For our feature interview this week, Andrew chats with Canadian country star Lindsay Ell, who followed up her breakout LP The Project with another hugely successful effort, Heart Theory, in mid-August. American Songwriter magazine called it a "career-altering album" in their high-profile cover story, and we ask Lindsay how she feels about the remarkable reception in addition to discussing the making of the record, balancing her prowess as a singer and guitarist in the studio and on stage, the increasing prevalence of Canadian country hitmakers, and more.
But before our chat with Lindsay, Mike also caught up with the guys from Canadian country-rock band Petric. They talk about recording their latest single while being separated because of the pandemic, how they plan to release and promote their new EP, Flashbacks, and the coming full LP despite not being able to tour. They guys also chat songwriting, how they got endorsed by PRS Guitars, and more.
