Denver Artist Improv in the Top 10 for 93.3 KTCL's Hometown

Improv's "Miss Hedonist" has been selected as one of the Top 10 in 93.3 KTCL's Hometown for the Holidays. This is the same program that has helped many local musicians receive national attention, and he shares the excitement with his fans to hear Miss Hedonist on 93.3 KTCL starting today through Wednesday, December 17th. Improv has been a driving force in the Colorado music scene for years, and is honored to be part of Hometown for the Holidays this year.

Improv will nationally release his debut album Omotion on January 20, 2009, bringing more change than expected. The sound of the album hits many spectrums and emotions, with songs stemming from a blues-driven area of hip-hop, to classic funky hip-hop, to a "trilogy" track (Demons). The majority of the album was produced, written, recorded, and mixed entirely by Improv. An album release party is slated for Saturday, January 31, at Hodi's Half Note in Fort Collins, CO.

In November 2008, Improv won the regional Scribble Jam Production Battle and went on to compete in the finals. He has produced for numerous artists, performed on stages across the state, and has headlined multiple shows. Omotion tour dates are TBD.
