Broadcast Date: September 11, 2019
I’ve gotta say it was a total treat catching up with today’s guest – at the tender age of 18 she’s already an award winning artist – a member of the musical theatre community in her home town of St.John’s NL and a seasoned solo performer in her own right with around 100 gigs a year that just recently included her first European dates. A gifted singer/songwriter and musician – who’s original tunes have been featured in popular TV shows and one of the first artists ever to have a song selected for the highly respected Hal Leonard International publication of music – and on top of all of that she’s got a brand new EP set to drop Friday, September 20th with a truly fresh new sound – so we’ll talk about all of that and so much more including her love of live performance, her hands on approach to making music and her unsettling Netflix selections, plus we’ll play a fun round of First Things First, a semi-disillusioning round of INsights IN 10 and of course play as much of her marvelous music as we can squeeze into the hour. So without further ado – here’s my conversation with the one and only Rachel Cousins.
