PRESENTED BY BEN SIR
It's been said that prostitution is the world's oldest profession. If that is in fact true, then we here at Balcony TV Edmonton would like to contend that music is a close runner-up. And this week's artist, Blair Drover just happens to be a pleasant blend of the two! Well, kind of. While not accepting much in the form of money may render him unsuccessful in the sex trade, Blair's spreading of his vocal and multi-instrumentalist talents amongst several notable Edmonton acts such as Audio/Rocketry, Desiderata, and this, his (as of now, untitled) solo-fronted project has certainly made him a sought after musician throughout the prairies. Demeaning analogies aside, Blair descends from Fort Macmurray, that oil-drenched haven/hellhole (depending on your perspective or truck size,) north of Edmonton that despite its waste-landish appearance has produced a disproportionate amount of talented and insightful musicians. Initially cracking into the Edmonton scene with progressive noise-monsters Desiderata, he has also clocked thousands of kilometers crossing Canada with local favorites and folk-heroes Audio/Rocketry. In those outfits downtime, Blair has been cramming his already busy schedule with the assembly of a backing band for this project. We're proud to offer his performance of 'home,' for your pleasure. Find Blair-centric music at desiderata.bandcamp.com, and audiorocketry.com.
