FearingWhite.jpg

Tom welcomes Stephen Fearing and Andy White, who kick off the Inglewood Music Club's Season next Saturday.

Veteran musicians in their own right, they have more than twenty albums between them. And in March they released their second collaboration, Tea and Confidences - quite an accomplishment, given that Stephen lives in Nova Scotia and Andy lives in Australia.

Tune in 10am to noon Sunday to find out how they were able to pull it off.


Alberta Shows

Sept 25 - Medicine Hat (Ye Olde Jar Bar)

Zeus on How I Hear It


September 15, 2014, 4:46 pm

ZeusAlbum_hihi.jpg

Zeus, the 4-member band from Toronto, is currently riding the wave of their latest release Classic Zeus.

On this third full-length album, the songs have been described as “a marvelous intersection of tension and harmony” and in many ways it marks the coming together of the band as a true musical collective, sharing song-writing, lead vocals, and switching off on various instruments.  Intrigued?  As the band lands in Alberta for shows in Edmonton and Calgary, they have graciously made time for a visit to CKUA’s Edmonton studios. 

Tune in this Thursday afternoon at 2pm as the band joins Monica Miller on How I Hear It for music and conversation.
