30A Songwriter Radio promotes local talent

Published: Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 12:57 PM.

30A Songwriter Radio is a free online radio, that anyone can stream through their computer or smartphone. The website is also a great resource for both musicians and music lovers. Ireland was inspired by all the websites that promote events, shopping and dining and used that model to highlight singers and songwriters of this area.


"I can't think of any place that's as small as us that has as much talent," Ireland said.


Like any music lover, Ireland finds it hard to pick his favorite among the local talent, but praises the music of Zack Rosicka, Forrest Williams Band and Dannica Lowery. All of the area musicians are unique and uniquely talented, Ireland said.


It was in mid-1980s when Ireland began exploring the music scene and becoming a regular at venues like Shorty's and Pandora's of Grayton Beach. Now he hopes to promote those businesses that lend their stages to up-and-coming musicians, through his events calendar and businesses listing on the site.
