This week’s guest host is Celeigh Cardinal, a future Capital City Records artist. Look out for her soon-to be released record “Everything or Noting at All” on Capital City Records. Celeigh chats about Kimberley MacGregor and her song “Building a Case”, the second last selection on Kimberley’s record “I am My Own” as found on Capital City Records.

According to Kimberley’s website , she is reformed bank manager, Kimberley realized she was doing a successful job of living someone else’s life—and a poor job living her own. In 2013, she launched her original songs into the world and took centre stage. She has since released two full-length albums and was awarded Female Artist of the Year at both the 2015 and 2016 Edmonton Music Awards. Other nominees from the Edmonton Music Awards are also found on Capital City Records.

Celeigh is from the north country of Alberta and moved to Edmonton in 2010. She can perform solo, with her duo, trio or full band. A Celeigh Cardinal performance is a profound, soulful triumph of songs that blend roots, folk, rock and pop. Her voice at once evokes gentleness and control which can turn to raucous, gut wrenching, twisted, turn-yourself-inside-out blues within a single phrase.

This week’s episode features local impresario Dave Von Bieker and according to his web site he’s “your bow-tied tour guide to the other side”. He chats about the Lucas Chaisson song “My Lover and My Ghost” found on the record “Telling Time” as discovered on Capital City Records.

Produced by Grammy winner Colin Linden, "Telling Time" highlights Lucas’s strong songwriting, and very distinctive vocal delivery. An honest and confident songwriter, Lucas isn’t afraid to tread familiar ground with new eyes. When he is on stage, he is exactly where he is supposed to be.

Dave is the Founder/Artistic Director of the Bleeding Heart Art Space. Also a local musician, he talks about how “My Lover and My Ghost”, “…puts you in a zone”, and why it still strikes a positive chord with him years after its release.

This week’s podcast features Amy van Keeken, another artist on the Capital City Records website. She talks the group Switches, a fellow act on the electronic arm of the Edmonton Public Library.

Switches live up to the rep of the place they call home: a prairie city with big skies and big sound. The band straddles the worlds of ruthless garage-punk and gritty, sing-along rock.

Amy van Keeken is deep into the Edmonton music scene as a musician, singer, educator and broadcaster on both CJSR and CKUA. The Amy van Keeken Rock and Roll Sing Along experience is something to behold for people of all ages. She also has two solo releases on capitalcityrecords.ca “Live Right” and “So Long. She can be heard as well as part of the group Dub Vulture also featured on the web site through the album “Brother Can You Spare A Gun”.

This week’s podcast features local writer and publisher Jason Norman chatting about the mellow sound of Tyler Butler. He talks about how the music is almost the ‘opposite of sound’ when seeing Tyler play live as a solo act.

The sea may be in his blood but the prairies are in his heart. Tyler Butler was born on Canada’s east coast but taps into his Alberta roots. Tyler seeks to understand what makes a true folk musician; scouring Canada to find those tireless troubadours who craft stories of the land, in turn creating place through their song.

Jason Norman is behind projects like the ’40 below” volumes one and two and the #yegwords Coffee Sleeves you may have seen around Edmonton. He’s very active on twitter under the handle @bellyofawhale .
