Rick Keene Music Scene – Dr. Jarrett Lobley Discusses Addiction and Music. PART 3

‘East is east and west is west – and an elephant never forgets. Boulder’s rules …’

Dr. Jarrett Lobley didn’t forget what he saw as he travelled the world. The things we in Canada take for granted were not part of the equation yet people were happier in places. 

Returning years later to the same locals and villages , Lobley noticed a difference in people’s behavior. Happiness was replaced with want and need. 

What caused it ? What made people turn to drugs and alcohol to mark their pain? Their malcontent ?

Please listen below to part three of my chat with the good doctor to find out !

‘East is east and west is west – and an elephant never forgets. Boulder’s rules …

Jarrett Lobley loved music before he became a doctor. Ironically – both professions heal from within. To combine the two is a double bonus for both doctor and patient. A double transplant – if you will …

Please listen below to part two of my chat with the good doctor and listen to some songs from the Jarrett Lobley Project.

The ‘Two Yoots ‘ Ain’t Bad .​.​.​.

Sometimes – kids can lead by example.

Such is the case with The Record Breakers. A bunch of teens with so much devotion to their craft, it makes adults appear lazy.

This is probably one of the reasons The Record Breakers have played more gigs than most Montreal bands this past year.

Please listen to a couple of songs from two of the members as well as a new tune by April Wine alumni Gary Moffet. Stay tuned tomorrow for my interview with Gary ….

Jarrett Lobley; The Doctor is in The House- Literally ! Complete Interview !

Jarrett Lobley asked a lot of questions as a kid …

So much so – his Father limited them to a list of fifty a day to keep his son’s thirst quenched and his own sanity intact.


Those questions paid off. Following stints as a homeless guy, talking with the homeless and travelling the globe in search of truth, Jarrett eventually settled down and became a doctor.

Despite his practice, Jarrett also works with addicts to enable their hopeful return to society.

Please listen to these crucial tales  of helping people and later – in part two; Jarrett’s music and the process of creating disc number two …
