In this week’s episode, we get a closer look at two debuting albums coming out of New Waterford, Cape Breton. Host Chris Batstone sits down to chat with singer-songwriter Rob Murphy (NS) and acoustic sister-duo Hearts of Kin (NS). Murphy discusses the highs and lows of releasing an album in a digital-streaming age, and the perks of living in the flourishing music scene of Cape Breton as a performing artist these days. While on the other end, the McPhee sisters (Hearts of Kin) discuss how their ‘Homegrown’ familial roots helped establish their music career, and their dear-to-heart involvement in community music programming through the Whitney Pier Music Foundation.
