Show Notes

Local Metis folk singer [Riel](http://www.instagram.com/this_is_riel/) -- formerly known as [A Rebel Named Riel](http://witchpolice.com/e/wr317-a-rebel-named-riel-36992bdcad863c/) -- is on the show to talk all about his new solo persona, more emotional songwriting, upcoming new music, and much more! We also touch on his rewarding (musical) day job, as well as Manitoba’s Indigenous music scene! Because his new stuff is coming out imminently, but isn't quite ready yet, we didn't include any of the songs on the episode, which means it's a bit shorter than usual, but it's a really fun chat -- and the songs are worth the wait, based on the previews he shared with me. This episode brought to you by the Gumshoe Strut’s new [Heartbeat EP](http://thegumshoestrut.bandcamp.com/album/heartbeat-ep) from Saskatoon Folk Rap Records! Check out our pals at [Devine Shirt Company](http://devineshirtcompany.ca/) for your merch needs, and congratulations to the [Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/) on its 15th anniversary!
