Once again, the collection is a nice variance in styles. The artists performing are semi-recent guests: Evan Corneil, Sam Nabi, Tessa, Jessie T, Milana Boss, Mike Sharp, TayLynn and Paige Warner. Enjoy! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/todddonaldshow/message

061 - Erin Wetzel

2020-01-2701:05:52

Erin Wetzel is KW’s 2019 Miss Oktoberfest, a life-long girl guide with a gift of cookies-in hand.. and a ray of warm sunshine as we continue through the dead of winter. We had a lovely chat about Erin, what she stands for, the role-model she hopes to be, the life-lessons she’s learned going into becoming today’s Miss O and more! I couldn’t be happier that this nice convo would be the last new one, recorded for this podcast. // Featuring some brand new music by JP Sunga, John Maskym, and some amazing music by Montreal’s Peach Guevara. Enjoy, and thanks for listening!

060 - Paige Warner, Part 2

060 - Paige Warner, Part 2

2020-01-2000:46:33

Paige Warner is an exceptional artist from this region, and I couldn’t be happier as a 35-year-old, to be a genuine fan of new music. Self-described as a diverse artist, you can feel R & B pulling some reigns, but not type-casting this 20-something's sound one bit. She’s a vocal powerhouse, with a personality as sweet as lemonade. Feel free to do the prep-work of listening to her first two chats/performances with me in episode 003… either way, you can now join us as we’re following up, following the online release of her most recent single “I Don’t Need Boys”.

059 - Sandra Dynka, Part 2

2019-12-1801:01:08

Sandra Dynka is an amazing person, full of excitement and an agenda to take on the world. She choses to devote her life to empowering others and figuring out the best ways to do that, is her chosen battleground. Coming to this episode from her prior appearance (episode 036), Sandra is re-configuring her identity from being KW Miss Oktoberfest, to make her mark on the world as Sandra. We explored her inner journey had time to goof off as well, great year!!! Enjoy! // Featuring music by Leila, Naked-Flubber & Glenna Garramone, as well as past guests Ophelia Syndrome.

Jessie T, an accomplished singer/songwriter, pop, rock & country artist from Waterloo Region and judge on music competition show The Shot.. just happens to also be a good friend of mine, and yes, I’m kinda bragging. But the reason we’re friends is because of who we are as people, and genuine care, and it’s all over this episode, at a very un-nerving and stressful time of year. We centered ourselves with a long friends-only chat, at Descendants Brewery in Kitchener, then I turned the mic’s on. Enjoy! // Featuring music by the guest, as well as Good Lovelies, Jamie Warren & Lusterfield.

TayLynn, I met on instagram, while recording the previous episode with Milana and Mike. She’s a singer/songwriter from just outside of Kitchener-Waterloo who’s also attended the same open-mics, just on days I didn’t make it… sad I am now that i’ve heard her superb music! Her new debut EP “They Know” absolutely floored me. So then this happened. We had an in-depth chat about the artist she’s become and the artist she wants to be, creative process and more. Breathtaking voice. Enjoy! // Featuring live performances by the guest, as well as music by Sue Passmore.

Milana Boss & Mike Sharp are two exquisite singer/songwriters, both solo and collaboratively, in this case or moment in time, collaborative. I met them at local open mics, Waterloo’s Patent Social, and Kitchener’s Rhapsody Barrell Bar, and was instantly floors by their sophisticated songwriting and refined vocal delivery. We met up at Descendants Brewery in Kitchener to chat about being indie musicians, and also, whatever other Pog-sized nuggets would fall out of our heads.

Jesse Parent again! You’ve now heard part 2 of us (in episode 020), and part 3 (in episode 054)… so here’s the episode from the vault, part 1, from February 2018 on Todd’s Café. Jesse came by, we shot the shit, he played a couple tunes, and it was awesome. If you didn’t already know, Jesse is a superb song-craftsman and performer, constantly getting better and consistantly working. Enjoy! // Featuring live performances by the guest.

Jesse Parent, whom you may’ve heard earlier this year (in episode 020), returns, a third time actually… that was his 2nd appearance, his 1st was on my last podcast Todd’s Café (you’ll get that re-presented soon on TDS). Jesse met up with me at Descendants Brewery to do some more chatting, and split the atom where we hadn’t before… maybe we went off and all over the rails this time, I’m not sure, but it was a lot of fun! We may have branched off into movies and ranty rants. Jesse just released a new album “Somedays, Tomorrows and Best Laid Plans” which is a mix of studio & live! Enjoy! // Featuring music by the guest, as well as Calliope’s Radio & New York’s Kristina Stapelfeld.

053 - Robin + Elaine

2019-11-1500:52:03

Robin Lindner & Elaine Decleir are the #bossbabes behind now-Kitchener/Waterloo-based company and branding firm ‘Robin + Elaine’, they are also the force behind ‘KW Famous’ which spotlights some of the region’s famous and timeless pinpoints. I wanted to chat with them about what they do, as well as try and break through the we-met-online social barrier, and clown around. Recorded at Workhaus. Enjoy! // Featuring music by Mike Todd, as well as past guests Paige Warner, A New Ground & Jerelle.

