I just want to say that I am very pleased to be included in this. I have had the pleasure of helping out Habitat for Humanity, working on several homes as a volunteer, and I think it is a very worthy and beneficial cause. Thank you for including me and my band JEZEBELS KISS! I would have liked to call in during the broadcast but we were on stage during that time.
Ah yes. The Canadian Prairie Music scene which you mentioned in the JUST ROCK broadcast might need a bit of explanation. The geographic area generally covers the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. The region has spawned some interesting music talent over the years; some widely known, some known mostly above the 49th parallel. Some of the names include The Guess Who, Neil Young, Streetheart, Colin James, Jack Semple, Joni Mitchell, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Tom Cochrane, Nickelback, Crash Test Dummies, Ian Tyson, The Watchmen, Bachman-Turner-Overdrive to name some. Although many had relocated to larger centers in Canada and the USA for practical reasons, where the biz is more bustling. The region continues to give birth to interesting young musicians and music. Hahaha. It's something about those cold winters that makes people want to stay inside, h*** up and practice, write and jam with their buddies. Hey I know from experience. Since moving here to the mild, temperate Canadian west coast 20 years ago,... the prairie winters are just a memory to me. This is just a very brief description, but it may help to make the term "Canadian Prairie music" scene a little less abstract and more meaningful. Thanks again for all your generous and kind words about me and my music. By the way,... your song on the JUST ROCK album is AWESOME, dude!!! What an incredible voice you have!!!
