Murray Foster: musician, songwriter

Murray is best known for his work as bassist in the Canadian bands Moxy Früvous and Great Big Sea. In 2014, he directed the Independent Film, “The Cocksure Lads Movie” which is now being developed into a musical “Chelsea Sunrise” with the Canadian Music Theatre Project at Sheridan College.

You’ll hear how he wrote the songs for the play and why he never received the investment he was offered when he appeared on the TV show “Dragon’s Den.”

Singer, songwriter Carole Pope is known for pushing the boundaries of sexuality, sexual politics and the status quo.

Pope co-wrote the hit song “High School Confidential” for her band Rough Trade in 1980. It was one of the most sexually explicit songs in pop music.

We talk about her songwriting process, her most recent recording “Music for Lesbians” and her book “Anti-Diva” a no-holds-barred look at her adventures in the music scene – on the concert stage, in the recording studio, and in the bedroom.

See Carole Pope perform at Revival House in Stratford, Friday, August 11, 2018 at 9pm.

Please note this podcast was recorded in 2015.
