CM Radio - Nov. 29, 2017 - APA's Ralph James & Miss Emily
Canadian industry icon Ralph James talks
We're thrilled to have industry icon Ralph James on the show. An inductee of the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame, James helped to launch APA's new Toronto office earlier this year after UTA ceased its Canadian operations. He tells Mike about his recent move, the health of Canada's live music market, how he recognizes talents like Marianas Trench and Nickelback early on, and a lot more. Miss Emily has been turning heads for years with her huge voice and unique foot-stomping hybrid of blues, jazz, and rock; however, her latest project, In Between - written and recorded with The Tragically Hip's Gord Sinclair and Rob Baker - is sure to propel her to a new plateau altogether. She tells us about the making of the album, the heightened emotions surrounding The Hip's emotional year, the story of how she accidentally ended up singing backups for Bruce Springsteen, and more.
