SCOTT KROKOFF
SITS
ON THE COUCH


From tax lawyer to musician, Scott Krokoff has been compared to such artists as the Gin Blossoms, Jack Johnson, Paul Simon and Matt Nathanson.

We will catch up with Scott and find out about the music he is working on at the moment and how his career has transpired since he was first featured on The Big Leather Couch almost a year ago, back in April of 2009.

You'll have a chance to heard some songs from his debut album "A Better Life".

The live interactive chat room opens 20 minutes before show time. Follow this link HERE and click on the Chat Now icon.

Remember, unless you take the two minutes to register, you will not be able to participate in the chat room or send me questions to ask Joe, but you will still hear the show.

So tune in on Monday evening or, you can always listen anytime after the show ends from the player HERE or the one on The Big Leather Couch and you can download to your iTunes, directly from the player.

I will take calls for Scott at 1.347.633.9400


New artist for y'all to listen to today. His name is Sugar Blue, the CD is called Threshold. He plays the harp and does it extremely well. He wrote most of the material on this CD, his fourth.

He has also appeared on some of the great blues and rock records of our time; The Stones "Emotional Rescue" and that is Sugar Blue on the Stones hit "Miss You", Dylan's Bootleg Series from 1991, with Willie Dixon on "Hidden Charms" and others.

His lyrics are direct and do not pull any punches. His song "Stop The War" is an indictment of the continuing escalation of fighting in the Middle East.

Let me know how you feel about Sugar Blue in your comments.

  3. DrillerAA09 Says:
  4. That would be a no for Sugar Blue. The vocals are a little too rough or raw for me. There seemed to be more lyrics sung off pitch than on. The best part of the song was the instrumental bridge. Best of luck with the show tonight though. I'll try to catch it.

     
  5. Bond Says:
  6. KATHERINE: Thanks

    DRILLERAA: I agree with the vocals..I like his playing and his lyrics, but would like to see someone else sing.

     
  7. Dianne Says:
  8. the music is fantastic although it seems to overwhelm the lyrics at points
    you know I agree with his message and raw is always fine with me

    have a good week kiddo

     
  9. Jay Says:
  10. Is it just me or are those guys a little pessimistic about things? They're okay. Not great, but okay.

    I'll be there tonight.

     
  11. Bond Says:
  12. DIANNE: Thanks for chiming in...

    JAY: He is a tad, yes indeed...Thanks...looking forward to seeing you

     
  13. ...the category I would put this in is "Less Than Special"...

     
  14. Micky-T Says:
  15. It's not your everyday listening tune for sure but I loved the intro, peaceful, very peaceful. It put me sitting by a lake in the early morning.

     
  16. Bond Says:
  17. PHFRANKIE: Thanks for the feed back

    MICKEY-T: Yeah, it is strange..I feel like I should like it, but in the end, I am not sure I do

     
  18. Travis Says:
  19. Nothing subtle in the lyrics eh? I wanted to like it, but to my ear it sounded like all the different elements were competing with each other instead of complementing the whole.

    But then again, perhaps that was the point? The lyrics have a clear message, and the arrangement may be purposely discordant.

     
  20. Mimi Lenox Says:
  21. Hey Vin...Have a great show tonight!
