Hello, fellow local music lovers of The Current!

With sadness (and excitement), I announce that after nearly four-and-a-half years as the Duluth Local Show host, I will be leaving The Current at the end of June.

Much of what made me qualified to bring you the best of what the North Shore has to offer came from years of working as Ellipsis, posting daily about happenings in Duluth’s music and art scenes, and other community events. In November, this once-side-project-turned-business of mine is turning 10 and I am excited for the chance to dedicate more of my time to promoting local music and curating my own shows. 

And while I will miss being able to share the music and events happening in the Twin Ports with the Current’s audience, I am grateful for all of the Homegrown, Festiversary, Lake Ave Live, etc. shows that I have done. The Duluth music scene is so near and dear to my heart, with such an amazing variety of bands and genres. I look forward to continuing to show my love for it through Ellipsis and my other projects.

My last show will be at 8 p.m. on Sunday, June 25. I will bring back my “Six Degrees of Duluth Music” — where each band leads into the next by at least one band member. Because as the joke goes, “In Duluth, if you’re in one band, you’re in five.”

I will also close out my last show with the debut song off of AfroGeode & the Gemstones’ new album. A dear friend of mine, Diona Johnson, AKA AfroGeode, passed away in April. She never got the chance to hear the new songs that she worked so hard on get played on the radio. I am honored to end my time at The Current with her voice.
