The stage is shaped like lips and goes off into the venue so I get to run around in the crowd. It’s great fun to be able to get that close to the audience.” Keith Richards added, “From day one at rehearsals it sounded so...

Posted 30 Mar 2013 in Music + TV News

  Do you like lists? I like lists. Some times I agree with them, sometimes I do not. Sometimes they’re fun for laughs, sometimes they’re though provoking. Sometimes they’re worthless. I’ll let you decide where this list falls. CBC has announced their Top 25 Canadian Singers of All Time List. It was compiled by a group consisting of network producers and hosts. The said about the task that it was “a tenuous, lawless balancing act of separating voices from songwriting skills, honouring established talents while still giving a nod to younger generations and giving due respect to those with mad skills regardless of whether they are too cool or not cool enough.” Here’s their listing…  1. k.d. lang  2.

Jason first came to our attention back in the 90’s as the main man behind Songs: Ohia which was essentially just a vehicle for himself. A fine body of work was carved out, culminating in the superb album Magnolia Electric Co in 2003. Jason loved the sound of...
