Canadian rock icon Lee Aaron recently released his new album, Radio On !. She spoke with BraveWords about the recording and a snippet of the chat is available below
Courageous words: To those ears Radio on! has moments reminiscent of your Bodyrock record (from 1989). Not everything, but there is an atmosphere. There is definitely more grain than polish on Radio On! …
Lee: “It’s kinda reminiscent of that album. I think it reflects how we hit a groove as a band. Sean Kelly (guitars) has been in the band for almost eight years now, Dave Reimer (bass) has I am with me for 17 years and my husband (John Cody / drums) has been playing in my band for 20 years. We were still looking for that replacement for John Albani (guitars) because he was the man, so we ran into a few guitarists. and when Sean and I connected through his book Metal On Ice in 2014, he ended up replacing my guitarist at a show, and in the first song it was obvious to everyone … “Dude, you have to join the group. You’re the guy … ‘(laughs) I think we’ve hit a real groove as a unit. “
