Show #237: Josh Kaufman

I've always said that it is both my greatest hope and greatest fear that SOMEBODY I know in the local music scene would get "the big break" and leave town for bigger and better things.  Well, it took ten years, but Josh Kaufman pretty much did that in spades.  I have to say though, all things considered, having him on the show felt a whole like like any other show.  Maybe this is just the way celebrity works, or maybe it's just a hreflection of who Josh is, but for the most part this interview felt like every other interview we've done, albeit with several more interesting areas of conversation to cover.

Josh, obviously known to most people in this country as "that guy who won that TV contest thing" was, and is, a treasure of our local music scene.  Over the years I've seen him play to two people at Castleton Grill as part of their Sunday night series. I've seen him play Battle of Birdy's with The New Etiquette to a crowd of people who mostly stood slack-jawed mumbling, "Who is this guy? Why have we never heard of him before?" And, of course I've seen him on national TV singing at the Indy 500 for a few million people. Funny enough, his energy and effort is the same in all three cases, and I really don't think he notices the difference.  After hearing this interview, I think you'll agree with me.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
