Calgary folk rocker Matt Swann (Hot Little Rocket, Extra Happy Ghost) has had a recurring presence on the CKUA charts since the release of his debut recording under the moniker Astral Swans. The album All My Favourite Singers Are Willie Nelson was chosen as the debut release on Dan Mangan’s newly minted label, Madic Records. The record has charmed more than a few announcers at CKUA. This week, while on national tour with Hayden and Dan Mangan + Blacksmith, Astral Swans joins us for an in-studio session including live renditions of songs from the album, and a gem of a cover originally performed by the album’s namesake.
