Xochitl on Listening Lyrics Jun 5th, 2015

Xochitl (pronounced "so-chee") is a 22 year old singer-songwriter born & raised in Sacramento, CA. Her musical journey began in womb; her parents met in church playing music and would place headphones over her mothers pregnant belly blasting Mozar or Beatles. Growing up, Xochitl was surrounded by music and decided to take it seriously after attending college and deciding it was not the right path. At age 19, she took her first songs and started playing open mics and practicing every day. As of 2015, Xochitl has toured the east & west coast, held the cover of local music newspaper "Submerge" and preformed in hundreds of venues. Her new EP "Lion Heart" is available worldwide and she is currently touring the entire west coast.

Listening Lyrics Apr 3rd, 2015, Pieter's SHAZAM list show

kdrt, listening lyrics, ben sollee, pieter pastoorHere is an hour featuring songs I have Shazamed - Shazam uses a smartphone or Mac's built-in microphone to gather a brief sample of audio being played. It creates an acoustic fingerprint based on the sample, and compares it against a central database for a match. If it finds a match, it sends information such as the artist, song title, and album back to the user.

What can I say; I LOVED THIS SHOW!

Additionally, I'll let you in on a secret, this was the first time that I listened to, not one, but two complete Rap songs -- and enjoyed them. :)


Loved the show and thoroughly enjoyed Cory. Tell him what Michael J Fox once said; "I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business."  He was excellent.

the October 3rd show was way too short. What a mellow and superbly classy hour that just blew by. Thanks!


Kind words from a kind brother - thank you

Underground Grandpa rocks!!

Thanks ed
