Troy Millette

I had a great time seeing music Thursday at The Skinny Pancake. My friends were running on their own timeline so I got going a little early and took the lovely walk down to the waterfront. I got in and settled and almost finished eating when Tony Gallucci from WBKM stopped in and hung our banner behind the stage. Mike Luoma showed up shortly after that and Troy Millette Music began to play. He opened with a cover of I’m on Fire and tossed a little Dancing In The Dark into the middle. He followed with a couple of originals. Magnolias was just gorgeous and I’m really beginning to like his new song about how something in your arms feels like home. He returned to Bruce for Atlantic City but tossed in some Fast Car and something about walking 1,000 miles for you, ’cause in this day and age, he would totally do that. He played a song about not being sure if he wanted to fix this and make it right and kept the theme going with Anna Marie. He lit me up with his version of Ghosts (Of What We Used To Be) then closed with a fun medley. It began with something about wanting it that way, went into something about a blank space. He walked on water for a while then ended by bringing out our inner Whitney for Dance With Somebody. He always plays fun shows and I love when I get to hear him play.

In the past few months Mike has been doing a lot of music programming at WBKM.ORG and has turned me on to a lot of cool music. He invented a series called Virtual In Studio where artists can film themselves playing stripped down versions of their songs. decker. was the first artist to sign on and came to town, which is why I skipped my usual Thursday night show. I had listened to his song The Matador a couple of times but wasn’t entirely certain what to expect.

The set break was short then Decker took the stage with a microphone, and acoustic guitar, a stomp box gadget for one foot and a tambourine for the other. A series of effects pedals gave the songs a lush sound. He opened with a song called Burning Grass that he said was a tribute to Tom Petty. He chatted between songs and took the subjects to deep thoughtful places that kept the audience captivated. He sang a song called The Garden that was about being in favor of all of humanity that really lit up my soul. He sang a song called Holy Ghost that sounded like cruising on an Arizona highway listening to Chuck Berry while on LSD. He followed with cool songs about a State Trooper and The Phantom. He played a gorgeous song about finding a dead deer in the Arizona desert and praying over its carcass. It’s called Smudge and is quickly becoming a favorite. He hit home with a song called The Saint which was about spending time with his grandmother in hospice. I went through that with my mother just about a year ago. Sometimes, it’s nice to know we all go through the wonderful and terrible parts of life together. He followed with a song called Awake that is both staggeringly positive and a really cool song. Usually, songs like that get a little sappy musically, but his version is strong.

He took a quick break and a couple of us stepped out for a little air. I chatted with Troy for a bit then we went back in. Decker was sitting in a chair in front of the audience playing and singing with no microphone. Rats, I should have gone in sooner. I hate making unforced errors. I think I missed the song Mexico but caught most of The Matador. He closed the night with a song about JFK called Patsy.

It’s really hard to describe just how beautiful the whole show was. I was phenomenally impressed. I’d go see him again anytime.

Bethany Conner and Troy Millette

 

I had a great time seeing music a couple of Saturdays ago at On Tap Bar & Grill in Essex. I had to work that early evening, but as soon as I could, I hopped into the car and drove to the show. I got in and settled as Troy Millette Music was finishing up a song. He dove into Mr Jones and may have changed the opening lyric but I wasn’t quite settled enough to be sure. I’m On Fire had a little Dancing In The Dark in the middle, then he filled my heart with Magnolias. I think the next one was a Taylor Swift cover then he brought up Bethany Conner Music to join him on his song Home. It sounded lovely.

 

He left the stage but she continued on with a song called Home. Her dad Greg Conner played cajon on a few songs and she played solo on several. She has an endearing voice and bright attitude. Her stories are as much fun to listen to as Troy’s so it’s great that they play together so often. She encouraged her friends to step back from that ledge then said hey soul sister. She played a cool song called Clearer from her upcoming album that I’m anxious to hear. Wonderwall was fun, then she played one about how even the best fall down. She played one about the boy who went away to college and didn’t come back called I Miss You, then played a newer one called Anchor that is quickly becoming a favorite. The line about how they call it the real world because you’re not allowed to dream always catches me. Drops of Jupiter sounded great then she played a song about the one that got away. She sang 1 2 3 better come back to me, then wrapped her set with Landslide. I really enjoy her songs and am enjoying watching her evolve. The future is unlimited.

Apparently, I had missed Bethany’s first set, caught some of Troy’s first set, caught all of Bethany’s second set, so it was time for Troy to finish off the night. He opened with an Atlantic City/Fast Car medley, then played a beautiful version of his song Brothers. He played a new song that said something in your love feels like home. He followed with Ghosts (Of What We Used To Be) and I was in a very happy place. He played another medley of ’90’s songs and emphasized the dance with somebody Whitney inspiration that he has found. He brought up Jesse and Steve from Shake and played a song about running around this town. They capped the night with Running On Empty and the crowd was in a happy place.

