Title: A Musical Journey with Steven Page: Exploring Explosive Hits, Scarborough Roots, and Beyond


Hey there, music enthusiasts! Karim Kanji here, and I'm thrilled to bring you another exciting episode of our show. Today, we have the incredibly talented Steven Page joining us, and it's bound to be a conversation you won't want to miss.


We kick off the episode diving into the behind-the-scenes magic of the Trans Canada Highwaymen album Explosive Hits Vol 1. Gregg Tilston and I sit down with Steven to unravel the mysteries of this K-Tel tribute album. We explore the fascinating journey of selecting songs, navigating remote recording challenges during the pandemic, and the creative process behind the album's infomercial. It's a deep dive into the creative minds that brought this explosive project to life.


As we traverse the musical landscape, we also touch upon the profound impact that growing up in Scarborough had on Steven's musical journey and personal identity. We delve into the multicultural environment and the influential music programs that shaped his perspectives, ultimately paving the way for the formation of the iconic band, the Barenaked Ladies.


Steven Page generously shares personal anecdotes about his enduring friendships with fellow musicians, reflections on past collaborations, and his current endeavors, including work on a new record. The conversation takes an emotional turn as he recounts the powerful experience of singing Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" at Jack Layton's memorial service, shedding light on the pressure and honor of fulfilling Layton's request.


But that's not all – Steven treats us to a live performance, showcasing a song from his recent album. We also explore his regular live streams during the pandemic, where he shares his own creations and covers that resonate with his audience.


Our discussions extend to the world of music, touching on lost venues, Steven's eclectic music preferences, and the exciting details of an upcoming show on Easter weekend. Trust me; you won't want to miss the insights and revelations Steven has to offer.
