#97 11-04-2012 Horsin' Around with Atyeo

Robert Atyeo is in town, and will not just perform some of his music for us, but will share a few horse stories as well!  Tune in to hear John Prine meets Tom Waits ~ Blues; Singer-Songwriter; Roots; Folk; Contemporary music.

Robert Atyeo has been writing rhymes since he was 5 years old and performing on his ukulele! Career highlights include singing the National Anthem at a Blue Jays game with his friends the Bird Sisters, "Angels in The Backseat" being voted CBC #1 Song in '97 and The Friendly Giant asking the band of the same name to surrender the handle. Still writing and recording his own tunes, Atyeo also acts as producer for other artists.
"Atyeo's lyrics, powerful and insightful, are woven into melodies that have an eclectic mix of stylings including jazz, blues and folk... refeshingly different." -- Mariposa

Clever humour and a warm voice make Atyeo's wry observations and unique guitar picking musical style boisterously entertaining.

Memorable and moving, from the Montreal Jazz Festival to the Orilliia Folk scene to a house concert on Canada's west coast, there are laughter and tears, and many a satisfied crowd waiting for the return of Robert Atyeo...
