Broadcast Date – February 24, 2021
Our chats will be just that very conversational, not entirely sensible and with any luck totally enjoyable…
And I don’t mind saying this chat was crazy long overdue but oh my goodness so worth the wait. I’ve been celebrating the career of this incredibly talented award-winning singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist since the very early days of SEA AND BE SCENE. In fact, her’s was one of our first Cool People Profiles on the site back in 2010. Fast forward to just this past fall when she was the very first personality featured in our GET SOCIAL spotlight on EAST COAST CURATOR. And all the time in between she has released a series of stellar songs of her own, racked up almost 80 album credits playing for other artists, oh and toured as a member of NL Supergroup Hey Rosetta! And if all that wasn’t enough she’s just launched an awesome new music series via her new site violinwithkinley.com where folks can sign up and learn from the PEI-born PRO. So yes we’ve got plenty of ground to cover – and we’ll get to that and so much more – including how it feels to have her music placed in movies and TV shows, how one of her songs became a theme song for the Gentle Island and the very wise advice she received that has since become her mantra. Plus we’ll get to First Things First, play a fun round of INsights IN 10 and naturally squeeze in as much of her marvellous music as we can within the hour – so with all that ahead we best get to it. Here’s my conversation with the one and only Kinley Dowling. (You’ll find the player at the bottom of this post)
