This week’s episode features long time Edmonton musician and arts administrator Brent Oliver chatting about the legendary Edmonton act Wilfred N and the Grown Men and the song ‘I’m In Love with the City’ as found on Capital City Records.  

Edmonton’s Wilfred Kozub has a long history of making rock and pop music sprinkled with innovation and electronic experimentation. Wilfred N & the Grown Men grew out of the New Wave music phenomenon of the early 80s when Wilfred and his band mate, Jamie Philp, hunkered down in Kozub’s basement recording studio. They produced a string of radio singles and the early album that spawned the hits "I Could Get Closer To You" and the still-well-loved title track, "Thunder on the Tundra". You can now find their 2013 album ‘I’m In Love with the City’ on Capital City Records.

Brent Oliver is in love with the city, having moved to Winnipeg and back. He is heavily involved through his work as the City of Spruce Grove Arts Director , UP+DT Festival Director, Alberta Music - Director/ Vice Chair and BOP MGMT Director. His resume expands over three decades in Edmonton and along with Wilfred N and the Grown Men, they have made Edmonton a healthy place to live with their contributions to the arts.

This is another week of a Capital City Records act chatting about another Capital City Record act. Tyler Butler has had two of his songs featured on past podcasts and he wanted to get in on being a guest host himself.

 

F and M are active in the Edmonton Music community and were co-hosts of a Capital City Records podcast talking about the group Concealer.  F&M have toured and recorded extensively garnering chart success, critical acclaim and a loyal fan base across Canada & internationally.  A new F&M album entitled "Lessons From Losers," is set for a late 2017 fall release.

 

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.
