From nothing it has become a blog containing dozens of Indie artists. Follow me as I introduce you to them, from the place where they breed, New York City! ....and come with us as we document it on film!!

Thursday

Throwback Thursday~Bob Dylan~Clara Lofaro, Coming to New York City. #Supportindie

The Melting Pot, New York City...especially for musicians....
I hear the stories from dozens every week. I came here because.....

And I'm afraid that.. I won't fit in, I won't be able to keep up with the pace, will I be accepted?
Will I find a place to live that I can afford, will I need a day gig?

Well here are two, 50 years apart, who have both 'fit in' and given us some wonderful music.

1961...He left Minnesota, came to be near his Idol, who was hospitalized, Woody Guthrie.
Visiting him daily and playing what were then called 'coffee houses' in Greenwich Village...

Bob Dylan...
here is his take on NYC! from 1961...
VIDEO:: 'Talkin New York'

                                      **************************************

Then some 40 years later came CLo.....Clara Lofaro
....with a smile!


CLo fit New York City like a glove. Writing her music, performing and finally a while ago, "no more shitty gigs".....she's all in with her music and her career! In Da Apple!

Her very positive take on NYC, after arriving was:: A video~'Just Smile'
From 2010.