I chatted briefly then took the long drive home. I missed a lot but did catch 25 songs and had a great night.

Troy Millette at Foam Brewers February 17, 2019   Leave a comment

IMG_2272

I had a great time seeing music a couple of Sundays ago at Foam Brewers. The show was set to go from 1-3 and I usually work weekends. February is a little slow in the gardening business, so I had the day off. I arrived just about showtime and got in the long line to get a beer.

Troy Millette Music opened with I’m On Fire and let it flow into a little bit of Dancing In The Dark. He followed with a cool new song about tidal waves and keeping myself from going under. Up next was the instantly recognizable sound of Mr Jones but he began singing the lyrics to So You Want To Be A Rock And Roll star to it, and made it sound great. This lasted for a moment and he played the Counting Crows song properly. His new song Magnolias was gorgeous and filled my soul. He began the next one with Atlantic City but it faded into something that faded into Fast Car. That slid into something about walking 1,000 miles for you before ending back in AC. Troy has a nice voice and is a nimble guitar player, but his in between song, or during song banter, really makes his shows shine. Ask yourself, would he really walk 1,000 miles for anyone, or just take an Uber and walk the last block? Either way, He followed with a sweet version of his song Run Away that left me smiling. Up next was a jam of ’90’s songs. I did not know most of them, and really like his shows so I can learn some of those classics that everyone else seems to know. I think there were parts where Slim Shady appeared and helped Adele cry, or something like that. Either way, the songs were really good. He told the story about being famous with long haul trucker due to his song Ghosts (Of What We Used To Be) and played a beautiful version of it. I think the next song was a Taylor Swift song, only because Troy mentioned it, then he followed with something that sounded familiar. He reworked it a bit but Omaha sounded really cool. I think the next song was about how there’s no love worth saving like one that shares your name, then he played one about getting lost in my mind. He filled my heart with joy by playing a couple of originals back to back. Home was really sweet and so was Anna-Marie. He followed with a very new original about wanting to fix this and making it real and I was in a happy place. He told a fun story about playing drunk at the Skinny Pancake the night of GPN then kicked out a fun version of Running On Empty. He announced that he had just recorded the next song with Ryan Cohen at Robot Dog Studio and played the coolest mellowest acoustic Enter Sandman that you may ever hear. I love his version so much. Brothers sounded sweet, then he competed the Crows hat trick with Round Here. Up next was another classic that had everyone in the room singing “I want it that way.” It flowed through a few more songs, and he spoke about how everyone has a little Whitney in them, then ended at the beginning. He wrapped the night with another suite of songs that started by being stuck up on some stage singing sad songs, went into Puple Rain, was forever yours faithfully for a bit, slid through a little Bohemian Rhapsody then ended with Let It Be.

I was impressed that he played a full two hour show without a break and walked out the door with a huge smile inside and out. What a great afternoon of music.

Song before: Heaven – Talking Heads

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of music. It’s been a rough year for loosing members of the Burlington community, but now 2018 is gone and 2019 is here. Let’s begin with a song about The Bhopal disaster that happened in India many years ago.

1.) Happy New Year – Ninja Custodian
2.) Super Powers – The Dead Shakers
3.) Intro/May – Adrienne Cooper Smith
4.) The Worst Part – Bethany Conner Music

That’s a lovely song from Bethany, who has been playing shows with Troy Millette lately. The song from Adrienne is from the last Robot Dog session from last year. WBKM replayed all of the sessions over New Year’s Eve and day, and it was fun to hear them again. Adrienne’s performance was so amazing. Cool song from the Shakers. Life’s been a bit rough lately and we all need to shine our super powers a little extra bright now. You can catch them tomorrow at Nectar’s. Cool song from Ninja. OK, let’s head on over to Robot Dog Studio for another cool live performance.

5.) Magnolias – Troy Millette Music
6.) Ghosts Of What We Used To Be – Troy Millette
7.) Anna Marie – Troy Millette
8.) Runaway – Troy Millette

What a great performance by Troy. Thanks to Ryan Cohen for making it sound so great, and thanks to Phoebe Zorn and Chrusty Barnacles for the video work on Magnolias. It is on YouTube now. OK, here is the next song on the Grim Work album.

