Kevie is from the Outer Hebrides, in the north west of Scotland,UK. He started podcasting with TuxJam back in 2011 and followed this by co-hosting tech-themed, discussion show Crivins along with Gordon Sinclair. A full time Linux user, currently using Debian as his distro of choice, and a keen promoter of unknown artists/bands, especially those who release their music under a Creative Commons license, this led Kevie to starting the CCJam community podcast. Always keen to spread the word on Creative Commons music and open source projects, Kevie has appeared as a guest on the Bugcast, Hacker Public Radio, Music Manumit Podcast, Rathole Radio and TINT.
Kevie introduces the listeners to a band that may be all but forgotten in the Jamendo archives: Blackpaper. They mix rock with electronic to give an upbeat selection of instrumental tracks. The tracks included in this episode are:
In episode 69 of CCJam, Kevie introduces the listeners to Teresa. Very little information seems to be available about this talented lady. I have discovered the majority of her music on Jamendo, she appears in a few YouTube videos but little more than that. The links I have are:
After a brief interlude, CCJam returns in time for the tail end of the summer (in the UK anyway). In episode 59, Kevie introduces the listeners to Tamara Laurel, an American singer-songwriter who lists herself as a perfect blend of Americana, Folk, and Alt. Country. Her music is available on Jamendo, SoundCloud and iTunes. Her merchandise and physical CDs are available from DistrictLines. She is also active on both Facebook and Twitter.
In episode 55 of CCJam, Kevie introduces the listeners to Russian rock band Rubbish Rabbits. After discovering them on their Jamendo page, Kevie scoured the web but couldn’t find much about the band, outside of the fact that they have a VK page. The tracks included in this episode are:
Following an extended holiday, Kevie returns to the show to bring the rocking delights of Lisbon based band Neon Sun to the CCJam listeners. They have a web presence on Jamendo, Bandcamp, Facebook, Spotify, SoundCloud and YouTube. Sadly, at this present time, there does not seem to be a way to support them financially, as their downloads on Bandcamp are free and a search on itunes proved fruitless.
Edit: upon further searching their music can be purchased on Amazon.
Freshly bronzed from the heat of the Scottish summer sunshine, Kevie stops out of the blazing sun to record episode 46 of CCJam. With the Olympic games in Rio ongoing at the time of recording it is only fitting that the featured artist is Golden Duck Orchestra from Brazil. The band are active on Facebook, Instagram,Twitter and YouTube. They have just released their first self titled album which can be purchased from their CDBaby, Soundcloud and Jamendo.
