EP 95 | Andy Shauf-Neon Skyline


Andy Shauf’s new album The Neon Skyline presented in full storytelling concept.

The interconnected songs were all written, performed, arranged and produced by Andy, and follow a simple plot: the narrator goes to his neighborhood dive, finds out his ex is back in town, and she eventually shows up.

Some of his characters can be found in his last album The Party.  All are sympathetic people who share countless inside jokes, shots, and life-or-death musings when the night gets hazy.

It just happens to be one of the best albums I’ve heard in quite a while.  The delight in the songs may not reveal themselves on first listen but the second time..the puzzle starts to show itself.

Please enjoy this chat with a true star in the making…if he wants to go down that road.

EP 94 | Daryl Cloran Shakespeare and the Beatles


William Shakespeare’s As you like it has been called his Romantic Comedy (RomCom).

It’s got laughs,   love and rejection, women dressed as men, men dressed as wrestlers.

And Director Daryl Cloran was challenged to weave  the magic of The Beatles into the dialogue.

Instead of soliloquies..we get I am the Walrus.

25  Beatles songs, William Shakespeare AND wrestling.  Let’s go.

Opens tonight at The Citadel in Edmonton

“As You Like” by RMTC and Citadel performed at the John Hirsch Mainstage as part of the master playwrights festival.

“Like it? I loved it. This one’s a hit.” –  Georgia Straight

EP 92 | Colin Linden and Tom Wilson


Although they each have successful solo careers, Colin Linden,  Tom Wilson, and road warrior  Stephen Fearing together are Blackie and The Rodeo Kings.

In 2020 the boys celebrate being together and making music for 25 years.

How did they kick off 2020?

Jan 4 they played The  Ryman Theatre, home of The Grand Ol’ Opry.

Stephen Fearing packed his bags and went touring his solo album  The Unconquerable Past!

Colin won a Grammy for Keb Mo’s Oklahoma,  which Colin co-produced in his home studio in Nashville.
Just days ago  Tom Wilson gets a Juno nomination for Lee Harvey Osmond.

And Blackie releases King of this Town.

The coming tour may take the entire year!

What started off in  1996 as a one-off tribute album in celebration of the music of Willie P Bennett has evolved into 25 years of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings.

Quite simply one of Canada’s finest bands.  Ever!!

Enjoy the stories!

EP 90 | Daniel Lanois


I used to see musician Daniel Lanois at least once a year as he toured Canada with various bands..pedal steel was his specialty.

I can’t begin to explain the joy I had watching his career explode.

From his music-filled home growing up in Hull, Que to  his Mothers move to Hamilton Ontario

Daniel and his brother Bob were born to play and sing.

They built a small studio in her basement and that became their light at the end of the tunnel.

Daniel produced enough music with local bands that the one and only Brian Eno asked to meet him and they started working together.

This lead to Grammy-winning albums with U2, Bob Dylan plus  Peter Gabriel, Robbie Robertson, Emmylou  Harris, Neil Young, The Neville Brothers, Willie Nelson.

Think about the body of work…Unforgettable Fire, Joshua Tree, Oh Mercy, Time out of Mind, Wrecking Ball, So & Us just as a starter.

-Needless to say, I hadn’t seen Daniel for many years – 21 to be exact – when I found him backstage at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival of a couple of years ago.

We started trying to figure out where we last saw each other…

It was a studio in Calgary recording a charity single called Land – with The Tragically Hip, Midnight Oil, Crash Vegas, Hothouse Flowers, etc.

The single was Land – to bring awareness to clear cut logging in  Clayoquot  Sound.

Let’s meet one of the world’s greatest producers Daniel Lanois backstage in Edmonton.
