A brief head's up on some of my artists.

Deni Bonet is an eclectic pop/singer-songwriter that both Jann Klose and Joe Deninzon turned me onto. Her album, IT'S ALL GOOD is coming early 2012, and was produced by a mutual friend, Richard Barone, who you know from the Bongos. I'm just going through photos of the album's sessions that included B-52s Fred Schneider, REM's Peter Buck, John Wesley Harding, and Wings' Steve Holley. Deni has excerpts of her songs at her web site http://www.denibonet.com.

Tim Fort is best known to people (especially those who watched this season's AMERICA'S GOT TALENT) as the Kinetic King. He's planning on beating the Guinness World Record of knocking down 5067 tongue depressors with the knocking down of 6000 tongue depressors this Oct. 7 in Saint Paul, MN. More info by Monday. This is Tim's youtube page: http://www.youtube.com/user/lunatim and web site is http://www.lunatim.com

The photo for Joe Deninzon's electric violin method book, “Plugging in: A guide to Gear and New Techniques for the 21st Century Violinist," on Mel Bay books over the holiday season is up at http://www.flickr.com/photos/8320698@N05/6194339498/in/set-72157611847817960

Joe Deninzon is the music world's "go to" guy for all things strings and violin, doing sessions, arrangements, live performances. Some of the acts he's worked with: Bruce Springsteen, Sheryl Crow, Everclear, Ritchie Blackmore, Smokey Robinson, President Clinton, Johnny Matthis, Les Paul, Phoebe Snow, Robert Bonfiglio... http://www.joedeninzon.com