9.) Jesus In Chains – Milton Busker and the Grim Work
10.) Calling Me Names – Eoin Noonan (Split Tongue Crow)
11.) We’re Finally Here – Phil Yates & The Affiliates (Chicago)
12.) Somebody Get Me A Brown Paper Bag – Jesse Taylor

Sometimes life makes you want to hide away, but following Jesse’s advice to push yourself out the door sounds great. Cool new song from Phil. I haven’t heard much from Crow for a while so it was great to get the new Eoin song. He’s such a cool singer. Great song from Milton. OK, this band have been rocking central Vermont for a couple of years.

13.) HILWYOD – The Ulloo
14.) Hollywood – Humble Hero
15.) Hollywood – Lendway
16.) What’s In California? – Josh Glass

I though that would be a fun set. It was inspired by the Ulloo song. Josh is always great. That’s a classic from Lendway. Humble Hero rock their version hard. OK, it’s been a rough couple of weeks for local Vermont legends. Let’s honor two of the best in this next set.

17.) The Secret Life Of Ann Landers – Josh Bridgman and Jason Cooley

30.) Yayo – Dirty Blondes
31.) Ornan – Dirty Blondes

I mostly knew Matthew Thorsen from hanging out at Dirty Blondes shows. We chatted a lot over the years and I always loved his gentle spirit. His passing is a huge loss for our community. The same is true for Josh Bridgman. He was a playwright and a smart genuine person that most everyone in town knew. I’m glad he left an album of spoken word art and music. Our lives are better for having those two lovely crazy people in it. I thought the piece about fiery spirits might make a nice transition. OK, here’s a brand new song from a cool band.

32.) Voyager – Smokestack Lightning
33.) Jules Rosen and Joe Steel – Brave the Vertigo

Nice rockers from Vertigo and Smokestack. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song before: Bloodletting (The Vampire Song) – Concrete Blonde

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. The skies are gray, the air is cold and the leaves are falling from the trees. Summer is gone and Halloween is almost upon us. Usually, Mr E. Ghoul crosses over to join us, but the veil is still too strong, being so many days away. I, alone, will guide you through the terror that is the Vermont music scene. Let’s begin with a song about the dead.

1.) Stardust For Dessert – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
2.) Ghosts Aren’t Free – Ballroom Sofa
3.) Release The Dead – Chin Ho
4.) Ghosts – Troy Millette Music

Thank you for reminding us of our mortality Troy. I dug up that ancient song from Chin. Chilling thought from Sofa and beautifully disturbing song from David and the band. OK, let’s get a little magical.

5.) I Put A Spell On You – Kat Wright and Marco Benevento
6.) Devil – farm
7.) A Monster’s Holiday – Matt the Gnat and the Gators
8.) Devil Knows My Name – Great Western

Is there anything scarier than the devil knowing your name? Hmm, apparently the gators prefer to celebrate their monsters. Nice attempt to outrun the devil Farm. That was a lovely spell concocted one night at Radio Bean by the dynamic duo. Here is another song that I found deeply buried.

9.) Vampyre – Dave Jarvis (Hipp Notix)
10.) Oh My God – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association
11.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara
12.) Graveyard Before Dark – Alice Austin

Such a scary song from Alice. Hana speaks of how the veil between the living and the dead is understood down south. Terrifying imagery from Sarah and a lovely oldie from Dave. Care to jam with some monsters?

13.) Halloween Jam – The Dead Shakers
14.) Nightmare On Elm Street – Savage Hen
15.) With The Dead – Vultures of Cult
16.) Full Moon Dark Places – Bull & Prairie

Vermont is full of dark places, and the shadows of the full moon only make them more terrifying. I fear the Vultures may have gotten too close to their song. Disturbing song from the Hen and a scary stream of monsters for the Dead. Speaking of death.

17.) Death Of A Barn Cat – Dirtminers
18.) Black Cat – Black Rabbit
19.) Hell Chicken – Swillbillie
20.) Dogs At The Door – Milton Busker

I hope you survived the terror of being alone, barely safe, wondering what lies beyond the door. Swillbillie are wise to make us aware of the terror wrought by chickens. Halloween was made for cats. OK, it’s time to panic.

21.) Panic – Miku Daza
22.) Ninjas VS Zombies – Phil Yates
23.) Ghostified – Persian Claws
24.) Raising The Dead – Carraway

Lovely song about zombies dancing. Terror filled song by the Claws. Phil sings of the battle between life and death and Miku rightly advises panic. This next soul seems to be trying to give up supernatural ways. Silly human.

