I always enjoy promoting Canadian talent, especially if they are from Calgary. Kate came to my attention in January of 2019 and I am just getting around to introducing you to her now. A bit of a brain break.
Kate Stevens is singer songwriter in the story teller vein. She has a very nice voice, reminiscent of many artists, notably a laid back version of Andra Day and quite jazzy. Definitely worth a listen.
If you enjoy the video, her music and her story in an expanded way are viewable here.

Listened and shazamed this tune in September 2015. Great funk from the Godfather Of Soul himself, Mr. James Brown. Funky President (People It’s Bad) was released as a single in 1974 and appeared on his 1974 album Reality. Apparently this track is one of his most sampled and the wah wah guitar has been used on dozens of hip hop tracks. Enjoy!!!
Nice tune in the mailbag recently by Swedish Alt band Everywhere and their new tune “Shades at Night”. A catchy pop tune with some 1980’s legs. I can see it showing up on your local Alt station at some point in the future. Enjoy.
Being as how we are in the Kootenays, it seems appropriate to post a tune by Castlegar’s own Frazey Ford. It doesn’t hurt either that it is a terrific tune.
