Records In My Life at Festival d'été de Québec!

 Charles Brownstein and I flew to Quebec City last week to attend this year's Festival d'été de Québec, where we had the opportunity to interview none other than Neil Finn of Crowded House fame, as well as breaking artists such as July Talk, Solids, Men I Trust and We Are Wolves.  The entire feistval was incredible, well run, well curated, and just plain fun.  The love of music in the city is palpable, and the people who run FEQ are top notch.  We were treated like visiting royalty, and the beautiful backdrop of Quebec just made the entire adventure enjoyable.  Please have a look at this highlight reel from our trip and know that several of these pieces will be aired over the summer in their full length.  Merci FEQ2016!

Records In My Life: Tor MIller

We met with Tor Miller while he was on tour with Aurora in the spring.  He was a very confident young man, with some good stories and a solid perspective on his music and inspirations.  He cited a several classic albums in his interview, Ziggy Stardust from Bowie, Harvest from Neil Young and let us know that Bruce Springsteen isn't much of a driver!  I suspect he has a bright future: his album will be coming out in September.

This Tor Miller episode of Records In My Life referenced the following albums:
1. David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
2. Queen - Greatest Hits I & II
3. Neil Young - Harvest
4. Tame Impala - Currents
5. Bruce Springsteen - Darkness on the Edge of Town
