Episode 1 of Season 2 is live! In our Season 2 debut, host Chris Batstone takes a dive deeper beyond the artist’s name you keep hearing by chatting with featured guest Owen “O’Sound” Lee. Sharing his story, Owen discusses his experience establishing a successful career in the Maritimes, notable A-list collaborations (hint: they include Mariah Carey and Drake), and the downtime that has presented itself in recent months to pursue passion projects - while simultaneously caring for five children under the age of eight!
