New music and 2nd Listens: Picture the Ocean, Cadence Weapon, Alice Kos & Mark Davis

This week we'll introduce you to Picture the Ocean, the new project by the artists formerly known as Jesse Dee and Jacquie B. They've released an alt-pop self-titled album just in time for a very ambitious tour that will take them to communities across Alberta and BC over the next two months.
Edmonton's former Poet Laureate Roland Pemberton a.k.a. Cadence Weapon is releasing his new album, Hope in Dirt City, this month; we'll hear a couple of tracks from it.
  You'll also hear new electronica from a Calgary musician and producer who calls herself Krystle Love B.

We'll check in on Trevor Tchir, who's performing this Saturday night at the Haven Social Club in Edmonton.

Plus, we revisit two recent favorites from Edmonton artists; a debut from Alice Kos, called You Missed it All. And from Mark Davis, Eliminate the Toxins.

This week on the Key of A, we'll hear about some of the special musical events happening this weekend, including the 18th Annual East Coulee Spring Festival; and Song and Story with Celtic folk singer and storyteller Sora.

Clinton St John (formerly of bands The Cape May and Pale Air Singers) joins Katherine in the studio to talk about his beautiful new book and cd package, Storied Hearts, which combines line drawings, folk tales, poetry and handcrafted, painstakingly recorded songs.
Plus, new cd's from 18 year-old Cochrane singer/songwriter Lucas Chaisson, who's releasing his 3rd album, Growing Pains; and Calgary's Danielle French releases Drive, a new album of songs about life on the road -- as she puts it, they're songs about driving, freedom and heartache.
