Show #254: Jethro Easyfields Forever

I've done three podcasts with Jethro Easyfields now, and booked him a couple of times for various gigs. He remains one of my favorite personalities in the local scene, is always extremely easy and generous to work with, and easily gets my vote for top five most-fun people to hang out with in the local music scene. To call him a "character" might be an understatement -- he's more like a "force." If you know him, you almost hang on his every word, knowing that about half of what he says (or is it simply the way he says it) is going to come out like some quotable line of poetry. If you haven't met him, well then I definitely want to be the one to introduce you. Some of my favorite stories start with, "Remember when I introduced you to Jethro?"

Best of all, his unique personality carries over and complements his considerable talents as a player, making Jethro something of the local music scene's equivalent of a troubadour warrior. He started off in Northern Indiana here in mid-1980's and later journeyed across the country to hone his skills, most-notably as a resident of New Orleans and Phoenix. Now as an elder-statesman of the local Americana "family" he has played with, and had his songs covered by, many of the great players here in town. Definitely take some time and check out his CD Release on April 20th (make of the choice of date what you will) at Square Cat Vinyl.

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.
