THE NEW MUSIC FOOD TRUCK PAYS TRIBUTE TO FEMALE ARTISTS IN HONOR OF INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
WITH SPECIAL GUEST AND ROCK N’ ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE
NANCY WILSON OF HEART
MARCH 2 – MARCH 8
With a desire to promote and expose independent and alternative artists The New Music Food Truck debuted their first show in May 2018. With a background in radio and production, the show is the brainchild of music lovers and brothers Jim Edwards and Aaron Zytle. Behind the mic, you’ll find host Zytle showcasing in-depth and fresh interviews with artists on each show with Edwards producing. “The new music food truck is a one-hour weekly new music showcase for alternative and indie music worldwide. As program director at KRXP in Colorado Springs, each week I’d hear fresh new music that I really wanted to play but had no space in my programming to get it on. So along with my brother Jim as a producer, we created The New Music Food Truck. It’s a weekly showcase of hot, fresh, new music from around the world in a hip food truck format!” — Aaron Zytle Host & Program/Music Director
With hot and fresh new music each week The New Music Food Truck can be heard worldwide. The NMFT is currently carried on 31 radio stations, as a podcast on all major platforms like Spotify and Apple, and online 24/7 at www.newmusicfoodtruck.com.
On the menu for the week on March 2 through March 8 is a tribute to female artists in honour of International Women’s Day. The show features new music from Arlo Parks, Cloe Wilder, The Staves, The Blossom, JPOLAND, Dessa, Flock of Dimes, Ella K Sol, Suzi Quatro, Deap Valley, Ora the Molecule, and Sophia McGlew with a special interview with Nancy Wilson of Heart. “It’s tough to get your music heard on the radio when your independent and even harder for women in a male-dominated industry. The New Music Food Truck showcases independent music and with so much of it being created by women, we felt their music deserved an even brighter spotlight. International Women’s Day is the perfect time to dedicate the full hour of our show to some of the amazing music created by women today!” — Jim Edwards Executive Producer/Marketing Director
