Michelle Rumball

Michelle Rumball has been a fixture of the Toronto Music scene for almost 20 years.  In the early 90s she was lead singer for folk-rock legends, The Grevious Angels.  She now writes and performs as a solo singer-songwriter, as a member of the new trio Beauty Saloon, and in a number of bands around Toronto.  I caught up to her at the wonderful Rockin’ The Cradle series of concerts promoted by my sister as a venue for people who love music with babies and young children.

Alyssa Wright Don Bray, The Brights

I’ve known Don Bray for about 17 years.  We met at an open stage, and I was struck by his insightful lyrics and virtuoso musicianship from the first time I heard him.  He was one of the first people I wanted to interview for my podcast but it took a couple years for us to connect.  It was worth the wait.  I think it’s fitting that he is my guest for episode 100.

We sat down in a quiet room during our songwriting group’s annual winter getaway weekend.  He was accompanied on vocals, Cello, and title reminders by Alyssa Wright.  Don and Alyssa are both solo performers but they have also released their first CD as The Brights: Live, Love, Dream.

Jody Gnant, Sean McGaughey, Zina Gomez-Liss

Last summer,  I attended Podcamp Boston.  While Zina (from the Secrets of Battlestar Galactica Podcast) and I were walking in downtown Boston heading for lunch, we saw a beautiful young lady walking down the street talking into laptop held in front of her.  It turned out that she streams her whole life on the Internet.  Later at podcamp, I ran into her again and introduced myself.  She is Jody Gnant and she has an amazing story to tell about indie marketing over the net.  She actually traded one year’s rent on her house in Phoenix to Kyle MacDonald from one red paperclip for studio time to complete her album.  We talked at the end of a long day at Podcamp Boston about songwriting, new media, and took questions from her live streaming audience.   Check out her music and lifecast at jodygnant.com.
