    CM Radio - Jan 8, 2013 - The Trews, Molly Thomason & More

    in Music

    Happy New Year, folks, and welcome to the first "regular" edition of CM Radio of 2014. If you've not checked them out yet, hit the archives or the iTunes store to access our special holiday editions of CM Radio. On Dec. 25th, we revisited some of the highlights of our first year, including interviews with major names like Avril Lavigne, Metric, Blue Rodeo, The Tragically Hip, and many others. Then, on January 1st, our show looked back at some of the "on the rise" acts we spoke with in 2013 that we think are going to make an impact in 2014.

    For this week's show, we've got our Jan/Feb 2014 cover artists, The Trews, talking about the making of their fifth full-length record. You can get the full story in our feature article when the issue drops, but listen in for some additional info on the recording, their work with Gavin Brown, and more.

    It's a double dose of East Coast artists, as we'll also be speaking with the very young and very talented Molly Thomason, whose new album "Columbus Field" is sure to turn some heads - especially for fans of Tegan and Sara, Sleater Kinney, and Neko Case.

    We're very happy to have you with us as we kick off 2014 on Canadian Musician Radio!

    Interview with Brooklyn Roebuck

    in Country Music

    Brooklyn Roebuck’s childhood love of singing competitions landed her on YTV’s nation-wide, talent-search TV show The Next Star at fourteen years old, where a loyal and rapidly growing fan base of which three million voters decided that the crown belonged to her. After the win, her career kicked into high gear and she appeared regularly on YTV, even hosting her own Brooklyn’s Movie Night and guest starring on the hit series Life With Boys. Her music videos for the infectious pop-country singles The Way I See You, Lemon and Lime, and One Of These Days have caught airtime from Juicebox Television, CMT, and YTV, and have each been viewed tens of thousands of times on YouTube alone. 

    In 2012, Brooklyn performed a soulful rendition of O Holy Night on CMT’s star-studded The Gift of Giving charity special which showcased not only her remarkable vocal talent but her maturity as an artist. With names like Randy Bachman, The Trews and Beverley Mahood in attendance, it remains one of the most special performances of her career. One year later, Brooklyn further cemented that status when she released the self-penned Storyteller EP. Brooklyn’s current single Good Day exemplifies that playful and laid-back vibe her fans know and love from past releases and live shows, but it introduces an edginess and attitude that only an eighteen-year-old can bring without losing an ounce of charm. Catch it on country airwaves and beyond!

    in Music

    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.

    CM Radio - Oct. 15, 2014 - Victoria Banks, The Meds

    in Music

    Our post-Thanksgiving program (Canadian Thanksgiving, that is) features two great Canadian acts from different ends of the stylistic spectrum.

    Victoria Banks is fresh off the release of Indigo, her third studio album, a collection of songs stemming from bare-bones midnight recording sessions in her attic. In addition to her own multi-award-nominated releases, Banks is a staff songwriter at Nashville’s RareSpark Media Group with a catalogue that includes hits for the likes of Sara Evans, Jessica Simpson, One More Girl, Doc Walker, and Johnny Reid

    As for The Meds, the PEI-based rock outfit has been touring the country on the back of their debut full-length, South America. Theirs is a sound that blends easily-accessible mainstream rock with a folky, poetic vocal style and plenty of substance. The album was co-produced by Matt Mays and Colin MacDonald of The Trews.

    CM Radio - Sept. 24, 2014 - Glorious Sons, Obey The Brave, John Southworth

    in Music

    This week's show is a bit of a stylistic roller coaster, featuring performer/songwriter John Southworth, Quebec-based hardcore outfit Obey the Brave, and Kingston rock quintet The Glorious Sons.

    Southworth is set to drop his latest LP, a double album called Niagara that's divided into a Canadian and American side, at the end of September. We speak about how the album took shape as well as some of his other artistic endavours and how they correlate.

    Obey The Brave, comprised of ex members of Blind Witness and Despised Icon, released their second full-length effort Salvation mid-September. We speak with vocalist Alex Erian about the band's progress since their debut, Young Blood, as well as the current state of the hardcore scene.

    Finally, the boys of Glorious Sons are fresh off the release of their debut full-length The Union, produced in tandem with John-Angus MacDonald of The Trews and the one and only Gavin Brown (Billy Talent, Three Days Grace). We get the scoop on the band's success thus far and some of their upcoming plans.

    We're all about the music this week. We've got three artist interviews lined up for the show, and they couldn't be more diverse.

    First, we'll chat with Toronto-based performer-songwriter Patrick Ballantyne. In addition to being a past CM contributor, Patrick has co-writing credits on successful tracks by the likes of Big Sugar and The Trews. Earlier this month, he released his latest solo collection called Days of Rain. We speak with Patrick about his songwriting success, how this album fits into his body of work, and a lot more.

    A former member of BKS and Love Inc., Simone Denny is a powerhouse vocalist in the pop/dance/house realm. She's fresh off the release of "Your Love Fades Away" - the first single from her solo album "The Stereo Dynamite Sessions, Vol. 1." We'll chat about her career to date and how that's led her to where she is now.

    Finally, we're stoked to have Dave1 from hugely successful Canadian electro-funk duo Chromeo on the show. He'll be speaking about the band's latest full-length release, "White Women," how the Internet has contributed to their success, and their plans for global domniation.