After a brief re-introduction to that which I call the “vault”, I re-introduce you to my past guest, KW singer/songwriter Jessie T (whom is scheduled to make a new appearance on TDS). She stopped by the apartment back in February 2018 to make an appearance on my past podcast Todd’s Café and perform a couple of tunes. We talk about her songwriting and where she’s been to-date! // Featuring live performances by the guest.

Carlotta Trenholm is a shiatsu therapist and live local music fan, that I met on the street. Literally. We met just outside of Kitchener’s downtown Market, and co-ordinated this via our mutual friend and past guest Cuneyt. This chat was recorded at Descendants Brewery, and was full of laughter and philosophy, particularly the school of thought behind her practice. What is Shiatsu, exactly? This is your chance to have a fun time learning about it. Enjoy! // Featuring by Matt York, Vienna D’Amato Hall, Mo Pair, as well as a brand new live-off-the-floor acoustic set by upcoming guest Jessie T, recorded exclusively for this episode!!!

050 - Tessa

050 - Tessa

2019-10-3101:00:36

Tessa goes back almost to the beginning with me, I almost feel like we’re related.. so as out-of-touch as we are these days, we can easily drift back into the comfort zone conversationally, without any effort. In the time we’ve known each other alone, Tessa’s musical gift has been poured into her own singer/songwriter stuff, but bands Red Balloon, The Short Films, other types of creative projects, she’s been a local advocate, run for City Council, appears in the local tv show project Kitchener Sync, and more recently has birthed an initiative/event called Waterloo Region Crossing, which is a series of endurance events that raise awareness about pressing local issues… she almost, never, stops, which is her life-long endurance run, to live and give. Fuck. Enjoy! // Featuring a live performance by the guest, as well as music by Glenna Garramone, The Good Lovelies, Mike Erb Trio, as well as out-of-towners, Mansionair.

049 - Sam Nabi

049 - Sam Nabi

2019-10-1801:08:14

Sam Nabi is a gentleman I met over 10 years ago, when he was in Waterloo University, and my friend/co-hort Carrie Humphries was booking artists to perform in a no-longer-existant room in Waterloo’s Mongolian Grill. We meet again randomly at the open-mics at Rhapsody in Kitchener. It’s been great being back in touch with Sam in general, and our long-lost friend conversation transitioned smoothly from the past to the present to the future, with a mix of the evolution of how indie artists put out music, to Sam’s transition from singer/songwriter to hip-hop artist. Enjoy! // Featuring live performances by the guest, as well as music by past guests Jesse Parent & Twas Now.

2019-10-0400:49:56

Evan Corneil is a singer/songwriter, fairly new to the Waterloo region, who I’ve met and been seeing perform regularly at the Rhapsody Barrell Bar open-mic night. Not only is he a swell young creative lad, but he’s a sweet down to earth lad that’s super fun to talk to. He stopped by and we had a ball with the conversation, I hope you like it as well? Plus, Evan was of course gangster enough to perform some live stuff, so, yeah! Enjoy! // Featuring live performances by the guest, as well as music by Amy Rola and California’s Jonah Ray.

047 - Brittany Pyatt

2019-09-2600:55:37

Brittany Pyatt is a stand-up comedian, that unlike allot of my more recent guests, I actually met in-person, at a local bar/music venue. Given that I don’t know allot of people in the stand-up genre, it was nice to just have a one-on-one chat with someone, who is also a big advocate of local music. It helps that we know allot of the same peeps and local bands. This chat ended up being a deeper and darker conversation than I was expecting, but let me tell you, it wasn’t unwelcome! This ‘humanity’ thing, that’s what i’m ALL about. Enjoy! // Featuring music by CityWide Panic, Jessie T, Mike Todd, Kristina Stapelfeld & Carly and Mark.

046 - Beware of HopeFest

2019-09-1601:44:46

Jerelle & Sofia I heard about through the grapevine, but was instantly enamoured by what their social media presence informed me of, particularly the music and energy of the artist/performers. I had the chance to meet-up with them for coffee in Burlington just to talk about music and the interview prospect, and couldn’t have had a better time. I was anxious to see them again and talk about pretty much anything, but of course there’s a focus here on their art and what they’re planning on doing with it. // Kyle Wappler was a gentleman I first discovered as a fan of Ape Audio, they had the so-called “Scene Daddy” on their show already, and I was hoping to use my show as another olive branch of promotion for the upcoming HopeFest 2019, STILL hoping i’ll get him back on for a bigger feature, but he was nice enough to stop by, promote the event, and demonstrate why he is in fact, the Scene Daddy! Enjoy! // Featuring music by guest Jerelle, as well as California’s Kali Kazoo & Jonah Ray.

Sarah Lexia, the “Aussie in Sarnia”, what an exploration to go through in that alone. I fucking love Australian shit, so I’m glad I had the chance to have coffee in Sarnia with this legend in her own time, and talk about all things being a ‘public figure’ and try to break down what exactly is involved in that, what is behind that… and of course we had a ball talking nonsense and pop-culture. She’s absolutely fabulous! Enjoy! // Featuring music by Harriet Nauer, Stephen Trothen, Sue Passmore, The Lofi-Mind and YouTuber Bailey Pelkman, as well as past guest Vienna D’Amato Hall.
