There were many exciting moments at the Mayne Stage Show on February 12, where CAUDog Records presented album releases for Liz Chidester and CLEEMANN. Here’s some highlights:
Opener Daniel Connolly wowed the room with his renditions of original tunes that carry the flame of a Neil Young vibe, yet are all his own. The room fell silent with listening ears as he and vocalist Melanie Budd shared their talents. We look forward to hearing more from both of these artists.
Liz Chidester performed wonderfully, along with violinist Kristina Priceman and Percussionist Meg Thomas. Her songs from People Pumping Pedals soared in the acoustic space of Mayne Stage and every note solidified her standing as one of the best new talents in Chicago.
CLEEMANN knocked us out with his genius pop music. We are very excited to be able to showcase a musician of remarkable talent on an international stage!
A good time was had by all, including a special thanks to Jen Reilly and Ed Bluma, as well as the band Scotch Hollow for performing in Act One Pub!
CAUDog Records would like to congratulate Ellis Clark (CAUDog Records Producer and Artist) as well as Phil Angotti on their recent appearance on 93.1FM XRT. The pair spoke with the infamous Terry Hemmert, the host of the station’s Breakfast with the Beatles program, and host on weekdays 10am-1pm.
Jeff Brown is wrapping up an Acoustic EP with Engineer Barrett Tasky in the Workshop Jones Studio.
In addition, Jeff is working on a music video idea where fans can help. Jeff says…
“I want your happiness. Sort of. If you get the chance, before February 15th, I want you to send me a photo of one thing that makes you happy. Be as specific or as general or as abstract as you want. That awesome sunrise? That adorable puppy? You and your best friend? A selfie of yourself after you look in the mirror and exclaim, “Holy crap, I’m hotter than normal today!” All of that.
I’m turning them all into album art and a music video.
Doesn’t need to be hi-res or anything, but try to keep them over 500×500. After all, I want your photos to look quality too.

Thank you all in advance. I’m excited to make all of you a part of my upcoming release!
Everyone at CAUDog Records encourages you to send in a picture to add to this unique and creative video. Don’t miss your chance to be part of it!
