Nyteowl is Minneapolis artist, producer, and DJ Jeremiah Conlon. Nyteowl recently formed a full band based on his Nyteowl demo and will be playing live shows starting in Fall 2008. Members of the band include T.I.M (The Color of Brightness) on bass, and Sovietpanda (Too Much Love) on guitar.
I am the lead singer for the Band Stellar Vector. I am the principal songwriter and piano player for the Electronica act Aurascape. I am the keyboardist for grunge rock band Tasha's Laughter. Right now, I'm a very tired Charles.
Since winning a Lawrence, Kansas songwriting contest (judged by Robert Earl Keen and Butch Hancock!) years ago, I've recorded 45s and cds, which several great record labels (including Medium Cool/Twin Tone and the legendary The Bus Stop Label) were kind enough to release. I had a band called The Leatherwoods that released a 45 and a cd (co-produced by Peter Jesperson and Paul Westerberg, who co-wrote a few tunes as an added bonus).
Winning tracks from each contest are selected by panelists from within the music industry. Each week a three-song playlist from the winning submissions will be featured on the mnartists.org and Summit Brewery web sites. Quarterly listening parties at area venues will take place and a compilation CD of music from the yearlong contest will be produced.
Submission Specifications and Entry Process Any and all types of music accepted; only three tracks per musician will be reviewed for possible inclusion on the CD. Tracks can be uploaded to artist pages on mnartists.org, and a URL of the page can then be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions must come from mnartists.org members. To sign up for membership, visit www.mnartists.org/join.do?action=join. For assistance with registration or with uploading music tracks, please e-mail email@example.com or call 612.375.7611.
