The Honeyrunners are a fusion of Rock with the weathered soul of Motown mixed in with some 60’s folk.  They have a second EP coming up this summer.  Their music has been part of national ad campaigns – from Bacardi to CocaCola, and they’ve performed in music festivals across Canada.

A Few Good Independents in the Field of Politics

Elections are coming up. Just how Independent are You? (Includes an Interview with Brent Rathgeber, MP for Edmonton-St. Albert, Alberta)

Last week we did an interview with Canadian singer/songwriter James Keelaghan.  And what I found interesting about James, is that for most of his 25-year music career, he worked as an independent artist.  He’s brilliant – talented – and one of the best singer/songwriters in Canada.  And we have some magnificent independent artists on the job right now throughout Canada. But what of the other professional arenas?  How far can you go working as an independent?  What about in politics?

Interested? It’s not too late to throw your hat in the ring! Tune in as we discuss the challenges of working as an Independent Member of Parliament.  During this segment we talk about the case example of Independent Member of Parliament Chuck Cadman – and bring it full circle with an interview with current Independent MP for Edmonton-St. Albert, Alberta, Brent Rathgeber.
