    Folk/Roots artist Mia Kelly on her single ‘Kitchissippi’, & more!

    Folk/Roots singer songwriter Mia Kelly joins the show to discuss her single ‘Kitchissippi’, & new album “Garden Through The War”!   "Kitchissippi" is an intimate and delicate ballad dedicated to the Ottawa River, using its traditional name in Algonquin. Located just steps away from her home in Gatineau, QC, the river has played a central role in Mia’s life and upbringing as a source of comfort and relaxation over the years. From learning how to swim for the first time to picnicking by the water with close friends, the river is ingrained in Mia's happiest memories.   During the pandemic, Mia sought solace in the form of river surfing, a lesser known variation of surfing which became an outlet for her to dispel her frustrations and negative emotions. In the midst of her daily practice of surfing the Ottawa River, Mia was spontaneously inspired to compose a song in its name.   Mia Kelly is a singer-songwriter from Gatineau, Quebec who writes and performs in both French and English.  Blending folk music with strong influences of blues, pop and americana, she is making her mark in the Canadian folk music scene at the age of 19.   Connect with Mia Kelly! —         —   Support Colton Gee and Desert Tiger ----- Check out our webstore @ Follow the Desert Tiger Podcast @   Follow Colton Gee @   -----

    Country artist Bree Taylor on her good time anthem "Sha La La"!

    Country singer songwriter Bree Taylor joins the show to take us behind her new good time anthem "Sha La La"!   “Sha La La” tosses back a shooter of summer fun and laughter, presenting a picture complete with not only memories of days gone by, but chances… Chances to create new ones, chances to sing along, and chances to fall in love with a brand-new track from a country powerhouse in the making.   For Bree Taylor, singing, writing, and performing were built into her DNA and, by the age of six, the soon-to-be breakout artist was already exhibiting signs of being a musician. Despite her hearing impairment, the youngster found her voice among choirs and eventually made her way to a recording studio in her teens. From her earliest beginnings to developing her niche, Bree Taylor found herself to be a country artist through and through — combining her passions to a sound nestled in the genre, resonating with her fans nationwide.   Connect with Bree Taylor —     —   Support Colton Gee & Desert Tiger ----- Check out our webstore @   Follow Colton Gee & Desert Tiger   -----

    Shiv of alt rock band Shiv and the Carvers on "Meat Machine"!

    Shiv of alt rock band Shiv and the Carvers on "Meat Machine"!

    Shiv of alt rock band Shiv and the Carvers joins the show to discuss the bands single "Meat Machine"!    “Meat Machine” lands as a “post-punk story of a bisexual woman emerging from quarantine, on the prowl for physical connection.” It drives out of the gates with pulsating percussion, matched solely by the vulnerabilities in Shiv’s authentic lyricism, sung in her ubiquitous vocal prowess. The song is equal parts rock, as it is sexy and alluring.    Recently Shiv was going under the musical moniker of Siobamm, Shiv's musical career was birthed from isolation caused by the pandemic, and the Roller Derby enthusiast found herself with the time to focus her attention on writing, recording and producing. Over time she would begin to build a group of musicians to represent her sound, which eventually grew into much more with the creation of Shiv & The Carvers!   Connect with Shiv and the Carvers! —         —   Support Colton Gee and Desert Tiger ----- Check out our webstore @ Follow the Desert Tiger Podcast @   Follow Colton Gee @   -----
