  • Featuring an interview with music legend Ben Lee *

We have an extra special interview this week with music legend Ben Lee!  I got word that Ben was hosting an intimate house concert at a yoga studio on Commercial Drive this past weekend, and went along with a voice recorder.   Luckily Ben had a few minutes spare time post-gig for a quick chat.  The ups and downs of Ben’s story in music have been well-documented, since his auspicious beginnings at age 14 with the band Noise Addict and his subsequent solo albums.  In our chat today Ben speaks of how the music he consciously creates these days, and his charity work with the organization Inkarri, has been informed by his shifts in consciousness via explorations of eastern spirituality and plant-based medicines.

An extra special guest phones through to chat this week – Rick Reid, guitarist, vocalist and lyricist of Montreal-based two-piece ‘fog pop’ band Eternal Husbands!  Rick and bassist Matt Leddy are well known to Stranded and the Canadian independent music world as two-thirds of The City Streets who formed in Edmonton in 2005 and released a number of top-notched records until they disbanded in 2013. Rick and Matt have explored a new sound with the new band, incorporating synths and an expansive, layered approach to their recording. Album #2 ‘French Exit’ is out now. Catch Eternal Husbands on tour this summer and you won’t be disappointed!
