Artist: Scott McGrenere, Album: Trans Can, Song: Radio Love

"Well she's the queen of my every night.  She tucks me in so sweet and Lord so tight.  But she's just a sound carried on a wave and my soul is free for her to save."  Scott McGrenere is a singer songwriter from Toronto, Ontario.  He began his career in the mid nineties releasing his indie debut called, Greatest Hits.  He followed that up with a second release in 1996, called, Armoured which continued in the vein of alternative country.  His final release was in 1997, entitled, Trans Can.  The album was inspired by his trip across Canada along the Trans Canada Highway and of course, the places he visited in between.  The album was recorded in Vancouver and mixed in Toronto and has some wonderful tracks on it like this one called Radio Love.  Unfortunately, there isn't much on Scott.  He has a MySpace page but it doesn't appear to be updated with any new shows or events.  His albums are also very hard to find and likely had limited pressings.  I couldn't find any copies of Trans Can available at the time of this blog.  However, he does have some great tracks on his MySpace page that you can listen to.  You can follow him at http://www.myspace.com/scottmcgrenere.  You can also hear the song, Radio Love, on You Tube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6P2Vk_-37cY).  Thanks for reading and enjoy!

  3. I would also love to find out where I can get his albums these days! His CDs have changed hands in our family for years and as a result of the Great MP3 Migration we've lost them. Scott - hope you're well! I play MNSH on guitar often although I struggle to remember all the beautiful verses. Please post your music from your Wakami days, and more! -Michael Bruneau
