Jared Davidson


Jared's love of Ottawa builds up to the point where he must purge it from his system, post by post. When he's not about-towning, he freelances as a communications & marketing manager for your favourite businesses.

Listen here or on iTunes. This week, Trevor and Jared join forces to bring you a show chock-full of goodness.

The Paper Kindle Club’s Best Laid Plans

After a foray into the ever-serious world of non-fiction with Eric Enno Tamm’s The Horse the Leaps Through Clouds, the Paper Kindle Club is easing back into autumn with something a little more humourous. Our next meeting is set for the 28th of October, a plan which we hope shan’t gang agley! The Paper Kindle […]

Zoo Legacy Set to Release New EP

It has been a one heck of a busy year for Ottawa’s Zoo Legacy. In the spring, the alternative/hip-hop band was featured in Canadian Music Week, going on to play NXNE and Junofest. They released a video for their song L.K.U.T. in June, and in July they hit Bluesfest, opening for Snoop Dogg and Lauren […]

Local Animator Competes at the OIAF

This year, the Ottawa International Animation Festival received a record-setting 2,377 entries. Animations were received from all across the globe, and only a select few would make the cut. When the dust settled, only 101 finalists remained. And one of them was Ottawa’s own David Borish, a recent graduate of the Glebe Collegiate Institute. This […]

Weekend Roundup: What to do in Ottawa

So enamoured are we are with all things beer in Ottawa that it seems not a Weekend Roundup goes by without at least some mention of the bubbly beverage. This week is no different. National Capital Craft Beer Week is in full swing this week, with events too numerous to mention. And while the Week […]

Tall Trees: up-and-coming young musicians

Tall Trees recently released their first EP, launched their new website, and have been generating some  positive buzz. Despite their musical achievements, the band has yet to graduate from high school—all of the members are 17 years of age. Tall Trees have a killer sound, a great stage presence, and are as hard-working as any […]

Apt613 Live for August 8, 2012

This week’s show is jammed full of interviews and topical discussion! Listen to it here or on iTunes! Once again, Jared takes the reigns as the host of this week’s Apt613 Live.

Weekend roundup: What to do in Ottawa

Ottawa is quickly becoming a beer-fanatic’s wonderland, with new breweries like Broadhead and Ashton Brew Pub bubbling up everywhere to compliment Ottawa’s many beer festivals. The latest addition to this city’s craft beer craze is the National Capital Craft Beer Week, which kicks off this Friday at D’Arcy McGee’s. The kickoff party runs from 6-9 and admission is free. […]

Creative Mornings: Julian Garner on “Unconventional Creativity”

Last month, Creative Mornings brought their blend of pre-lunch intellectualism and coffee to the Ottawa School of Art with a talk hosted by Chef Matthew Carmichael, the man behind Mello’s Pop Up Kitchen. This month, the topic of discussion has shifted from the edible to visual art, with discussion featuring Julian Garner. Long a notable […]

Apt613 Live for July 25th, 2012

Listen here, or on iTunes. Note: the Paper Kindle Club is this Sunday, not Saturday as is reported in this podcast.  This week on Apt613 Live, Jared hosts the entire show by himself! In addition to his unreasonably strange antics, we were able to snag two interviews this week. The first is with Gerry Paquette, Professor of […]

Paper Kindle Club: The Horse That Leaps through Clouds–An Update!

[youtube][/youtube] You know, I remember a time when books were books—when reading a book meant flipping pages, when the phrase “cracking open a book” made sense, and when sniffing the pages of a new book gave you that giddy, lightheaded feeling that only glue can provide. But this is the future. We live in a […]

Apartment613 Live: Two Shows for the Price of None!

Apt613 Live is dropping two new shows this week. On the first, we play some music from this year’s Bluesfest, Karen interviews Greg Searle from Harvest Noir, the guys behind 327 Wine Bar on Somerset. And we do it all without the guiding hands or smooth sultry voices of Ryan or Trevor. Despite our impediments, […]

Hip Hop Karaoke’d

I’m standing at the side of the stage, my palms sweaty (something about spaghetti). DJ So Nice is warming up the crowd with a few of his trademark beats. It’s a hot night, and Mugshots, the bar behind the Ottawa Jail Hostel, is packed to capacity. All heads are turned to the stage. The audience […]
