Best local releases

Sigrid Geddes-Twisted Gypsy-(Independent). Lives in Wilno. This deep folk album is Sigrid's first release. She wrote all the lyrics and music. It's her on guitar with strings bass! What a wild woman. Confident, yet reveals herself as vulnerable and open to change in general.

Church of Trees

Church Of Trees-Primitive Creatures-(Independent). Church of Trees is a debut collaboration by Otttawa Valley musicians Felicity DeCarle, Bernard Frazer, Jordon Zadorozny and Charlie Valentine. SOCAN release. Synth pop with wonderful female vocals. Produced by Jordon Zadorozny of Skylark  Park Studios in Pembroke.

Area Resident

Area Resident-Delano-(Area Resident Music). Area Resident is the non de plume of Doug Hempstead. Genre: Rock. Sophomore record. Doug is a multi instrumentalist, SOCAN member who write all lyrics and music. Produced by Jordon Zadorozny of Skylark Park Studios in Pembroke.
Vinyl release.

Best live show you saw this year

Weber Brothers at the Wilno Tavern in Wilno.

Best personal campus/community radio moment or experience of the year.

Interviewing Georgie Cogswell, who sang old “local” songs from the hippie days and told stories about those times.

Record you are most anticipating for 2018

New album by Jody DiGregorio (local).
