While we were hanging out at OMDC’s Ontario JUNO Award Nominee Reception in Toronto last week, we had the chance to catch up with Izzy and Jon of The Strumbellas for 5 quick questions.
Many thanks to Izzy and Jon for taking the time to answer our questions in a crowded and busy room, and congratulations to The Strumbellas on their 2017 Juno Award nominations for…
1) Group of the Year
2) Single of the Year (Spirits)
3) Juno Fan Choice
Q1: Which Canadian artist would you most like to work with, that you haven’t had a chance to yet in your career?
I&J: Drake & The Weeknd
I mean, how do you argue with these choices if you’re trying to record a hit? We’re in!
Q2: Which Canadian album would you choose to put on during a long road trip… on a loop.
I&J: High Noon by Arkells
Solid choice. Are we listening to this album right now? Maybe. Should you be? Maybe.
Q3: What was the first concert you went to?
Jon: EdgeFest ‘98
While these are very different answers… we’re super happy with both of them!!!
Q4: What is your favourite thing about Ottawa?
I&J: The combination/ratio of Poutine and Beavertails
Q5: What Canadian artist do you think people should be paying more attention to?
I&J: The Zolas
If you’re not in on The Zolas yet… check ’em out. You won’t be disappointed.
