Aiza

We’ve had many people from the music industry on the podcast. Musicians, producers, singers and songwriters.

We’ve had guests such as Our Lady Peace, Jim Creeggan from the Barenaked Ladies, Maestro Fresh Wes, and Bif Naked to name a few.

We’ve also had newcomers such as Lu Kala.

Today, we have another newcomer. She’s already been recognized around the world for her singing and songwriting.

Please welcome to the Cadillac Fairview Toronto Eaton Centre studio Aiza!

This is Episode #189 of the Welcome! podcast.

Nicole Simone

Today’s episode is a reunion of sorts.

You see, one of my earliest interactions with Gregg Tilston was being interviewed by him for a job with Flight Centre. After I turned him down I told him one of my goals was to have him as a client. And while it didn’t happen while he was with Flight Centre he did sponsor an event I led: MusicConnectTO.

And today’s guest actually performed at that event as Late July. My next guest has been writing songs and performing for well over a decade. She is also the founder of the charity, Redemption Paws that has rescued hundreds and hundreds of dogs from the ravages of climate change and hurricanes.

Please Welcome to the Cadillac Fairview Toronto Eaton Centre studio, Nicole Simone.

Sammy Younan

After our summer vacation Gregg Tilston and I got back in studio for a chat with Girth Radio founder Sammy Younan.

We discussed the rise and fall (but not dead!) of Girth Radio’s longtime home at the Pacific Junction Hotel, what’s coming up at the Toronto International Film Festival, movie spoilers, and the all too important topic of urinal etiquette.

Thanks to CF Toronto Eaton Centre for hosting us in their pop-up studio!

My Favourite Song Part Three

Welcome to the third installment of the award-winning series (who are we kidding?), My Favourite Song.

This week is special. It features one of our favourite live acts, SATE. Gregg Tilston and I sat down with SATE earlier this spring after seeing her tear up the dance floor of the legendary Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto.

We asked her what her favourite song is. We should have known better. SATE shared with us almost a dozen songs. Here’s this week’s episode. We hope you enjoy!

This week’s guest is singer, songwriter SATE

She has even worked on more than 50 music videos for the likes of Tokyo Police Club and Maestro Fresh Wes.

Currently she is in-between festivals showcasing her latest project, her directorial debut, THE VAULT. Just in its first season, it is already a multi-award winning web series.

Patricia O’Callaghan

Vivascene has called my next guest “one of the best singers ever to come out of Canada.” The National Post said, “This Toronto soprano can sing a 100-year old German tune so lustily that you almost don’t need a translation to know that someone’s about to get his throat cut, or get laid, or both.”

My next guest is an award-winning classical singer who grew up in Northern Ontario wanting to be a rockstar. Or a nun.

Please Welcome to the show, Patricia O’Callaghan!

Mr Toilet: The World’s #2 Man

Mr. Toilet made its world premiere on April 27 2019 at North America’s largest documentary festival, Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival.

Nearly 60% of people worldwide do not have access to safe sanitation facilities.

Globally, almost a billion people continue to defecate in public which risks the spread of disease.

Everyday, 1,000 children die from water and sanitation-related diarrheal diseases. These deaths are preventable.

Please welcome to the show Director, Lily Zepeda and activist, Jack Sim.
