Another Competition

Yes, folks I am entered into another competition.  This one is called Tyler Ward’s USA Live Lounge competition.  Tyler is a youtube guy like myself and has been steadily growing his fans through unique cover versions of popular songs, as well as catchy original material.  He started a competition recently with the grand prize being a trip to Denver (where he lives) to record a youtube video with him.

The entry had to be a cover of a popular song (meaning currently in the iTunes top 100) and had to be uploaded to youtube and added to the competition facebook page.  Since I was already thinking about covering a Sara Bareilles song (which also happens to be in the top 100) I decided to go for it and enter the competition as well.  If you click here you will arrive on the facebook page for the competition where I would ask you to “like” my video.  Since there are tons of entries already you may have to scroll down the “wall” to find mine.

Thanks in advance for helping me out and I’ll also link the cover video below for you to watch.

House Concerts

I recently sent out an email to my mailing list about house concerts. I wanted to open up this invitation to everyone and see if I could gather enough interest for a tour of these shows in the spring of 2011.

Basically a house concert is a show where a fan hosts a musician in their own living room to play for a group of friends/family/neighbors/co-workers. This allows for a very intimate experience and allows the fans to hear the music clearly without any distractions that might be typical of a club or bar.

If I can gather enough dates for the spring of 2011, I will try to get out and make this happen. I would really like to meet the people that have been supporting my music and watching me online, and what better way to do that than to have them host me in their environment.

I have included a video below that better explains what house concerts are and hopefully this will provide you with the info you need to think about hosting.  Right now I will probably have to limit this to the US and possibly parts of Canada as it is costly to travel.  If you are interested in hosting, please contact me on the contact page of my website. www.ryanknorr.com/contact/

I look forward to hearing from you and please don’t hesitate to ask any further questions you might have about house concerts or hosting.
