Show #031: Jenn Cristy Returns

This week marks the first new show for a while, and hopefully a return from our self-imposed hiatus to producing new shows on a semi-regular basis (at least that's my New Years' resolution this year).  What can I say?  It's been a crazy last twelve months -- but in a really good way this time, at least. 

Jenn Cristy has now become our first repeat guest, which is just fine by me, since her previous appearance was one of the best-received shows we've done, and one of my favorite interviews to date -- although, I think this one is even better.  Jenn comes to us this time with a freshly-inked international distribution deal with one of those big record company things we like to make fun of, along with four brand new songs which she has graciously allowed us to play for all of you.  This does not, however, excuse you from going out and buying all four of them separately at one of the locations listed below.  In addition, we get to meet the rest of the band for the first time and gain a little insight into what life on the road with Jenn is really like.

Links referenced in the show:  

  • Prior to listening to this show, you may want to go back and listen to Jenn's first visit with us back on Show #012.  That's where we cover the basics like her history, influence, songwriting process, performance habits, and the usual kinds of things we talk about around here.
  • Jenn Cristy can be found here: Web Site / MySpace / Facebook.
  • For those of you who use such things, she is also a geek-in-training that is becoming proficient with Twitter and Facebook Fan Pages as well.
  • All of her music -- two complete albums plus the four new songs you heard tonight, are available at iTunes, Amazon, Napster, Rhapsody, and most other major on-line music outlets.  
  • Jenn has recently signed with Gracie Productions / EMI who distribute her music internationally.
  • When in Vegas, the Jenn Cristy band stays at the Excalibur Hotel, which features the loosest penny slots in town.
  • Special thanks to Locals Only for letting us take over a couple of booths for recording, as well as for being tireless supporters of local independent music in Indianapolis.

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.
