For most musicians, there is no free ride, no pot of gold, no label holding you hand. It’s a tough slog in the real world, but it is fulfilling, doing something you love and sharing your talents. Sibling duo Charm of Finches have taken the DIY path since they started, releasing a wonderful debut album in 2016, Staring at the Starry Ceiling. Now they are nearly ready to share their follow up, Your Company. They’ve launched a Pozible campaign to get them over the line with associated costs. We’ll share a special track and details how you can help support them. As well, it’s so good to have Ups and Downs back with an old favourite tune, a cracking song about climate change from Theories of Everything, we’ll introduce you to a wonderful label out of British Columbia in Kingfisher Bluez plus Jamie Hutchings, Gena Rose Bruce and the AMAZING Coda Chroma.
