Stranded podcast #262

  • Featuring an interview with indie-folk act Ocean Leaves *

This is another week where our special guest has a connection to both Australia and Canada.  Timothy Poitras is a Canadian national who married an Australian and settled in the Blue Mountains region in NSW.  Listeners may recall we interviewed Timothy in 2013 when he had released his first EP under the name Ocean Leaves.  Timothy has since relocated to Brisbane, where he has fleshed out the Ocean Leaves sound with a full band, and together they have recorded the ‘Winter Heart’ EP.  According to the band’s press release ‘the first single, Yellowknife, is a lush, spooky ballad about longing and the darkness it can create inside you.’  You can hear that impressive track on the show today as well as Timothy speaking enthusiastically about this new collaborative phase of his musical life.
