The kids are alright! Chats with Little Stella, Liam Callan and Alyssa Reid
We dip into the Bandwidth vault for an interview with Manotick's Little Stella, who got together in high school and played hookie from university to work on their new album! It hasn't been released yet, but we preview of one of the songs that'll be on it.
We've also got a conversation with 16-year-old Liam Callan, who's been living in different places around the world since he was born -- everywhere from Turkey to Hong Kong. His parents are originally from Burlington and Prince Edward County, though -- so it was here in Ontario that he recorded his new EP, called Start It Over Again. Liam explains what it was like to be taught music by a travelling Filipino minstrel!
And it's a triple-whammy this episode, because we've got a chat with Brampton teen sensation Alyssa Reid. We talk about how she got her start in the biz by covering another Ontario pop star on YouTube...Oh yes. we're talking about the Biebs.
That's on top of impressive rhymes by 15-year-old hip-hopper Akeil, and a new tune from a "folk-opera" album by 18-year-old Kemptville songwriter Christo Graham!
