Vancouver based, Northern-Irish born Jayne Trimble joins us on Episode 633 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about her music as dream folk singer-songwriter OXLIP, whose songs have a beautiful, ethereal, and mysterious quality about them. That’s not the only things Jayne does; she also runs her own boutique record label, World Peach Records and a recording studio, and also provides management services for female artists. A busy person, for sure – it’s a fascinating conversation, and well worth checking out. As always, we wrap up the episode with a look at more of the latest releases and this time around we hear from Ian James Bain, A’Court Spiegel & Vinnick, David LaMotte, Jimmy Bennett, The Lone Bellow and Tim Grimm. Remember, If you like the artists you hear on this show and want to support them, don’t just stream their music – BUY their music, and then you’ll really make a difference to their income at a time when it is becoming much more difficult to make a living as a musician. Check out the full playlist below.
Vancouver based, Northern-Irish born singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jayne Trimble makes music as her stage persona OXLIP. As well as her career as a singer-songwriter, Jayne also runs her own boutique record label, World Peach Records and a recording studio, while also providing management services for female artists. OXLIP was nominated for Emerging Artist Of The Year at the 2022 Canadian Folk Music Awards for her 2021 album “Your Mother Was A Peacock”.
“I create music because of the healing, transformative power I believe it has. Music is deeply personal for me. Since the age of 30, I’ve been on a healing journey that music has been a big part of. My voice and my music have gone from what I perceive to be unsure and insecure-sounding to fully embodied and empowered. I know that this energy is transmuted sonically to the listener when they hear my music. That’s really exciting to me!”
“I trained as an actress in London and Moscow, and I have a great passion for classical literature. A lot of my inspiration stems from these sources. I write a lot from the perspective of women throughout history who could not – or, who cannot – tell their stories, and I care deeply about equality and freedom for women. That theme comes through a lot in my music.”
“I started World Peach Records in 2015 in response to the overwhelming lack of female energy in the music industry. With over 15 years of experience as a touring and recording artist myself, I am passionate about helping other female artists thrive in the music industry INSPITE of the alarming odds stacked against them.”

“Where I Wanna Be” is the title track from Guelph based singer-songwriter Ian James Bain‘s 2022 debut album, an excellent country-folk recording that nearly slipped by without a play on Folk Roots Radio.
David LaMotte reflects on the cycles of life on the pandemic inspired “Coming Alive Again” which you can find on his 2022 album “Still”.
The instrumental on this episode, “Easter Morning Melody” is a fingerstyle tune from guitarist and acoustic blues player Jimmy Bennett. Originally posted to his Facebook page on Easter Sunday 2020, it was the first of many songs and tunes Jimmy released on a Sunday during the pandemic as a way to help ease people get through those challenging times. All these songs are now collected as “Sunday Morning Sessions”.
“It was the morning of Easter Sunday 2020 and the height of the Coronavirus outbreak. In the wake of the virus, the city around me had shut down, and most of the world was in the same perilous situation. Feelings of fear, dread and hopelessness were spreading, as contagious as Covid itself. That Sunday morning I recorded a song I wrote, “Easter Morning Melody”, and put up a video on Facebook in the hope of spreading a little musical joy during those dark days. The response was overwhelming, and the “Sunday Morning Sessions” began. They endured all through the Quarantine and continue to this day, schedule permitting.”
“Dreaming” comes from “Love Songs For Losers”, an excellent collection of lost love songs from The Lone Bellow.
“The Leaving” is a gentle meditation about the desire for inner peace from “The Little In-Between”, the latest recording from talented singer-songwriter Tim Grimm. That’s something we should all want.
That’s all we have time for. Thanks to all the artists who share their music with us, and thank you for listening. We have lots of great music and interviews to bring you on future episodes.
If you enjoy the music we play on this show and want to support the artists – many of whom aren’t able to play live at the moment because of the Covid-19 pandemic, don’t just stream their music – that earns them much less than a penny per play. Instead, buy their music – and really make a difference to their income. They’ll love you for it!
Stay safe and well everyone!
