Lindsay Beaver is the real thing …
Thus far , it has been a lifetime of discoveries for the native of Nova Scotia. Singing, drumming and a love of all genres of music starting with Jazz.
Yet it was Billie Holiday that sealed the deal and inspired Lindsay to pack up and head to Texas and make music her full time ‘job’.
Please listen below to my chat with Lindsay – a musician who has been referred to as a cross between Amy Winehouse and Little Richard.
Lindsay? What’s up?
It’s been a while since Jack DeKeyzer first heard the Blues …

Colin James has a new album due out on September 21st. No more hair dye as the fifty-three year old Canadian music legend embraces the present, the future and the past.
On the new record – Colin pays homage to the men ( and women) who inspired him and helped him to hone his skills as a young guitar player busking on the streets of Montreal and Toronto.
Two new songs on the disc also allow James the opportunity to gently give a nod to the licks of B.B. King.
Please listen below to my chat with Colin about the new disc and hear Colin’s thoughts about the late great Jeff Healey.

At one point in time – Randy Bachman was one half of a songwriting tandem which outsold The Beatles and Rolling Stones. Not bad for a boy / man from Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Randy Bachman has a new album.
Heavy Blues is the name of the disc and it includes several well known special guests. Some of whom – more than familiar to Canadian music fans.

Jeff Healey was one of a kind …
There were many guitarists better than him. He was better than many guitarists. The one thing that set Jeff apart was something many do not have.
Courage to obtain goals. One thing which made Jeff the man whose legacy will remain forever. Because of courage.
