OK, if you haven’t heard Joe Wilkins, it’s time.  Don’t let his pleasant, unassuming personality fool you.  This guy is a powerhouse talent, whose songs paint vivid pictures in your head, so you might not notice just how good he is on guitar.  You can see him on Local Music Seen with Allen Estes tomorrow (WED) at 6:30pm on Cape Ann TV Channel 12.  Then bop over to Giuseppe’s and catch him live with Chris Langathianos.

If you miss tomorrow, you can see him with Joe Cardoza on bass and Leo Ciamitaro on drums at Dog Bar for a Fiesta Friday party.  And if you’re in the mood for something more quiet, catch solo him at The Landing on Saturday.  See full live music schedule here.

Listen to this from Local Music Seen:

Watch what happens at 1:16 in this video and you’ll get why he’s a pro.  See more Joe Wilkins videos here.

Come Monday morning, there’s simply no excuse for not knowing who this rising star is.  Before you know it Joe Wilkins will be on tour in Europe or Asia and you’ll have missed your chance to see him in an intimate venue serving good food in your own back yard FOR FREE!

Rising Star Brad Byrd on TV and Live @ Dog Bar this week

Brad Byrd (R) w/ Allen Estes on the set of Local Music Seen

We see one of our roles, here at GMG, as making sure you know who’s on the way to making it big.  Rockport native, Brad Byrd is one of those local musicians.  Some day, when Brad’s playing stadiums and you can’t get a ticket for under 200 bucks, you’ll be saying, “I saw him at the Dog Bar in Gloucester, Mass!”  But only if you get down to the Dog Bar tomorrow (THURSDAY) where he’s on at 9pm.

Tonight you can see Brad on Local Music Seen with Allen Estes, which airs at 6:30 on Cape Ann TV Channel 12.  In this show, Brad’s hypnotic voice draws you into his world where you’ll notice that every one of his lyrics is perfectly placed and there isn’t a single extra word. This is some of the best songwriting you’ll hear.

When this show premiered last June, Allen introduced an excellent new song, “The Trouble with Me”.  Here’s a taste:

Almost exactly a year ago, Brad shot a music video for his hit, Zero to the 101 at Minglewood.  Here’s some behind-the-scenes footage from that video shoot.
