Danielle Duval, Firebelly, & Wilderness of Manitoba

Danielle Duval traded her tennis racket in for rock & roll...and she hasn't looked back. I'll have a feature interview with the folk-pop Torontonian who hails from Montreal.

 

Fredy Carriere & Mathieu Gagnon of Ottawa blues band Firebelly go under fire in the 90 Second Egg.

 

Plus a full concert from indie-folk band The Wilderness of Manitoba and a tune from Collingwood's Karina Wipper. Get to a radio or www.cbc.ca/radio for Bandwidth this Saturday @ 5:05 ET!
 

Irish Roots, CBC Searchlight Finalists, & Homebased hip hop!

Kingston's Irish Roots play at the Loyal Oarsman in town every St. Patrick's Day, and that's given them plenty of fodder for hilarious stories!

 

Homebased is an Ottawa hip hop trio who are releasing a brand-new album tonight at Ritual in Ottawa. Liam aka Betavel stopped by for a rapid-fire Q&A called The 90 Second Egg.

 

Plus all of the CBC Searchlight finalists from across Ontario:

Young Running "Coming Home": The Interview

My only complaint about Young Running's new release Coming Home is that it leaves you wanting more. I suppose that's a heck of a lot better than wanting it to end. Its five songs are so solid I was left wondering where this band had been all my life. They're here now, and if Coming Home is any indication, they're here to stay.

The album's out today, March 12th, across Canada and beyond.

Hannah Georgas on Hannah Georgas (the album) & Mom

Hannah Georgas's latest album is rife with personal, intimate anxieties but those are masked by the layers of up-beats laid down underneath the lyrics. She's as thoughtful in conversation as she is in lyricism. Here's my chat with Hannah about the ladies in her life and the new album she titled after herself.

Funk & soul in Ottawa's Old Stereo

Your old stereo might not be good for much except tuning in some crackling A.M. radio,

but the nostalgia of the phrase was a good enough reason for Phil Dunac to write a song about it. He eventually turned that song into his band Old Stereo.

 

The Ottawa funk-soul quartet is lead by Phil, but of the four he's the only one who still works a dayjob. That meant he didn't join his bandmates when they came by the CBC studio this week for a chat. Here's my conversation with Shaun Desjardins and James Burmeister of Old Stereo, on Bandwidth.

Young Running, Danielle Duval, Steve Adamyk, Tanika Charles

Young, running from Northern Ontario to Toronto. Or is it Young Running: From Northern Ontario to Toronto? Four guys from four parts of Canada found each other and their band's sound in The Big Smoke, but they always think about home.
