Safe Tuesday everyone ♫
We are sorry to announce that The Dirty Grind Independent Artist Community, Radio Grind, The Dirty Blog and our satellite locations will permanently close after shows on the 21st of December of this year, 2022.
We have enjoyed hosting the project for over 11 years. Ian and I can no longer justify the great personal financial expense and time it takes to continue. We will miss you all and cherish your friendships.
Of course, I (Lisa) will continue to retain the copyrights and IP on the The Dirty Grind Independent Artist Community, Radio Grind and all associated branding.
We deeply appreciate our association over the years and will remember this time fondly.
Hugs and love,
Lisa and Ian
Reno Jones’ singing and guitar playing defies all expectations. “A voice like golf balls in a dryer.”, and “You call this music?”, are just a few of the things critics have said about Reno Jones’ musical stylings. Mixing it all up in a blender, Reno Jones covers songs from the 1920’s to the 2020’s; from Louis Armstrong to Foo Fighters to Tom Waits to Radiohead and even originals, Reno adds his unique spin to all genres.
Clairede Dirval is a great performer, an exceptional musician: she has a big voice, she has a big laugh, she has a big heart. Her playlist is huge and offers something for everybody. Her gigs are always spectacular; she is one of the hottest, most dynamic, most wild and most soulful performers in SL. Her RL career as a road musician for over 25 years is a huge benefit for all her gigs. She is just good! Simple as that.
Steady as a heartbeat, that’s how her guitar style’s been described: rhythmic, percussive, and punctual, with a voice like rose petals steeped in bourbon. Folk, Blues, Traditional and original music, served up in her own special style!
From Blues to Bluegrass, Beatles to Bach, Grateful Dead to Van Morrison and all the music inbetween, Twostep Spiritweaver weaves his way through all of it. He may play 30 minutes of pure blues followed by 30 minutes of sweet ballads and love songs, or he might just start playing to see where the music takes him.
Mandala, a Rio de Janeiro Brazilian, loves to entertain her audience. She is a guitarist and singer and her vocal style is Bossa Nova: one of the best-known Brazilian music styles abroad, a lyrical fusion of samba and jazz. However, her musical style doesn’t stop there – it includes Blues, Rock, Pop and of course Romantic Songs. She is multi-lingual in her songs: Portuguese, Spanish, French and English. When you hear a tune or song you like, she loves you to sing together with her!
Corwyn Allen is a folk singer and guitarist who’s performed for more years than he cares to count. He brings to Second Life a varied and sometimes eclectic mix of American, Irish, Scottish, and English folk music, both traditional and modern. Corwyn will amaze and captivate you, sharing stories and songs that bind us all together.
Jamba LosAngeles performs music that beautifully haunts your heart with a smile. He plays a twelve string acoustic guitar and harmonica. His music has been heard regularly in Second Life since the beginning of SL time. He covers songs that you have heard before, but in a unique way!
