Just wanted to let you know about a neat new project I am part of THIS AFTERNOON for Alan Neal’s CBC/Radio-Canada afternoon show, ALL IN A DAY.
So today they will be taking a look at the crunch that organizations like the Ottawa Food Bank are under right now. Calls have gone way up, donations have dried, while many volunteers have had to stay home...
So he asked musicians (like me!) to try out a wee experiment... putting together (while social distancing) musicians to create something brand-new, a song of hope, or struggle, or a call to action, that reflected what communities are struggling through right now. He paired me up with the amazing vocalist that is Dee Butters (the PepTides, DeeDee7) and we got cracking. With time and sleep being tight this week as it was... the press was on.
Anyway, to hear the final result... All in a day airs from 3-6PM on CBC Radio One 91.5FM in Ottawa or online at cbc.ca/allinaday and our collab tune / segment will be aired between 430-5PM. And THIS WEEKEND ONLY, when you make a donation on the Ottawa Food Bank website￼, you can download our track (and all the others) from this week’s musical collaboration experimentation!
