Joseph Hirabayashi is a highly respected multi-instrumentalist, music teacher member of Vancouver bands Aunts & Uncles and SPRING (formerly SSRIs). We speak to Joseph on the phone today about is rock operetta contribution to this weekend’s musical event Spatial Poetics XII: Release Me – an evening of experimental and collaborative performances by an eclectic line-up of Asian Canadian artists.
The Australian part of the show begins with tracks from Brisbane band The Bloodpoets before our second interview, this time with Timothy Poitras, a singer-songwriter who operates in Australia under the name Ocean Leaves. Timothy grew up in Ontario and relocated to Queensland four years ago, before marrying and finally settling down in the Blue Mountains, NSW. Timothy reveals his musical and cross-oceanic journey today and we air tracks from his debut EP ‘Always Is The Time To Make Everything’. With such strong Australian/Canadian connections, Ocean Leaves seems born for ‘Stranded’!
