Icons of Soul

If you’re going to lay down tracks with an iconic artist (a.k.a. Felix Cavaliere), you’d better have the right gear! 


So, we decided a quick trip to the famous Blackbird Audio was in order, and wow, speaking of the right gear!! Our goal: to rent the iconic U87 microphone (just had to do it). Countless producers have used the Neumann U87 to capture vocals, guitars, pianos, and all sorts of other instruments on some of the greatest songs in popular music since the 1950s.

Interview by Stephen Cooke


Luke McMaster hasn’t played Nova Scotia since his millennium-era Winnipeg duo McMaster & James graced the stage of the now-defunct New Palace cabaret, so you might expect there have been a few changes in his sound over nearly two decades.


“I don't even want to do the math on that one. . .” chuckles the Toronto-based songwriter and performer, who is delighted to catch up with East Coast audiences when he plays the Carleton Music Bar & Grill on Tuesday and Truro’s Marigold Cultu... Continue reading
