5 Quick Questions with The Fretless!

While we were hanging out at OMDC’s Ontario JUNO Award Nominee Reception in Toronto we had the chance to snag Eric and Karrnnel of The Fretless for 5 quick questions.

Many thanks to the boys for taking the time to answer the questions in a crowded room, and congratulations to The Fretless on their 2017 Juno Award nomination for Instrumental Album of the Year for Bird’s Nest.

Q1: Which Canadian artist would you most like to work with, that you haven’t had a chance to yet in your career?

E&K: Joey Landreth

We are totally onboard with this answer. Having been fans of the work Joey did with The Bros. Landreth, and his new solo album (click here check out the review) we can’t agree more.

Q2: Which Canadian album would you choose to put on during a long road trip… on a loop.

E&K: Karnnel handled this one and came up with Our Lady Peace’s Naveed.

The OLP album came out in March of 1994 and still holds up as a quality Canadian rock and roll listen. We’re in.

Q3: What was the first concert you went to?

E: Summer festival that included the likes of Metallica, Deftones, and Linkin Park, among others.

K: Karnnel’s real first concert memory is not being allowed to go see New Kids on the Block with his older sisters.

While Eric’s memory sounds like a rocking good time, we’re bummed for Karnnel that he didn’t get to go sing along to NKOTB with the girls.

Q4: What is your favourite thing about Ottawa?

E&K: The National Arts Centre and skating on the Rideau Canal.

While the Rideau Canal won’t be in skating condition during the Juno festivities, we highly recommend checking out the NAC schedule any time of year.

Q5: What Canadian artist do you think people should be paying more attention to?

E&K: Joey Landreth

Again, we 100% agree. If you aren’t listening to Joey Landreth sing and play guitar – you’re missing out. Get on it. You won’t regret it!

Q5b: What is your prediction for the 2017 Toronto Blue Jays season?

E&K: The Blue Jays will pickup a Wild Card playoff spot after a tough AL East battle… and look for Jose Bautista to play with a chip on his shoulder and something to prove after his less than ideal offseason.
