Description

Neel, Alex, Micah, Michael, and Phil

This week singer-songwriter and Hamilton Arts Award for Emerging Artist winner (2019) Alex Whorms joined us to talk about her sophomore EP, Burgundy, and two of the songs.


We talked about:



  • FACTOR grants and Canada’s Music Incubator (check out our episodes on grants and music royalties)

  • how long to take to get to the chorus

  • finding the right amount of instrumental activity when you’re singing

  • how Alex always gets through the skeleton of a song right away when writing
