Some CBC Newfoundland and Labrador love for the new album, DON’T LET ME FALL TOO FAR. An interview with lovely Weekend AM host, Heather Barrett for “First Listen”. We play some of my tunes and speak about the new album, touring, the gear I use, what it’s like to pursue a music career that’s totally outside of the box and why I love the St. John’s music scene so darn much. https://www.cbc.ca/listen/live-radio/1-72-weekend-am/clip/15745011-rozalind-macphail-plays-the-flute-but-thats-just-her-starting-point
It’s been an exciting time with the highly-anticipated album release of SIGHT by Toronto’s Pick A Piper. Caribou musician, Brad Weber invited me to record flute for his Pick a Piper track, “Fragments”. I sent him my flute takes with a twist. I recorded it for effected alto flute and focused on the percussive sounds I could create from the instrument. Looks like this great track is getting lots of love all over the world, including by the fine folks at Exclaim and BBC Radio 6 Music‘s 6 Music Recommends w/ Tom Ravenscroft. Right on Pick A Piper aka Brad Weber. Digging that the Ali Ryerson Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments alto flute is getting sexy spins around the world.

“It reminds me of the type of ethereal sound explored by artists like Kate Bush…The idea of this record being intended for live looping performance by a solo artist continues to haunt my listening experience; I really want to see that show.” Click here to read the review

Thanks to Samuel McNeish of The Telegram for writing such a thoughtful article that highlights some cool life moments and projects. It brought me to tears to read this. This sure has been one crazy adventure! Warms my heart to see the Ali Ryerson Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments alto flute featured in this picture. None of this would be happening right now without my supportive family of fans and friends. Thank you so much!
