This week we’ve been working on getting back on track with releasing podcasts + a few other things. Yesterday Rob and I recorded a podcast over the phone with a talented artist from Quebec we met during our time at AMP Camp. His music is blues/folk/rock and has a rockabilly vintage feel, much like his fashion sense. It was great talking to him, reconnecting and listening to his songs. Stay tuned next week to hear more about this artist (we’ll tell you who it is!). Rob and I have also reconnected with another talented AMP Camp artist named Brad Bellegard, from the hip hop group “The Local Onlyz.” We’ve been collaborating on a song with him and have been having a lot of fun doing it. We look forward to getting back into the studio soon to wrap up recording bass, keys, and backup vocals on our album, too. This weekend Rob and I will be seeing our fam over Easter dinner and plan to eat a lot of good things….
Gillian and Robert catch up on this episode’s podcast and talk about what they’ve been up to individually and as a band. Conversation covered includes: Rob’s New York trip, concert going, and the recording of the band’s second album.
Last week we spoke with Jett Pace of music project Old Man Canyon, about creativity and life, on Meet the Collective Podcast. In my living room over coffee and cookies Jett, born and raised in BC in the beautiful mountains of Lynn Valley, described Old Man Canyon as “basically a collaboration between all the different sounds I’ve loved from my past merged into one.” Jett’s first musical endeavours started in Hip Hop and classical training on the cello. His album Phantoms and Friends, recorded with producer Dave Meszaros, over a six month period in 2012, has been circulating rapidly and getting the attention of many. Music on the album has been featured on both Showtime’s Shameless, as well as MTV’s Awkward, and USA Network’s Suits. We had a good time talking to him.
On this episode’s Meet the Collective Podcast we talk with the Artistic Director of Public Dreams, Matthew Bissett about the many magical events Public Dreams puts on, as well as the current state of the organization.
