You might know Murray Lightburn as the frontman of the Montreal indie rock band The Dears, but his solo career is turning heads too. Lightburn's solo record, Hear Me Out, just dropped last week. Today, he joins Tom Power live in the q studio with a string quartet for a performance and chat about making music he can call his own.

"I'm thinking about the people that I meet on the road and tell me that this record saved my life," said Lightburn about his new solo record. "I hear it all the time."

Watch the full interview with Lightburn above and his performances below.
