We've got plenty of Canadian Music Week content coming your way in the next few weeks, but this is where it all starts.
Our two musical interviewees - Halifax rock outfit Gloryhound and Hamilton, ON songstress Terra Lightfoot - are performing at this year's edition of CMW. The former dropped their latest disc, Loaded Gun, produced by the one and only Garth Richardson (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against The Machine), last year, and since they've hit the road with the likes of Deep Purple, Theory of a Deadman, and many more top-tier touring acts. As for Lightfoot, in addition to her work with Dinner Belles, she's been amassing plenty of attention for her solo material and is directly supporting Daniel Lanois at his sure-to-sell-out CMW showcase at the iconic Horseshoe Tavern. Keep an eye for both.
And finally, to prep us for the big closing weekend of CMW, we speak with festival director Justin Kwan about the new and special initiatives planned for this year's edition. Enjoy!
It's a pleasure having I Mother Earth's Brian Byrne on the show, especially since we get to chat about the band's upcoming appearance at the Unison Jam on May 6th at the Phoenix Concert Theatre. The money raised during the initiative, which also features the likes of Finger Eleven, Kim Mitchell, k-os, Jason McCoy, The Trews, and many others, will go to the Unison Benevolent Fund and help those in the music industry during their time of need.
As for IME, they're currently promoting their hot new single, "The Devil's Engine" at radio. Fans will also have a chance to hear it from the stage during some summer performances, including a slot at WTFest in Brantford, ON on June 13th.
We also have singer/songwriter/guitarist Salvatore Costa on the show, speaking about his project Smashing Satellites. The band's EP debut, SonicAluzion A-Side, dropped last fall and the buzz has been building quickly. Smashing Satellites is taking part in the May 8th edition of Generation Next Live during Canadian Music Week. We'll chat about the show and the band's impressive success of late.
This is the first of our Best of CMW episodes, and I suppose this one could unofficially be called the Dine Alone Records round-up.
Dine Alone is celebrating its 10 year anniversary this year, and as such, founder Joel Carriere anchored a special panel during the conference to talk about the ups and downs of the last decade in the label game. Mike caught up with him before the round table to talk shop, and it's a great interview.
For musical artists, we've got both Monster Truck and Single Mothers on this weeks show - both blowing up, both Dine Alone bands. The former is working on the follow-up to 2013's hugely successful Furiosity while Single Mothers are still riding the attention surrounding their debut, Negative Qualities.
We've also got the boys in Billy Talent, who may not be a Dine Alone band, but considering their history with the likes of Alexisonfire, Moneen, Cancer Bats, and the gang, could be considered extended family.
Plenty more from CMW coming up. Enjoy!
Lots to talk about in this episode, with four - yep, four - interviewees.
Thomas D'Arcy's latest full-length, Fooled You Twice, dropped in early March and since, it's been getting a lot of positive attention. New Canadian Music, for example, said, "Pop craftsman Thomas D'Arcy is at his melodic and catchy best on second solo record Fooled You Twice." Mike chats with Thomas about the album and a lot more.
Luke Nicholson's Frantic City is his most poignant album to date. Having written the majority of material for this record while touring away from his new born daughter, one can hear the love, and maturity in both his lyrics and delivery. He's also launched an interesting new contest we'll chat about.
Mike also catches up with Toronto's Rebel Hero, a funk-rock trio with an impressive resume that's taking part in the April 4, 2015 edition of Generation Next Live at the Phoenix.
Finally, we speak with musician, engineer, producer, and studio owner Mike Saracino about his new initiative, The Globe Series, which takes him around the world to record on-the-rise musicians and spawn international collaborations.

About a decade ago I read a book with interviews with comic writers all giving tips on writing. One tip has stuck with me over the years.
Devin Grayson best known for her runs on Catwoman, Black Widow and Titans had an idea about catering the music she listened to while working to the individual project and sometimes even the individual character. This can have great benefits both actively during work as well as when you're just in a "writing" state of mind.
