A few months back, 20 year-old Austin musician Max Frost landed the #1 song on The Hype Machine - a site that collects and ranks the most popular songs on the web. By now, over 300,000 people have listened to his latest single, "White Lies," on SoundCloud and all those plays caught the attention of Atlantic Records. Last month, Frost officially signed to the label.

READ: Blues On The Green Headliner Bob Schneider's Songwriting Game
7/1/2013 4:12:00 PM
Sunday, a piece I wrote about Bob Schneider's songwriting game appeared in the Texas edition of the New York Times.
The story, "Take a Phrase, Wrap It in a Song, E-Mail It on Friday" is available HERE. Schnedier has been playing the game since 2001. It involves an invitation-only e-mail list that challenges musicians to turn in a new song every Friday. The song has to incorporate a preselected term or phrase. Most of Schnedier's songs, including all but one song on his new Burden Of Proof album, come from the game.
Bob plays our next Blues On The Green on July 10 in Zilker Park.
