Ryan Hemsworth & The East Pointers - Opposite Ends of the Sonic Spectrum

Celtic folk trio The East Pointers & electro-pop producer Ryan Hemsworth

Show notes

This week, a pair of artist interviews from opposite ends of the sonic spectrum.

JUNO Award-winning, PEI-based trio The East Pointers have been making big waves in the roots music community with their infectious fusion of folk, trad, and pop sensibilities and thrilling live shows. Their latest album, What We Leave Behind, takes it further with the help of East Coast legend Gordie Sampson in the producer’s chair. The full band joins Mike to discuss their musical backgrounds, developing their sound, working with Sampson, dealing with critical folk and trad purists, roots music’s industry infrastructure, and more.

Plus, we catch innovative electronic songwriter and producer Ryan Hemsworth to chat about Elsewhere, which Pitchfork says is ripe with "catchy, globe-trotting pop." Ryan tells Andrew about compiling a diverse guestlist of collaborators from around the world, finding common ground with other creators, how his Halifax roots may have seeped into his output, and more.
