to a ’50s-inspired 16-year-old rocker, as well as a few long-time loves. Also, find one of the originators of techno music in our set. Did you know he was from Detroit? Check it out!
