Our Host: MICHEL NERAY
is 1/5th of Jacques Russell Trio. JRT is always a bunch of fun, with eclectic mix of blues, jump blues, trucker blues, jazz and pop, and some quirky originals thrown in for good measure. As a solo artist, he writes singer-songwriter songs full of angst, emotional conflict, evocative imagery, and all kinds of good things.

JEFF EAGER
Jeff has performed on stage with rock icon Lenny Kravitz, accompanied The Voice France winner Yoann Freejay on tour, and worked with Canadian stars like Jully Black and Arkells. He’s toured the continent from Hollywood to Halifax, and did a European tour opening for Rick Astley. He’s also performed his original music at the TD Jazz Festival, Burlington Sound of Music Festival. Versatile through soul, rock, jazz, pop, funk and more… he’s one of Toronto’s most dynamic musicians.

This is the unreleased demo video for ‘Blink’. Guitar and vocals were recorded in a dorm room circa 2015, and producer Allister Bradley took those tracks away and worked his magic on them.

Fast forward to 2018 – I’d never made a music video before, and thought it might be fun to give it a go with the demo recording, and videographer Luke Camozzi. We shot two different versions in a friend’s Heritage home in downtown Uxbridge, and this version was done in one seamless take at the end of a long shoot day! If you haven’t seen the original demo video you can check it out here.

The official release of ‘Blink’ is coming 04.29.21 on all streaming services along with a rad new music video. Can’t wait to share!

Thank you to ‘Just Us Folk’ for including ‘Planks and Marietta’ in last weeks show.
