NEWSTALK 1010: FRAN HEALY OF TRAVIS AND SINGER-SONGWRITER RICH AUCOIN!
On the October 18, 2020 episode of The Richard Crouse Show: Chart topping songs like “Why Does It Always Rain on Me?” and “Coming Around” and albums like album, “The Man Who,” which spent nine weeks at number one on the UK Albums Chart, made Scottish rock legends Travis one of the most interesting bands of the last few decades. They are back with an emotionally charged & deeply heartfelt ninth studio album simply called “10 Songs.” it’s a record about life’s challenges and how love can help weather those trials and tribulations. Joining me today is Travis lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Fran Healy on Skype. He’s been called one of the UK’s finest songwriting exports.
Then “Aladdin” star Mena Massaud stops by to chat up his new book “Evolving Vegan.”
Finally, Halifax-based Rich Aucoin’s fourth studio album, “United States,” is available now wherever you legally buy or download music on sites like bandcamp. He has been long-listed for the Polaris Music Prize twice and has built a reputation for putting on some of best live shows in Canada. So that’s where we began… by talking about the lack of live music in our lives right now.
