Show Notes

Whether you know him for his solo work or as 1/3 of prairie rap pioneers Shadez, Len Bowen is an integral piece of Winnipeg’s hip-hop community.

Stay tuned for a conversation about his new BBS.Steve-produced project for 4th Quarter Records, creative freedom, music that needs to “marinate” before it can be fully appreciated, and much more!

Unfortunately I had to cut a few sections of this interview from the final podcast because they were interrupted by one of my kids (a hazard of dad-casting), but the version here is still a really good listen.

This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company and by Gruf and Yy's new 'Mental Health Day' album, and its release show  Dec. 29!

Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on Patreon! You can help out for as little as $1 a month if you like the show and want to throw some change in the guitar case! You can also throw a one-time tip via Buymeacoffee.
