Al Douglas knows how to get it done

MoeTown
by Moe

Happy fall! I hope everyone had a lovely summer. Mine was filled with working, walking, and a few music festivals. Now that the weather is getting chilly, I’m replacing festivals with writing, so I sat down with Al Douglas to see what he’s been up to.

Which, it turns out, is a lot. He works for Cavendish Beach Music Festival, Big Red Music Festival,

Katie McGarry creates new songs to sing

MoeTown
by Moe

Katie McGarry was 10 when she first started playing the guitar. Sixteen years later, listening to her lyrics, she makes it sound so easy, so I was curious as to what goes into writing one of those songs: “It’s after I’m inspired by something,” says Katie, “whether it’s going to see someone’s show…it sparks this inspiration. For me, if it’s a chorus or a verse, I wri

Mike Carver seems to be a man of half a million hats. He’s in: Milks & Rectangles (although, they’re on hiatus while Christian is in England, working together mostly via e-mail); The drummer for North Lakes, who will be going to NxNE and also S.C.E.N.E Festival in St. Catherines; Fox & the Hound with Emilee Sorrey (which is

Matt Steele mixes live sound for more and more Island shows

Matt Steele’s first love is making music with his band, Bad Mountie. But there’s already been a Buzz article about them so I decided to sit down with Matt to chat about his second passion: doing sound for live events. He simply calls it “making other people sound good,” and make them sound good he does.

He almost became a lawyer

Shannon Pratt takes on vital roles within the PEI music scene

MoeTown
by Moe

How do you get to be the band manager for one of the hottest bands in Charlottetown right now? Well, for Shannon Pratt, it actually started in Ontario. She studied Television Broadcasting at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario, then headed west to Vancouver where she switched gears and started working in the film business

Interviewing the man behind Hunter’s, Globe and The Factory

MoeTown
by Moe

Steve Barber can be a man of few words at times, while at other times, a man of seemingly infinite stories. When you’ve been running one of Charlottetown’s hottest spot for live shows for roughly eight years, this really shouldn’t be a surprise.

Moe: How did you get to own three venues?

Steve: I used to run Route 66, a small

Meaghan Blanchard

MoeTown
by Moe

Meaghan Blanchard wrote her first song at age 11. She couldn’t play guitar yet, so took her piece of paper with her song scrawled in crayon to her dad and got him to play music to it. Of course, to get into an 11-year-old’s head is a challenge at the best of times. Not happy with dad’s efforts, she stormed off and learned how to play herself.

For her whole life, Meaghan has been surrounded

Ten Strings and a Goatskin

Moetown
by Moe

I’m starting to see a trend; the musicians who catch my ear tend to have started playing when they were kids. Caleb Gallant at around age 8, Jesse Pèriard at 7 with the guitar, and Rowan Gallant also at 8 with the fiddle. (Maybe I should have stuck with the piano way back when. Sorry, mom.)

While Rowan, Caleb, and Jesse were heading back from their very first sound check, a friend of

Jordan Cameron

Moetown
by Moe

Here I am, a little unsure as to what direction I should take in my first column. Maybe I’ll just let it have it’s own life, see where it takes me. For my first article I figured I should go easy on myself. Talk to someone I know and like, who I’m already comfortable with: Jordan Cameron.

Jordan has been on my music radar since his first EP, Drawing from Observation back in late 2009.
