  • This photo showed up in my archives from 5 years ago exactly. Homesick as I won’t make it home to NL this summer (first time since I moved up), but looking forward to Power sibling hang together again soon. Like Christmas? Maybe? #cmonvaccine

  • This piece produced by @bseife for @cbcq has been sticking with me for weeks. Take 3 minutes and listen to Titus' words here that accompanied his piece of a Black mother holding her child, with the image of her child cut from the painting (also in the IG video). Time Magazine published as the cover, but only after Titus insisted these words accompany it.

  • Katy Perry is on the show today and she really opened up about the darkness behind some of her biggest jams. Plus I told her where Newfoundland is! She said she wants to come because it’s so cold there! Today on @cbcq. Don’t miss this one.

  • Got to talk with John Legend about his new record, celebrities role in protests, Chappelle’s special, talking to his kids about anti-Black racism, his recommended reading, and life during the pandemic. What was maybe the coolest was talking to him on Zoom where you normally see your Mom, or your buddy, but there’s an EGOT winner. No shade to Mom though, you’re an EGOT winner in my heart. Today on @cbcq #johnlegend #cbcradio #cbcq

  • This podcast is out today. It’s made by some friends and colleagues at CBC, including Q producer extraordinaire @tyharper416 who hosts and gives his incredible knowledge, perspective, empathy, candour, and talent to it. Yeah it looks like it’s a show about Drake, but it’s really about hip-hop, in particular (esp ep 1) the environment created by Canadian hip-hop that allowed someone like Drake to rise the way he did. It’s also worth saying (as the podcast does) that Canadian media - particularly the CBC - doesn’t have a great history of celebrating, analyzing or including Canadian hip-hop and Black voices in Canada as part of their programming and production, which Ty and I spoke about on @cbcq this morning. I won’t say too much more because I want you to hear it and take it in. Congrats to the team that made it. Link in bio.

  • Last episode of Season 1 of @toyheartpodcast. Thanks for all the kind comments and if you’re a Bluegrass fan - all the eps are still up to listen to. Final episode of S1 is with the legendary Jerry Douglas. We talked last November at IBMA in Raleigh, NC...and it was everything I hoped for. Candid, emotional, honest, and kind. Hope you can check it out if you’re into this kind of thing and shout out @amyrjacobs/@thebluegrasssituation for their kind partnership on this (and the great work they’re doing telling the untold stories of this music), and the biggest thanks to @stephiecoleman for her partnership in making this thing. Also coupla cool shirts here. Link in bio

  • Last episode of our TV show airs on CBC tonight! Am grateful to everyone who worked on it, appeared in it, and watched it. Ending the show tonight with this song from one of my favourites, which I am also grateful for. Thank you for the support, the love, and the questions about how to spell What’re You At (I still love U@).

  • Read an early draft of this a few days ago and was truly blown away. Obviously this is the music that means the most to me and I’ve spent a lot of time learning about its true history over the past few years. Thank you to @elamin for writing this and getting the truth out there and CONGRATS ON GETTING IN ROLLING STONE!! HOLY SHIT!!! Read this first - and then if anyone’s looking for some books/articles on the often-erased black history of country music, and the intersection of gender/race/class in the music drop me a DM and I’d be glad to pass some on. Maybe I’ll put it in the stories if enough people ask. Oh and RS LINK IN BIO! 
EDIT: List of books in my stories now!

  • Moved out of the living room and into a set at CBC for the TV show going forward. Still by myself with the crew operating remotely, everything sanitized and sterilized. Nice to have a bit more normal - miss the cat banging on his food bowl between takes though.
