Live – UnUrban Cafe – Feb 21

We had a very fun 3 song set at UnUrban Cafe in Santa Monica. Loved seeing friends and paring our show down to a bare minimum.

Snowflakes On TV

Snowflakes members are proud to lend our talents as part of the house band for Highway To Hollywood, a pilot for a TV talk show. Martin is the MD (musical director). It was great fun to shoot the show. It’s all done in a giant green screen studio at LA Castle Studios. Martin wrote the song. Natasha is on bass. Kerry Crutchfield is on drums. George G. Woo is on keyboards. This group is officially known as Martin Blasick And The Highway To Hollywood Band.


Live At Cork Lounge

We played an unexpected set at Cork Lounge. It was a thrill to play with Natasha’s sister, Marina, in attendance. We’d just recorded a version of INXS’s “Beautiful Girl” with Marina on lead vocals. We found ourselves really enjoying the music and getting back up on stage.

Beautiful Girl (feat. Marina Babenko)

The very first Snowflakes song available on iTunes has just gone live. It’s a cover of INXS’ Beautiful Girl featuring Marina Babenko on vocals. While we work on our album, we were blessed with a visit from Marina, Natasha’s sister. Marina was practicing the guitar and mentioned Beautiful Girl was a song she’d like to learn. It was a magical evening. The track was done that night and the vocals were tracked the next day. We all had a wonderful experience, and wanted to share that joy. It was an unexpected collaboration that we are glad came to be.

Imagine – Our Cover Of The John Lennon Song

We pulled together a slideshow video for our cover of John Lennon’s “Imagine”. We played so many great shows last year and have been chipping away at our upcoming album. In the meantime the meaning of this song was speaking to us. We weren’t planning on recording a cover. But the spirit struck and we are pleased to share John Lennon’s prayer for peace and photos from the fun gigs we’ve played.

Snowflakes Podcast Available On iTunes

Maybe it’s no big deal to the experienced podcasters, but we’re tickled silly that iTunes carries our podcast:

Snowflakes Podcast on iTunes

It’s just a pretty cool world that lets us share what’s up via iTunes’ really big umbrella. No money changes hands. They incorporate the RSS info into their podcast store but don’t host the media. That stays of our server. It’s a win-win. It’s easy to subscribe from the iTunes store.

I (Martin here) was slow to learn how to enjoy podcasts. Once I finally forced myself to study my iTunes for 5 minutes, I got tons of pleasure from podcasts that I’ve now followed for a couple of years. One of them is nearing its 200th episode. And the shows I listen to are never never never going to be on a mainstream outlet.

Did I dream that I’d be a podcaster? Or that Snowflakes would podcast? Never once until we attended the Los Angeles Podcast Festival recently. Now that the RSS thingy is worked out I believe our next Snowflakes episode will automatically appear on iTunes. Time to check the microphones…

 

An Intimate Night With Snowflakes – Nov 16, 2013

We’ll be playing Venice, CA’s The Love Dome on Nov 16.

“Doors open at 9:00pm, music starts promptly at 10:00pm. Immerse yourself in hours of acoustic tunes with Snowflakes. Cash donation bar, no outside beverages please. Artist Q&A after the show. Only 40 tickets available. Pre-sale only.”

We are so looking forward to this. It seems almost like a house concert, which we’ve yet to play. There’s an hour of music, an hour of mingling and then another, shorter set. It sounds like a perfectly lovely evening to us. All the details are on our gig calender Tickets are being sold through EventBrite. The Love Dome is a westside institution.
