Show notes

On the podcast this week, Mike is joined by acclaimed songwriter and guitarist Brad Barr, who is best known for his Juno-nominated work in alt-Americana group The Barr Brothers. Brad and Mike discuss his entire musical career, from his early days in The Slip, he and his brother’s move to from the U.S. to Montreal, and their work together as The Barr Brothers. Then, Brad gets into the unique creation of his latest solo LP, the guitar-driven instrumental record The Winter Mission, including the gear used and the odd writing methods he deployed. Brad also tries to decipher his fixation with the number 216 and how that influenced the record.
