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.

On a beautiful day last May while I was attending the East Coast Music Association (ECMA) Conference in Halifax, Sarah Denim and Nicole Cecile Holland of AT LAND FILMS shot a video of me performing an audience favourite, THE GAZE by Shona Thomson.
A dream of mine is coming true! I’ve been invited to perform at The Rooms as part of their Coffee and Culture series. It’s been a dream of mine to perform in this beautiful museum for many years. Join us on Nov 1st for some flute loops, silent film and inspiration. So excited! https://www.facebook.com/events/250270685643901
