  Some may say that the internet and social media has created a more accessible venue for those in need of sharing their talent. However, have we become so immediate and overloaded with constant accessibility that we don’t truly care anymore? Alley CB Flynn has recognized an overabundance of musicians hitting up youtube and constantly sharing on facebook and twitter has made it difficult for the artist who has made their project into a true labour of love. “The industry is so overly saturated and flooded with new music and artists that it’s completely overwhelming. With the ability of anybody and everybody to easily build a studio for a few hundred bucks and spam the internet with sometimes amazing but…

Upon meeting Saturday when I awoke, I was happy to see it resembled the name of the next day; it was a beautiful, bright, and blue September morning that was pleasantly crisp. I took a cue from yesterday and left my waking hunger unchecked as I ambled up to the shuttle school bus. Its population was a little greater today, so when I arrived at Elliston Municipal Park again, I wasn’t too surprised to see there were hundreds already on site to take in Saturday’s festivities. Fortunately, the bus arrived with plenty time to take in the scene before the highly anticipated Food Hike. The entrance to the park played host to a dozen or more booths where local artisans…

  The community of Elliston, nestled in on the northeast side of the Bonavista peninsula, played host to a world-class festival this past weekend as it welcomed some of the best chefs and musicians from across our province – and the country. This is the sixth year of the unique Roots, Rants & Roars festival, but it was my first time attending. I had only heard positive reviews from friends who were there before and, even more tellingly and enticingly, the festival had a near-mythic status for my buddies who are in the cooking industry. While I didn’t completely know what to expect coming into it on Friday, at the other end of the weekend I found myself with a…

Another North: Not just another band

  Every once and awhile a sound comes along that is completely different. A sound that produces a feeling of satisfaction, giving off more that a head bopping beat but rather a reminder of where we are from and who are now. Another North is not just another band- they are amazing. They are a piece of home with superior talent and a true love for music and art. Another North started about six years ago. “Vince, Aaron and I instantly clicked, so we decided to keep things moving in a new project,” recalled drummer, Brad Wells. Bassist, Justin Hickey joined the band two years ago following an audition. “The boys had gone through a couple of bassists but we…

  On the Saturday of 2014 Labour Day Weekend, St. John’s saw the debut of the Harbourage Festival, featuring artists Mick Davis & Thin Love, Repartee, Elliott Brood, Matt Mays, and Hey Rosetta! As the name would suggest, the harbour front was the setting of this unique festival. I was lucky enough to have a chat with Lorne Loder and Jon Loder, who were part of the small team behind this new endeavour.   Q: First of all, thanks very much to you both for making time to talk to me as you finish up what must have been a busy weekend. Secondly, and more importantly, congratulations on what I thought was a very successful day. I had a blast…
