STILL BURNIN' wins a RadioIndy Grindy Award!!

"Still Burnin'" by John Batdorf and Mark Rodney (Folk Artist from Los Angeles, California(CA))

RadioIndy is pleased to present John Batdorf and Mark Rodney with a GrIndie Award for their CD "Still Burnin'"
"Still Burnin" is an enjoyable acoustic rock album brought to you by John Batdorf and Mark Rodney. These guys have a long history in the music world and their experience is evident with this collection of upbeat tunes. John has a great rock voice, a great range and his performances are noteworthy. Mark is the ideal partner for John. He is a wonderful player, great arranger and adds dimension to the vocals. Together they give you a great bunch of catchy, acoustic songs with a timeless quality. Highlights include "Me and my Guitar," with a beautiful melody, nice guitar changes and a standout chorus. "One Day" is a jazzy little number featuring more great performances and a hopeful message. "Oh Can You Tell Me" is an intimate number with a nice guitar progression and a warm vibe. If you enjoy outstanding singer/songwriters and acoustic pop/rock, you'll love this wonderful CD.
