great photo from DylansI want to wish you a terrific New Year.

We’ve had a great 2013 with shows in Detroit, northern Michigan and more.  Some of our favorites included Callahan’s Music Hall, our CD Release party at the Majestic Cafe with WDET-FM 101.9 and Ann Delisi’s Essential Music, Bachelor’s in Keego Harbor, Metro Times Blowout, the Magic Bag, the Mackinac Island Music Festival and Detroit’s Winter Magic Series with great crowds.

I was also honored to appear again with Patti Smith and her Band, on guitar and vocals at Pattis’ sold-out show at the Majestic Theatre in Detroit on September 7, 2013, performing on “People Have the Power,” “Banga,” and “Talkin’ ’bout my Generation.”

We received seven Detroit Music Award nominations in 2013 which included our video for “Promised Land.”  Thank you for the many nominations and terrific wins we have received for the last several years.

AND – The Carolyn Striho Group’s new CD “Word Attack” and Scott Dailey’s new CD “So Much Time to Burn” are available now from ITunes, Amazon and CD Baby or you can order directly from us in here or at:  www.reverbnation.com/carolynstriho ; http://www.reverbnation.com/scottdailey4 or at http://www.cdbaby.com/Search/c3RyaWhv/0

I have been working with Chicago filmmaker Mary Sommers and her Chicago/Detroit crew on a new film  – “Tough Luck “– it portrays Detroit artists and civic leaders and also features our music in the soundtrack – look for a Summer 2014 Release date.  This is a great film with a real positive energy for the city. More news and film trailer soon!

We also appear in the film “Motor City Music” a European film, in a live performance of our crowd-favorite, “Enchante” at the Magic Stick.  The film is being screened in France and Germany – and in several film festivals in 2014:   http://www.arte.tv/fr/detroit-michigan-motor-city-music/7493432,CmC=7493316.html

We have been honored to have played some of the best festivals anywhere in the world.   With new songwriting and working on the book, I plan to release another new CD with new material but also with never-released gems.  I’m also going to include some hard-to-get songs from my catalog.

Living with this new major health challenge, we had to cancel out of several great shows – which is a first. But we will be back soon, traveling again.
Thanks for the support, Happy New Year, good health and love,
