The New Customs are an incredible duo out of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Their music is the ultimate in the tradition of the story telling minstrels of old. Their folk style music creates an enjoyable platform with which to deliver their socially significant lyrics and view points. Make sure you visit their website and pick up their latest two albums All Walls Fall and Selling Religion On Government Street.
I'm joined today by Rudy Sager and Warren Bruns at The Iron Kettle restaurant in Creston, B.C. as we interview J.P. Mortier, singer/songwriter from Montreal. J.P. is 1/2 way through his western tour promoting is 6th album, Nation of Iron. This album is somewhat a departure from his previous works in that it is more socially conscious dealing with political, equality, oppression and climate change issues. His percussive guitar style (heavy Latin influence) and socially conscious and poignant lyrics will stir the inner anarchist in you and awaken your sense of equality for all - not just the rich and privileged.
