* Featuring Orit Shimoni LIVE in the CiTR studio *

Orit Shimoni is our very special guest in the studio today. Orit is a well-travelled singer-songwriter who we have invited to perform at the very next ‘Stranded Sunday Session’ at the Railway Club in Vancouver on April 12. Orit, who hails originally from Jerusalem, has been touring and recording consistently for 7 years. Today Orit speaks of how the determination to pursue the uncertain life of a full-time solo artist is drawn from her ‘pure love of song’. And we are gifted with four lyrically-rich live acoustic tracks in the studio.

* Kristina Lao + Beaver Thomas LIVE in the CiTR studio *

We kick off this week’s show with a few songs from British Columbia’s favourite anarchist country singer Joey Only! Joey was in Vancouver this week for a triumphant homecoming show with his Outlaw Band at the historic Wise Hall.

And much of the show is devoted to showcasing the tunes of UK-based singer-songwriter Kristina Lao. Kristina, who spent some years living in both Australia and New Zealand, is visiting family in Vancouver and has time to join us this coming Sunday night for The Stranded Sunday Sessions #4 along with Leah Barley and M.Lund. Her exquisite vocals and literate songwriting are well displayed as she shares three original compositions LIVE in the studio (and a John Prine cover). And she is joined in the studio by new friend and guitarist Beaver Thomas, also of the John Pippus Band.

And we wrap up the show with the brand new single ‘Outta My Head’ from Australian musician Travis Caudle, which has been released by Spinning Blue Records.
