Et voilà que la première édition du Festival Transistor s’est conclue hier soir par un immense sentiment de satisfaction. Projet ayant éclos autour d’une bière consommée par deux des têtes pensantes de la région, celles de Steven Boivin et Julien Morissette, cette idée de festival visait à mettre en lumière le potentiel de la baladodiffusion à l’ère du numérique.

STRONGwriter: a workshop essential for the songwriter at heart

Ottawa’s North Easton is a man who never stops thinking, learning, creating, dreaming, re-inventing himself, and delving deep to learn more about the human condition and the world we live in.
