Halifax Canada’s Rose Cousins brought nothing more than herself and a couple instruments for her in-studio performance at WERS for live music week.

The band initially began as a collaboration between Samira and Nolan Eley, Winter’s lead guitar player and also a member of […]

The spectacled, scruffy Adelstein alternated between the piano and acoustic guitar as he warmed up, focused and calm, casually belting out bits and pieces of his catalogue of songs. Completely […]
