The Pulse – Tara Park & Jeremy Voltz

In the midst of the madness, Countermeasure Music is not only celebrating ten years, but also a new album. All-original but with a twist – one instrument as the “soloist” on each track. Hear from original group members Tara Park and Jeremy Voltz on their journey, their album, and their future. Tune in Tuesday at 6 pm Pacific/9 pm Eastern or Sunday at 10 am & pm Pacific. And don’t forget to take part in the Sing! The Toronto Vocal Arts Festival starting one week from tonight where you can catch their 10th anniversary celebration!

The Pulse with Aaron Jensen

Aaron Jensen joins us for The Pulse to talk about Countermeasure’s latest project – one with *gasp* instruments! Countermeasure joined forces with some of the most talented and award-winning instrumentalists to join their sound as a solo “voice” with songs nearly all composed by Jensen. We get to dig into album concept, inspiration, process, and more.

Tune in at 6 pm Pacific tonight or 10 am & pm Pacific on Sunday! The episode will be available as a podcast on Monday.
