Episode 22: "You just scat all over that!" With guest Emilie-Claire Barlow
IN THIS EPISODE:
Thanks to the power of social media, Duchess learned that we were on tour in Toronto at the same time as Juno award-winning Canadian vocalist Emilie-Claire Barlow. On the floor of our hotel room (with Bugles aplenty, natch), we had a ball chatting with Emilie-Claire, who has been a professional musician since she was in the single digits, beginning as a session singer in her native Toronto.
In this, the first episode of season two, we cover a lot of ground: the joys and challenges of arranging, the perils of perfectionism, and why Emilie-Claire is in love with Oaxaca. We also discuss the arts high school Emilie-Claire and Amy both attended, as well as Emilie's week on an ice-breaker in the Arctic, her many carton voices, and the term "scat." (To be more specific: we giggle about the word's etymological relationship to poop. We are only grown-ups on the outside, it seems.)
