London ON based singer-songwriter John Muirhead first landed on our radar as a member of the Developing Artist Program (formerly the Youth Program) at the 2016 Folk Music Ontario conference. He has since released two E.P.s and is now working on his first full length record. John Muirhead joins us on Episode 432 of Folk Roots Radio for a great conversation about his music. We also check out new music from Pete Eastmure, Jamie Shea, Lula Wiles, Steve Poltz, Kate Weekes, Outside I’m A Giant, Matt Mays, Dave McEathron and Benjamin Dakota Rogers. Check out the full playlist below.
Episode 428 of Folk Roots Radio features an interview with Juno nominated Métis singer-songwriter Amanda Rheaume who joins us to chat about her fifth album “The Skin I’m In”, the follow up to her very well received 2016 album “Holding Patterns”. The Skin I’m In is an upbeat Americana-pop roots recording with a central message, most powerfully stated on the title track (and first single), that it’s really okay to just be you! It’s a great interview – and definitely worth sticking around for. As usual, we also take a look at more of the new releases we’ve received, and this time around we listen to new music from Kate Weekes, Christian Howse, Earle and Coffin, John McCutcheon, BackWest, Rich Krueger and Adam Baxter.
