The Evolution Of The East Coast Music Industry... And Why It Will Survive

by Check Teed

A Personal Journey

It’s February 6, 2005, and my band, Ermine, is about to take the stage at the Seahorse Tavern, a mainstay Halifax pub for over 50 years. It’s been a tough year in the Halifax music scene: three major venues — including the legendary Marquee Club — have shut their doors in the last 12 months and musical acts are scrambling to find stages. Suddenly, getting a weekend gig is hard work and to ensure return bookings, you need to fill the room with cover-paying, booze-drinking patrons.

Genius Loci

by James Mullinger 

An exclusive interview with renowned architect Omar Gandhi.

Brampton-born, Halifax-based architect Omar Gandhi was described as “Canada’s next top architect” by The Globe and Mail in 2016. Not two years later it’s time to drop the “next.” His unique vision and far-reaching insight and creativity have led to some of the most blisteringly stunning developments in North America, both commercial and private.

Gandhi, the recipient of the 2014 Canada Council for the Arts Professional Prix de Rome, was one of Wallpaper* magazine’s 2014 top 20 young architects in the world. He was also named as one of the Architectural League of New York’s Emerging Voices of 2016 and one of Monocle magazine’s 20 most influential Canadians. He met with The Maritime Edit’s Editor-in-Chief James Mullinger to talk about his life and work.

Coming Home

by Tanner Stewart

Tanner Stewart on why he is bringing Canada’s biggest vertical aquaponics farm to St. Stephen, New Brunswick.

Growing up in Miramichi, New Brunswick, was probably one of the greatest childhood experiences a kid could ask for. I spent countless hours running around in the woods with my friends – following brooks, falling in brooks, having epic crabapple wars, hopping across dangerous ice chunks along the river in the spring, hacking down trees with an axe, swimming under bridges, protecting small animals from the aim of my cousin’s BB guns, and staring up at the clearest, brightest night skies on earth. On summer nights, the bright yellow flicker of fireflies filled the quiet fields surrounding my house. On winter nights, the shining white snow reflected moonbeams towards that sparkling sky. It was magical.

Atlantic Pod

by James Mullinger

It was a walk along the Halifax waterfront in the spring of 2019 that forever changed the lives of British-born Rhys Waters and Nova Scotian Jonathan Burns.

They shared an outlook, a passion for podcasting, and the notion that this was the right time and right place to launch Podstarter.

And that is how the company was born in June 2019. Podstarter uses podcasting content to break through the marketing clutter to connect with people. Now one of Canada’s leading podcast-production companies, they create shows for some of the biggest global companies as well as producing podcasts that are some of Canada’s most listened to internationally.

The inn boasts a restaurant that is widely regarded as one of the best in the world, thanks in no small part to Aerni’s unique and famous dishes using fresh premium Atlantic farmed salmon.

The Acadian Giant

Andrew Nickerson meets New Brunswick's Hollywood Star, Robert Maillet

Robert Maillet grew up in the small community of Sainte-Marie-de-Kent. The size of his hometown is the only thing small about him. Whether it be his sevenfoot frame and imposing physical stature or the large entertainment platforms he has been a part of for almost 25 years, he certainly does not fit the profile of the small-town Maritimes most of us think of. I was glad to have the opportunity to talk to him about having success in both professional wrestling and the acting career that followed.

Lesley Hampton's Wolfpack

by Jennifer Wood

How the Indigenous Designer is Leading the Shift towards Body Positivity and Inclusivity in the Canadian Fashion Industry 

At the age of 25, Newfoundland and Labrador– born Indigenous fashion designer Lesley Hampton has received more industry praise than most would earn in a lifetime. In four short years, her designs have been featured in major publications like Vogue and Glamour in the UK and Allure, to name but a few. Her collections have been cherished, worn and modelled by national and international public figures, artists and athletes, including Adrianne Haslet, Serena Ryder, Penny Oleksiak, Margaret Trudeau and Lainey Lui. A nomad by design, Hampton’s formative years were filled with experiences of relocating and adjusting to new places throughout the world — an offshoot of her father’s work in the mining industry. At an early age, she began to develop an appetite for and understanding of socio-cultural concepts, marking the genesis of what we appreciate in her clothing lines today.

Why Change Is Coming

by Chadwick Williams 

Thus far, 2020 has been nothing short of fascinating. From atrocious political scandal to the crippling viral pandemic, this year has been humbling and frightful. This environment coupled with increased awareness of racial injustice has led to a civil-rights maelstrom. The televised murder of George Floyd was a catalyst to the consciousness of the world. And so we all find ourselves in an awakening, a reckoning. Black folks have been in this place for much, much longer though — maybe forever. I remember feeling this way with the killings of Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner and Philando Castile too. I remember thinking of how I would not want to have to raise a Black son and teach him the lessons that my parents taught me about getting along in this world and interacting with folks who look different from me.

Tom Power is Lifting Up Our Spirits on Q
by James Mullinger

 

He’s the host of CBC Radio’s q. He is the lead singer of The Dardanelles. He has interviewed everyone from Harry Styles to Margaret Atwood, Dan Aykroyd to Emma Stone. George Clooney to Margaret Trudeau, Guillermo del Toro to Chuck D. And during the COVID-19 lockdown he was there for us all every day and launched a brand new TV chat show from his home titled What’re You At? With Tom Power.

If you are reading this magazine, chances are that part of your daily routine is tuning into CBC Radio to hear Tom Power on q. Hailing from St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, he started his career programming folk music on college radio while studying folklore at Memorial University. In 2008, after a stint as a news announcer for a local radio station, Tom joined CBC as the host of Deep Roots. At 21, he was the youngest national radio host since Peter Jennings. In 2011, he became the host of CBC Music Mornings, their daily-morning national music program. In 2016 he took over q on Radio One. And, in 2020, in response to the nationwide lockdown, launched a new television show on CBC, What’re You At? With Tom Power on Sundays at 8pm. So how did he become one of Canada’s greatest interviewers? Three-time show guest James Mullinger turns the tables on Tom Power and learns how he landed one of CBC’s most coveted and sought-after jobs, and continues to raise the bar on a daily basis — even during the COVID-19 lockdown, when his show was combined with The Current and he brought us daily updates that gave us the inspiration and strength to keep going.
