Admirals - Amidst the Blue

Sometimes it helps to not be very good.

Some of the best albums and artists were born out of happy accidents owed to varying degrees of early suckage — the perfect note or chord for a song found by missing the one you are aiming for, failed mimicry of an idol bearing something entirely new and great instead.

Kierston White - Don't Write Love Songs

The Tequila Songbirds have become just as beloved as about any group around these parts. And how could they not?

Featuring a revolving cast of the Sooner State’s most badass female performers, it’s a power hour of some of the best songwriting coming out of central Oklahoma. Sure, they might not technically be family, but they are clearly a band of sisters all the same, bonded by the same brand of whiskey running through their veins.

Depth & Current - Dysrhythmia

"Overproduced" is a term thrown around all too indiscreetly nowadays, usually applied when the thing that sticks out about a song or album is how it sounds rather than how it is constructed. Yet some of the most compelling albums ever crafted embodied a certain aesthetic that was just as skillfully and meticulously put together as any Bob Dylan or Miles Davis record — which is to say production is as crucial to our enjoyment of music as much as anything else; it's also the most overlooked.

Weak Knees - “IceBevo”

Indie rock has been in a good place as of late. Not caring about being cool is the new cool, and a couple of dudes on guitar, bass and drums can make catchy, earworm songs without being armed to the gills with computer software and vintage synthesizers.

Kyle Reid & the Low Swinging Chariots - “When I Was Young”

Every artist should be the star of their own creative life, which makes Kyle Reid’s steps out of the shadows of the many ensembles and supporting roles he has played in Oklahoma bands over the years to front and center on stage feel like a just journey.

When vibrant singer/songwriter Antje Duvekot took the stage last year in Norman's Winter Wind concert series, things weren't exactly going her way. The weather was bad, she was exhausted from traveling, and her guitar was lost at the airport.

But the German-born performer took it all in stride, borrowed a guitar from one of the locals, and put on a fantastic show for a capacity crowd at the Performing Arts Studio in the historic Santa Fe Train Depot.

"I loved my trip to Oklahoma, even though my guitar didn't make it," said Duvekot. "I can't wait to come back. I was just telling my press agent that two of my favorite places from my tour last year were Oklahoma and Canada."

WINNING STREAK
The Winter Wind crowd must have loved her, too, for Duvekot was invited to return to Norman for Sunday's encore performance. And this time, she'll have a new guitar with her: a Gibson Hummingbird.

"I do worry about taking it on the plane, though," she said.

Duvekot, who now lives in Boston, has big-league folk credentials:
" She won the prestigious Kerrville New Folk Competition;
" The Boston Globe named her debut studio CD, "Big Dream Boulevard," as the best folk album of the year; and
" Bank of America recently used one of her songs for a commercial.

"That was quite a surprise," said Duvekot.

And it didn't hurt financially either, she admitted. "Jim Chastain
