Friday Night in Montreal ? Time for Some Heroes !

Leo Galasso is a good man. Leo Galasso loves music …

wpid-wp-1417184454744.jpeg

That love of music stays ‘all in the family’. His daughter Bella ( see link below) and son Julian both play and write songs. Something not so surprising considering Leo’s musical adoration was placed within his children at a young age.

 Now –  it’s his turn to shine …

Please listen below as Leo explains his band’s new CD titled ‘Road to Eternity” and it’s subsequent launch this weekend.

Leo? Take it away ….

Please listen to the interview with Leo’s daughter Bella HERE!

Jason Campbell – Missing His ‘ Signals ‘ ?

Jason Campbell is from Newfoundland

jason-campbell-signals

Campbell chooses Nova Scotia for a second home.

That province holds the key to the success of his actual band;  Signal Hill. Campbell’s group  take up residency every Sunday evening at one of Nova Scotia’s premiere clubs; the Lower Deck. That gig  has kept  Signal Hill firmly planted in Halifax for many years and has garnered a huge following. Seldom is the place not filled to capacity.

Campbell stays true to his roots however and it shows in the making of his first solo album; ‘Missing Signals’. This CD was recorded by a Newfoundlander and was made with mostly Newfoundland musicians.

Once a Newfoundlanderalways a prince …

‘Missing Signals’ ( a collection of songs and a play on words ) was mostly written within the frame of ‘downtime’ from Signal Hill. In other words – Jason’s day job.

Please listen below as Jason discusses all the above as well as some interesting ‘friends’ who appear on the album.
