Meanwhile, Back On The Farm...
With Grant Marshall (Drew's Dad)We're losing a generation. A generation of respect, integrity and honour. A generation who were not afraid of hard work and sacrifice. Drew's father IS that generation. Growing up on the farm taught him more about life than Google. So maybe we should take the time to listen – before that generation is gone.

This Week's Recording Artist: Angie NusseyCHECK THIS VIDEO OUT
If one could imagine an uncompromising union between Josh Groban, Sarah McLaughlin and The Barenaked Ladies, it would only begin to set the stage for this unique Canadian talent. Award winning recording artist, Angie Nussey is best known for her emotional, philosophical and at times autobiographical ballads. However, she also doesn’t miss an opportunity to poke fun at everyday situations, the human condition, not to mention herself. Her world-class performances never fail to take her audiences on an emotional journey from totally ridiculous to deeply intense. After five full-length albums, 12 years of touring, and over 15 industry awards for songwriting, vocals, and performance, including Best Song, Best Vocal performance and Female Performer of the year, Nussey is currently recording her new album, Wisdom and Foolishness. Nussey’s secondary passion lies in spirituality and self-discovery. Having battled with depression and acute sensitivities to the world around her, she speaks publicly about her past and enjoys sharing ideas about what our ideal future will look like from the humanistic side. In the spring of 2014, Nussey was featured as a speaker at TEDx Nickle Centre’s Think in 3D. Through words, music, and understandings influenced by leaders such as Eckhart Tolle, Wayne Dyer, Nelson Mandella, and Marianne Williamson, Nussey eloquently expressed her own points of view on being true to ourselves, and how we all must prepare for the discomfort of the future and the mourning of our past.
