Episode 270 – Leigh Filbert, songwriter for Volume, Filbatross, Squash and Buckethitch

June 22nd, 2020

Leigh Filbert, musician, songwriter and producer comes on the show to talk about his career in the Winnipeg music scene. From Squash, through Filbatross The Amazing Spider Band and Volume, Leigh has had a prominent voice of the Winnipeg songwriting and music scene. We share some stories about the creation of the Amazing Spider Band, the breakdown of Volume, and his beginnings in the Winnipeg Music Scene.

Let’s not be subtle here, Leigh has long been on Seanorama’s bucket list of people he has wanted to meet, and his work with Volume and the Amazing Spider Band puts Leigh’s work in the upper echelon of the best Winnipeg music has to offer.

Episode 269 – Broken - The State of Affairs

June 15th, 2020

This year has been brutal on so many fronts from COVID19, police brutality and JK Rowling. Will this be the year that history remembers and the year where everything changes forever? Will we unite or divide?

I am not alone in being emotionally wrung out. We all are frustrated and angry, anxious and depressed, and for every single light that shines through, another event comes up to shake our foundations.

Seanorama offers his thoughts on getting through it and ends the episode with the song Broken by Sean and Todd McGinity.

Special shout out to Hugo from Hugo’s Posts episode (below) that inspired this episode.
