Regular listeners will know that the show has generally been rock n roll and folk-based, so I’m pleased this week to branch out into featuring an innovative Toronto-based electronica act named Speaker Face.  I caught up with Eric and Trent of the band post-show and recorded a great interview where they speak of the origins of the band and the uniqueness of their blend of electronica and traditional instruments.  One half of Speaker Face is American so we  also commiserate over the recent US election results…

* Cory Owens and Juniper Watters LIVE in the CiTR studio*

Cory Owens and Juniper Watters are our special studio guests this week. They are both local singer-songwriters who I met at the regular Monday night open-mike at Mr Bronwstone’s pub at Main and 13th in Vancouver. Cory hosts the open-mike and hold space for a eclectic group of performers of all ages, genres and ability. I myself have benefited hugely from developing my own performance stage at Mr Bronwstone’s so it’s a pleasure to have Cory on the show. Juniper is likewise a burgeoning local talent, a long time CiTR listener and even has family connections to last week’s guest and Mr Bronstone’s regular Leonard Pennifold! Cory and Juniper are both playing at Raw Canvas in Yaletown on April 10.

* Ottway, Broder, Allen LIVE in the CiTR studio *

Local outfit Ottway, Broder, Allen are our special in-studio guests today!  What makes the band unique is it’s combination of three establish songwriters, with a reputation for injecting a healthy dose of fun rock action into their live act.  It’s a pleasure to have them in the studio chatting and playing three songs from their debut album ‘Decades: Reign.Liberty.Rock.’ You can download a copy of the album at http://obadecades.bandcamp.com/ and keep an eye out for local dates in the near future…
