Folk Roots Radio Episode 402: feat. David Graff & More New Releases

British Columbia based singer-songwriter David Graff joins us on Episode 402 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about his new album “Supposed To Fly”. David has just returned to writing and recording after a twenty year gap. Despite some early success, with songs placed in movies and television, and an EP called “Some Of What I Know”, David dropped out of the music business in the late nineties to pursue a career as a visual artist. However, he’s back with a truly fabulous collection of songs. You really need to hear this interview and check out this new album. We also check out the latest releases from The Maes, Claire Coupland, Melanie Brulée, Ann Vriend, The Jeremiahs, Orit Shimoni and Cheshire Carr. Check out the full playlist below.


Canadian singer-songwriter David Graff‘s new release “Supposed To Fly” was co-produced with his daughter Julia Graff and James Perrella. With a voice that feels like a blend of Tom Petty, Don Henley and Joe Walsh, and some fabulous musicianship from a strong group of side players including Steve Dawson, Kirby Barber, David Barber and John Ellis, this radio friendly release has some finely crafted songs that run the gamut from reflections on life, to cautionary tales about relationships, and favourite trucks.

That’s all we have time for, this time around. Thanks to all the artists who share their music with us, and thank you for listening. We have a lot of great music and interviews to bring you on future shows. I hope you’ll join us!
