Show #086: Brian Pitzer

As with the last episode, this week's show has been a long time in the making and completes our two-part look into the Frankfort music scene (see Show #089) as we sample the music of Brian Pitzer.  Brian is another one of those multi-faceted players who easily blends and moves between several styles of music – blues, folk, rock, modern country just to name a few.  Talking to Brian, you quickly understand that he is a very savvy guy with a lot going on beneath the surface than just playing a few restaurants, coffee houses, and open-air markets.  Only hinted at in his lyrics is a wisdom, and often a dark one, that bears closer scrutiny than one listen, and one podcast interview can sufficiently explore.

As the interview indicates, however, this only scratches the surface of where his true loves and influences lie.   During the show, he talks a lot about his marketing and business strategies through various networking and organizational memberships which channeled him into professional coaching and mentoring, and finally into working directly with the Nashville recording scene.  Always evolving, he is currently working on his next album, which promises to lean more on the rock-and-roll side of the spectrum, and is in the early stages of forming a band to take his music to the next level.  A sharp contrast when one considers all of the singer/songwriters in the area who have been getting away from the “band setting” and into to more intimate settings where Brian has already made his mark.

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.
