On Repeat Podcast Episode 5: Aly Tadros 

The latest episode of my podcast “On Repeat” is now up (listen below or go to episode here: http://bit.ly/Y6frn2)

This month features a song by Chloe Charles (Toronto) that is guaranteed to get stuck in your head, a melancholy song from Corinna Rose (Montreal), a jealous anthem from Mieka Pauley (New York), and several great songs from featured artist Aly Tadros (Brooklyn), including a sweet ukulele tune that is one of the catchiest you’ll ever hear.

For the feature interview, I had the chance to chat with Brooklyn based singer-songwriter Aly Tadros about life as an independent musician, her fast rise in the industry, her many travels around the world, and about her new album which is garnering buzz from the likes of MTV, Paste Magazine, and American Songwriter. My goal with the podcast is to combine great conversation with great music, and I think this one really achieved that. Hope you enjoy it:

On Repeat Podcast Episode 4: Lindy Vopnfjord 

The latest episode of my podcast “On Repeat” is now up (listen below).

A big thanks to Sasha Endoh Design for the awesome new logo for my podcast. This month features several goosebumps-inducing songs, including by JP Hoe, who was my favorite artist from the Folk Alliance Conference, as well as songs by Rob Szabo, Major Maker, and Lindy.

For the feature interview, I had the chance to chat with singer-songwriter Lindy Vopnfjord. In this incredibly fun conversation, we discussed Lindy’s Icelandic roots, Icelandic delicacies like rotten shark and blackened sheep face, Lindy’s height, and of course, his amazing music career which includes 8 albums, touring as a child in his parents’ band, and a few major label record deals along the way. Great episode, I really enjoyed putting this one together:

On Repeat Podcast Episode 3: The Franco Proietti Morph-tet 

In the latest episode of my podcast “On Repeat”, I play one of my favourite songs from the last 3 years by Vancouver band Brasstronaut, my favourite song from the last 3 weeks by a Montreal band called Sweet Talking Liars, as well as music by Ember Swift, and my featured guest The Franco Proietti Morph-tet.

In the feature interview, I spoke with Franco Proietti about his funk/jazz troupe, The Morph-tet.
Franco discusses life as an independent musician, including living in the shadow of past projects, frustrations with industry gatekeepers, and taking things into his own hands by starting a music festival. It was a conversation, and his experiences are ones that all musicians can no doubt relate to.
