The Many Sides of SATE, Canada’s Reigning Blues-Punk-Rock Queen

An engaging and insightful conversation with one of Canada's most charismatic artists, SATE, about songwriting, being a Black woman in punk rock, the lessons of her iconic mother & much more

Show notes

On the podcast this week, Mike is thrilled to be chatting with SATE, who is one of the most captivating and interesting blues/punk/rock artists to come out of Canada in some time. Her new album, The Fool, is now out and she gets into the writing process behind it, and also discusses the therapeutic nature of songwriting, punk’s roots in the blues, how she doesn’t quite fit with any specific music scene, being a Black woman in rock, and a lot more. As well, she speaks openly and warmly about her mother’s influence on her life and career. Her late mother, if course, is the legendary Salome Bey, who is known as “Canada’s first lady of the blues.”
