Yep, I got lots out of this Chicago trip. Ya’ know, the French pronounce it “she-kah-go.” Hmm… what does it mean?
Alex is sort of a one-man band and calls his project “Rare Candy.” He’s got some pretty diverse influences behind him.
I got a chance to interview this aspiring musician at Evolution Music Store where he celebrated the release of his first CD: “Cream Soda.” Take a lookey at the vid. below–>
Here’s more of “Yeti” and a singer-songwriter whose name I missed. So sorry!

Yeti! At Evolution Music Store in Chicago.
Nameless singer-songwriter! Please someone send me his name so I can give him credit. At Evolution Music Store in Chicago.
Stay inTUNED. There’s more Chicago road trip music video coming tomorrow!
