This week we have Montreal-born Grenadian-Canadian, Kaïa Kater singer-songwriter, guitar, piano and banjo player. We talk about how her name is rooted in a Bob Marley song, her debut EP Nine Pin which got traction while she was still in school, lessons from her first tour, Kaïa's fathers' migration story from Grenada.

We also get into what we have to offer our parents, the components that make up a good song, our shared love for Nina Simone's perspective on freedom, years that ask you to live more deeply, and midsommar flower dresses.

Look out for Kaïa's upcoming single, Parallels out October 2021 at Kaïa Kater
