I met an incredible man, Eric Wicherts, at Phil&Sebastian Coffee Shop. 90+ year old Dutch-Canadian, husband to painter Andie Wicherts, war veteran, geo-physicist, owner of a luxury passenger train. And super nice. He gave me a run down of meeting his wife to having 3 kids each on a different CONTINENT. And of course we talk about how amazing Calgary is! (Especially compared to Toronto, hehehe) And when he's done, he walks out of the studio - mid session. Proper thug. Thank you Eric. Thank you to MediaLabYYC for audio production and hosting. Thank you Thomas Thomas Band for amazing tunes. And thanks to coffee shops in general, that a foolish man like me could befriend an incredible achiever like Eric!
We had the distinct honour of sitting down with George Webber, esteemed, famous, and incredibly fun. A casual conversation that stretches across history, process, philosophy, and general awesomeness.
Incredible new track by band Thomas Thomas.
And as always, great thanks to Kyle Marshall at Media Lab YYCfor production.
Our hope is to further hone our content to show just how amazing Calgary is. Incredible creatives that, regardless of notoriety, want to keep encouraging the art scene to grow and evolve!
Here is a pre-post season quickie. Kyle from MediaLabYYC did me the great honour of attending our Issue 2 Launch and we recorded this podcast. As a fare-thee-well to my music collaborators I've included full track cuts of the songs from Handmade and Mellori.
This event occurred at the incredible seafood restaurant Rodney's Oyster House.
It features quick chats with Issue 2 collaborators: Arlene Hufalar, Graham Boyd, and Geordan Spicer. Check them out ASAP!
