Talent Tuesday – New Canadian Releases – March 13, 2012

First up, we will take a quick look at Brigitte M.  A French-Canadian star out of Quebec, Brigitte M released “From Metal To Crystal”.  The song attached is an interesting take of “I Was Made For Loving You”.

Our second release this evening is a unique project from Maritimer, Joel Plaskett.  The album “Scrappy Happiness” is the culmination of 10 weeks of recording and releasing one new song per week.  I have been an avid  listener of CBC Radio Drive for the past couple of months to catch the newest release.  This song is my favourite (so far).

“Lightning Bolt”

Our 3rd band is out Vancouver.  Chains of Love are an Alternative band with some fire.  Nice live song.  The album is called “Strange Grey Days” and this song is from it.

“Lies, Lies, Lies”

I saved the best for last.  Johnny Reid has released his latest “Fire It Up”.  It is country, but very good country.  This is his 7th album and is the followup to his wildly successful double platinum “A Place Called Love”.

My international pick for the week in by Janiva Magness.  She just released “Stronger For It”.  She is one of the finer blues singers around and has honed her craft for almost 30 years.  Listen, then buy this album.

“I Won’t Cry”
