Show Notes

On this episode: a chat with award-winning Manitoba country singer Jerry Sereda!

While we did talk about his new single, “Backroad Therapy” (eventually), it’s a wide-ranging conversation about crossovers between country, hip-hop, pop and beyond, being vulnerable on stage, and so much more.

WR144: Iskwé

Toronto (via Winnipeg) vocalist Iswké has been the subject of a lot of buzz in the Canadian music biz lately -- as much for her uniquely soulful, jazz-inflected, trip-hop-inspired sound as her willingness to speak out on modern-day protest songs like "Nobody Knows," which addresses the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women. This was sort of a last-minute 'hey, you're in town and our schedules work!' sort of deal, so we skipped the usual Witchpolice theme word setup, but you'll hear Iskwé's own music throughout. There's a really good discussion on this episode about music with a message, the problems (and great things) about our hometown and much more. ...

WR052: RasTamils

It’s a reggae-heavy episode this week as Rastamils frontman Franklin Fernando joins us to talk about the “empire” theme. Franklin, originally from Sri Lanka, has rejuvenated Winnipeg’s reggae scene with his group’s mashup of Caribbean and South Asian sounds. We’re also joined by Rastamils bassist Christian Devoin, who has a history in the local reggae scene dating back to the early 1990s, via phone. This episode includes a ticket giveaway to see Rastamils in concert in January for a live audio/video recording, so stay tuned to see how you can get your hands on those.
