We are stoked to be back at our regularly scheduled program this week and to have Apollo Suns defacto band leader and guitarist Ed Durocher as our guest on No Simple Road!
Born from the fusing of nine Winnipeg, Canada based musicians, Apollo Suns have created a refreshing and innovative sound and live performance combining instrumental, jazz, rock and psychedelic music. They were awarded “Instrumental Artist of the Year” at the 2018 and 2020 Western Canadian Music Awards.
Apollo Suns began in 2016 following the deconstruction of Ed Durocher (Guitar) and Dave Guenette’s (bass) previous band Electric Soul. Over the years the band has seen a large rotation of some very talented and have now solidified the core group of Glenn Radley (Drums), Erika Einarson (Percussion), Niall Cade (Tenor Sax), Bryn Herperger (Bass), Garrett Malenko (Trumpet), Benjamin James Hill (Trombone), Aaron Bartel (Bari Sax) and Anatol Rennie (Keyboards/Synths).
We talk to Ed about emerging from the cocoon of quarantine into heading back out on the road for a huge North American tour, what he’s missed most about the road, the unique challenges of having a nine member band, how it feels to be in that space before something really takes flight, his ideas to create a total sensory experience with their shows, how the energy of crowds has morphed, and a ton more!
