hello friends! i hope you're all doing well out there in podcast land. things are good here. i got to go to the back fret black ball gala on friday. it was a fantastic event held at the paramount theater here in austin. black fret is a non-profit that gives grant to musicians to help them further their careers. on friday, black fret gave out $150,000 in grants to artists! i talked to some folks on the red carpet but unfortunately, it was way too loud and the recordings came out crappy. but, i got a couple of minutes with black fret founders, colin kendrick and matt ott and you'll hear that on the intro to this show. congratulations to those guys for two years of supporting artists!!!! check out black fret at blackfret.org
