Musicians get more and more creative all the time. With the ever-increasing opportunities in multimedia presentation across various platforms, there's no end to the possibilities.
It's no longer imperative to record a whole new album. EPs are very common, and single songs are often made into music videos in the blink of an eye.
On SCENE this weekend, host Bruce Ladan plays music from three videos showcasing three Manitoba acts.
Royal Canoe is always up to something interesting. Their latest album Today We're Believers has been in the Top 10 on the college charts since summer.
The band has recently returned from a successful European tour and they were just featured on Q with Jian Ghomeshi. Royal Canoe's latest video came out on Nov. 15. It's called Birthday.
Ruth Moody of the Wailin' Jennys is still riding the wave of critical acclaim for her CD These Wilder Things. She's just returned home from touring British Columbia and the States.
She ended her tour with Mark Knopfler on stage at the Fox Theatre in Oakland, California. She will be in Portland next week, playing a set at Mississippi Studios.
Moody has a new video out featuring her version of Bruce Springsteen's Dancing in the Dark.
During the Winnipeg Aboriginal Film Festival, they featured some music videos including one by Bruthers of Different Mothers who combine traditional rock with their native roots.
Speakers of Tomorrow is the title track from BODM's very successful debut album which came out a few years ago.
That first album climbed the charts, winning Best Rock CD at the Aboriginal People's Choice Music Awards that year. Soon after they got a Juno award nomination for the recording.
Catch SCENE on Air with host Bruce Ladan every Saturday from 5 - 6 p.m. on CBC Radio One 89.3 FM/990 AM/97.9 FM in Brandon.
