    CCR Podcast | Season Two Recap

    CCR Podcast | Season Two Recap

    This is Mark Rodgers, your producer for season two of the Capital City Records podcast in partnership with the CKUA Radio Network and the Edmonton Public Library. I put together this last episode to recap the season and use some audio clips that didn’t land in the original episodes. Also if you listen till the end you’ll hear some of the outtakes which are always fun.
    In producing this season I confirmed what I had known all along. Edmonton is a healthy close-knit community, by no means perfect, but positive with energy and a quiet momentum that will hopefully continue. In talking with people about other people in the scene, nothing but positive vibes is the consistent aspect of the discourse. 
    This podcast is about the music living on the website of Capital City Records which is an amazing digital snapshot of the Edmonton music scene. It’s also a free way to access local artists while seeing them getting compensated for their  music being consumed at the same time.
    Voices featured this season include: Kennedy Jenson, Dave Sawchuk, Dan Lenz, Brittany Lyne Rudyck, Jason Norman, Brent Oliver, Mike Ross, Ben Sures, Tyler Butler, Philip Muz, Kat Danser, Lindsey Walker, Beth Portman, Amy Van Keeken, Celeigh Cardinal, F and M, Jesse Northy, Dave Von Bieker.

    CCR Podcast | Wilfred N & the Grown Men 'I'm In Love with the City'

    CCR Podcast | Wilfred N & the Grown Men 'I'm In Love with the City'

    This week’s episode features long time Edmonton musician and arts administrator Brent Oliver chatting about the legendary Edmonton act Wilfred N and the Grown Men and the song ‘I’m In Love with the City’ as found on Capital City Records.  
    Edmonton’s Wilfred Kozub has a long history of making rock and pop music sprinkled with innovation and electronic experimentation. Wilfred N & the Grown Men grew out of the New Wave music phenomenon of the early 80s when Wilfred and his band mate, Jamie Philp, hunkered down in Kozub’s basement recording studio. They produced a string of radio singles and the early album that spawned the hits "I Could Get Closer To You" and the still-well-loved title track, "Thunder on the Tundra". You can now find their 2013 album ‘I’m In Love with the City’ on Capital City Records.
    Brent Oliver is in love with the city, having moved to Winnipeg and back. He is heavily involved through his work as the City of Spruce Grove Arts Director , UP+DT Festival Director, Alberta Music - Director/ Vice Chair and BOP MGMT Director. His resume expands over three decades in Edmonton and along with Wilfred N and the Grown Men, they have made Edmonton a healthy place to live with their contributions to the arts.

    CCR Podcast | Kimberley MacGregor ‘Building a Case’

    CCR Podcast | Kimberley MacGregor ‘Building a Case’

    This week’s guest host is Celeigh Cardinal, a future Capital City Records artist. Look out for her soon-to be released record “Everything or Noting at All” on Capital City Records. Celeigh chats about Kimberley MacGregor and her song “Building a Case”, the second last selection on Kimberley’s record “I am My Own” as found on Capital City Records.
    According to Kimberley’s website , she is reformed bank manager, Kimberley realized she was doing a successful job of living someone else’s life—and a poor job living her own. In 2013, she launched her original songs into the world and took centre stage. She has since released two full-length albums and was awarded Female Artist of the Year at both the 2015 and 2016 Edmonton Music Awards. Other nominees from the Edmonton Music Awards are also found on Capital City Records.
    Celeigh is from the north country of Alberta and moved to Edmonton in 2010. She can perform solo, with her duo, trio or full band. A Celeigh Cardinal performance is a profound, soulful triumph of songs that blend roots, folk, rock and pop. Her voice at once evokes gentleness and control which can turn to raucous, gut wrenching, twisted, turn-yourself-inside-out blues within a single phrase.
