At The Edge Of Canada Special Presentation
on May 29,2014 by jared

An indepth conversation with one of the provinces best new talents!

Join host Liz Przybylski at 11am on Thursday, June 5th as she speaks with with one of Manitoba's most interesting up and coming songwriters, Leonard Sumner.  Sumner is an Anishinaabe MC/Singer-Songwriter from the Little Saskatchewan First Nation located in Interlake Region of Manitoba. He provides perspective from a voice often unheard and over-looked in the traditional music communities: truthful, insightful, and providing a new sound straight from ‘the Rez’. His music is best described as a fusion of Hip-Hop, Country and Rhythm & Blues.

His lyrics are intricate and honest, combine this with his powerful message and heart and listen as they massage into a raspy flow that growls with the bittersweet existential angst of Reserve Anishinaabe. On stage, he captivates crowds with a guitar slung over his shoulder, singing and rhyming to the beats, allowing his style to be enjoyed by people who typically ‘aren’t into rap.’

In Conversation With Emergent Vancouver MC Beka Solo

This Thursday, May 1, join guest interviewer Liz Przybylski as she speaks with Rebecca Solomon, who goes by the stage name of Beka Solo. Hailing from Nemiah Valley, a small community located in Central British Columbia, an area filled with beautiful mountains, lakes, and no electricity, Beka has been influenced by music throughout her whole life - all starting with rock music. Her dad and uncles have a band together called "Chilcotin Dream", and there are numerous stories of her falling asleep onstage while her family was playing past midnight.

In 2004, she started writing poems as a form of therapy. It was her way of dealing with sexual abuse and the loss of her mother from cancer when Beka was six. With her natural aggression, she was drawn towards hip hop, a medium which allowed her to express herself freely. In 2007 she first attempted to make her own beats, and in 2011 she left her comfort zone, moving to the city of Vancouver.

She graduated from the Professional Recording Arts Program at the Art Institute of Vancouver in December 2013. As she turned her own life trauma into motivation, this young lady sees herself as a role model for others. She has specifically chosen music to be a voice for the people, and to help create healing through music. She notes, "these gifts are borrowed, and this body is my temple. If I was born with a purpose, this is it right here. To inspire people to do chase what they love. Don't tell me the sky is the limit when there's foot prints on the moon." Beka Solo has released one 5 song EP, producing the beats, writing the lyrics, and mixing and mastering each track on her own. With the new year upon us, she's now hard at work, honing her craft and creating more inspiring music - keep a look out for Beka Solo, amazing up and coming artist artist to watch for in 2014 and beyond!
