We chat with one of BC’s favourite blues artists Shawn Hall about his latest supergroup project and what drew him to moving to Vancouver Island.
Shawn Hall is best known as one half of the BC blues duo Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer. Together with Matthew Rogers, the pair carved out quite a significant career since 2006, winning countless awards and having their music featured on major television shows such as CSI, Blue Bloods and The Good Wife. Shawn has recently taken on a new musical project and formed a supergroup called Satellite and the Harpoonist, which features a variety of other artists from different musical acts including the Deep Dark Woods, The Boom Booms and King Missile. The supergroup recently released their debut EP Satellite Man, and have since taken the opportunity to hit the road with their music, including performing tomorrow night in Campbell River. Host Ben Waterworth chats to Shawn about the formation of the supergroup, how it's possible to put together something strong with many different musical ideas and why he now lives on the island and his take on the local music industry.
