Hello Jim, Farewell Paul Quarrington

Definitely off the down troden path of pop music, the brilliant Paul Quarrington still reminds me that songwriting and the Canadian perspective is important and real. He was born in July, 1953 and in May of 2009, he got the sad news of being diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. On January 21, 2010, Paul Quarrington passed away at home in Toronto. The documentary of his work is encapsulated in the Bravo documentary Life in Music. So who was Paul Quarrington? He was a Canadian, a screenwriter, a playwright, a singer, a novelist, a musician, an educator, a creator.

Big Jet Plane, Now Playing

Angus and Julia Stone are the brother and sister dynamic duo from Australia, signing on to Nettwerk Records for their North American distribution and world domination. I love their artist website, just as cool and innovative as their sound. Nothing like the drivel that drowns our daily airwaves, poisoning our senses with gruesome sounds. No, this band is different. You're gonna like em.