25.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
26.) Demon Eyes – Lake Superior
27.) One More Grave – The Contrarian
28.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse
29.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland

You can always count on a ghost, even if Aaron disagrees. Lovely songs of demons from Crazy and Superior. Even one so contrary understands the power of the grave. Well, I hope you were not too scared listening to the terrifying music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

outro

Songs after – Incubus (with graveyard intro and geezabum outro) – Fish
Thugs – The Tragically Hip
Give It Up To The Night – Bad Smell
Hell Toupee – Derek Smalls

Angels And Devils – Invisible Homes
Monsters – Cold Sweat

13.) Meth Mouth – ROUGH FRANCIS
14.) My Red – The Lavas

Song before: Piano Music – Porcupine Tree

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve been enjoying the new album Hardly Electronic from this opening band, so let’s begin with some piano music.

1.) In The Key Of Me – The Essex Green
2.) When The Nights Get Long – Carraway
3.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot
4.) Adventure Safari – The Mountain Carol

It was so cool when Carol came in for a session of Live From Robot Dog Studio and instead of playing the electronic keys, Bruce played Ryan Cohen‘s sweet sounding piano. Great song from Andriana. I caught a couple of sets of her music last Friday at Red Square. She was as amazing as always. Great song and huge build from Carraway and super cool song form Essex. OK, the big event in town this weekend is Grace Potter’s Grand Point North festival. Be sure to get there early. Here are some of the great bands who are opening the show.

5.) Falter – Julia Caesar
6.) Soul No. 5 – Caroline Rose
7.) The Violent Stain Of My Bleeding Heart – Seth Yacovone Band
8.) Flaca Daza – Miku Daza
9.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls

All of those bands are going to rock GPN hard. Caroline has gotten big but spent a lot of time in town. I’m so excited for both days and will be there early. I saw Clever Girls play a brilliant show last weekend at Art Hop. This next band came on after and played a blistering show. Last week, I played the last song on The Uncanny Doom Service, so let’s begin playing MSP3 Counter Attack, song after song, week after week, until it’s wrapped up.

10.) Big Box Law Enforcement – ROUGH FRANCIS
11.) Still Life Scene – Envy
12.) Whirlpool Rider – The High Breaks
13.) Mighty Have Fallen – Barbacoa

They played a brilliant show at Robot Dog Studio last week and that song really caught me. Cool new song from the Breaks. Classic from Envy. Great song from Francis who use the new album to stare racism in the face and offer peace and love as a counter attack. This song has been running through my head lately, so hopefully it will get stuck in your too.

14.) Automatic Sweetheart – Hammydown
15.) On My Way – Hover
16.) Veratrum – Piqued
17.) Fool That I Am – Eastern Mountain Time

Cool song from a band who have lots of shows scheduled all around Vermont. I wanted to revisit the song from Piqued, since it’s so cool. I hope they stop by town soon. Classic from the ’90’s from Hover. Great song from Hammy. OK, this next artist has put out a few cool albums but when he plays with his band he sounds just a little different. Here’s a song form his upcoming album.

18.) Gravity – Milton Busker & The Grim Work
19.) Loser – SWALE
20.) Underheard – Ivamae
21.) Silent River – Steady Betty

Betty’s songs always put me in a happy place. I hope it does the same for you. Great song from Ivamae. When I think of happy songs with depressing lyrics, I think of Swale. I think Milton is proving himself just as able. OK, last night I finally caught up with this singer in a movie theater at The Double E. This song digs into the pros and cons of life in America in a visceral way. The song after is the story of a kid asking mom why she would bring a child into this world. I think you’ll like the answer.

22.) Which America – Jason Baker
23.) Love – Hana Zara
24.) The Divine Feminine – Ouzkxqlzn
25.) Super Powers – The Dead Shakers

I love that song from the Shakers. I caught Lauren Costello playing at Art Hop, and despite calling her band an unpronounceable name, she is completely amazing. Hana asks mom why she was brought into the world. Mom says to fill you with love and to send you into the world to spread it. Great, if somewhat harsh, song form Jason. OK, he finished this year’s library tour, but has begun to book next years. What a cool way to support Vermont’s libraries.

27.) This City – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
28.) Give It Up To The Night – Bad Smell
29.) Infinity Pools – The Smittens
30.) Ghosts – Troy Millette Music
31.) Rainy Alley – Totally Submerged

Wishing the best for the people in the Carolina’s. Cool song from Submerged. Great song from Troy. I’m loving the new Smittens album City Rock Dove and expect to keep diving deeper. Super cool song from Smell and great song from David. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

outro

Songs after
Internal Exile/Market Square Heroes – Fish
Daredevil – The Tragically Hip
Sea Of Red – Judas Priest
Time For Bedlam – Deep Purple
Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat
A Saucerful Of Secrets – Pink Floyd
Watcher Of The Skies – Genesis
ME 262 (live) – Blue Oyster Cult

23.) Big Box Law Enforcement – Rough Francis
24.) Blue Lights – Sink or Swim
