Just a note for all Local Love artists and loyal Local Love supporters: I will be on vacation for part of this week into next. I'll be gone from Wednesday (8/10) thru Monday (8/15). With that being said, there will be no Local Love this Thursday night (8/11). Be sure to keep it tuned to Z with Bailey!

My theory is that if you've lived in La Crosse, written/created music and brought that music to life in La Crosse, then moved away to share your masterpiece(s) with the rest of the world. . .You're considered an alumni for Local Love. Nick Shattuck is a prime example of what I'm talking about. Originating from La Crosse many years ago, Nick now resides in L.A. and continues to create tracks you wouldn't expect to come from someone from such a small city. Nick's music is comparable to Flume, Bishop Briggs and Louis the Child.. his voice is very soulful, and almost personally reminds me of Passenger. Nick recently partnered with producer, J. Roosevelt. Together, they took one of Nick's originals and really brought it to life with a really subtle EDM feel. Be sure to check out his latest single "The Storm". Nick and J. Roosevelt are currently still working together on creating and releasing more tracks! Be sure to follow them on Facebook, and check out their websites for their latest projects and releases.
Featured artist for 7/7/16
He's back! I guess you could say it's been a good year or two since Misgenre Mixtape has played anything LIVE off of his mixtape.. .In fact, he could be named a veteran of the Local Love feature, as he had his music played on Local Love back when Ballzer did nights! Luckily, you've got chance to catch him live in a couple weeks. Acoustic pop....soaring melodies... it's like we're back in the early 2000s! See Misgenre Mixtape live at the Popcorn Tavern on 7/22 (2016), and get a taste of what the La Crosse music scene once held. Just a note: he'll pleasure your eardrums, but you can't take him home. Follow him on Facebook and tune in tomorrow night (7/7) at 10 for Local Love as we pull a couple songs from the dust and spin them over the air!

SChoppa is another Hip Hop artist rising in the La Crosse music scene. He actually began writing music while in 8th grade, and after years of hard work and dedication, SChoppa was able to create a name for himself and release his first Mixtape "Real Life Hitters" in early 2013. Three years later, January of 2016 marked the release of SChoppa's first completed and released studio album "Life In the Struggle". You can learn more about SChoppa and hear his Mixtape and Album at his Reverbnation page or even pick up a physical copy of his album at Deaf Ear Records in downtown La Crosse.
