Born on the island of Jersey, John Wort Hannam brought the independent spirit of his birthplace with him when he settled in Fort Macleod, Alberta. Releasing albums on his own and with Black Hen Music, he has been spinning tales of the working man that resonate with each listener. Every songwriter has a tale to tell, and John Wort Hannam has a gift for weaving narratives about his new home in Western Canada.
Our team at CJSW's The Morning After are proud to claim him as an Albertan, and as an incredible talent very close to home.

Chris Gheran is a name you’ll hear often as you begin to plunder the depths of Calgary’s folk music scene. He’s a child of two worlds who brings a fresh take on old-timey folk sensibilities. He manages to bridge the gap between popular culture and music from the days of yore, and it’s a beautiful synthesis. He’s written tracks about our fair city of Calgary, encapsulating the culture beyond the logo-adorned skyscrapers of downtown. As part of the Calgary Folk Music Festival’s Musicians in Motion, he collaborated with Ian Tyson while performing live on the Calgary public transit. There’s really no telling what he’s got up his sleeve for us next, and that’s just the way he likes it.

The voice of Alana Stuart glides around and through beats by Pho as Bonjay takes you on a ride through dancehall, R&B, and electronica. As you listen, you can hear influences from all over the globe, picking out rhythms from Africa and the Caribbean with the pop and rock influences of North America and Europe. They’re a high-octane experience, and they’re not quite like anything else. Other bands have tried to sound like what’s happening in New York, London or Los Angeles, but Bonjay’s put Ottawa on the map.

Calling all independent musicians and record collectors from Ontario, Canada! If you're an independent musician, involved in the music industry in any way or are just a huge fan of music, we need your help:
The Ontario Independent Music Archive (OIMA) will collect and preserve new and older independent music from across the province of Ontario, Canada including releases that were only issued in limited runs on cassette and vinyl. Through a Creative Commons license listeners will have free access to all content on the archive, giving them the chance to dig into Ontario's musical past while also discovering new independent artists in all creative styles. The project is being undertaken by the National Campus and Community Radio Association (www.ncra.ca) in partnership with the Music Association of Canada, and is funded by a similar grant to what got the FMA up and running.
We're particularly looking for music that's not easily accesible online or that's in danger of being lost or forgotten about, but anything that is underrepresented and sufficiently Ontarian is welcome on the archive.
The full site is expected to go live this December. In the meantime, check out:

:: Facebook group

Isle of Pine is the solo project of Montreal's Tim Beeler, whose self-imposed recording limitations saturate his personable songwriting with a familiar 4-track tape hiss bliss. Recorded through a $4 karaoke microphone, And Farther Away is brought to us by curator CKUT out of McGill University. Coat of Arms (Farther Away) is the album opener, but be sure to check out 1 (Maine) if you're looking for even more Neutral Milk Hotel vibes.
Isle of Pine on:
