Ways We Can Work Together




Ryan Newell from Burnt Oak Records

Ryan Newell is a musician and songwriter, among many other things, who lives in Guelph, Ontario. He has helped develop the indy record label Burnt Oak, which has been active in the region in their work to promote the work of various musicians who share a similar ethos.

Ryan and I talked about the politics within his music, primarily the influence the Six Nations land reclamation had on him, and we also talked about life in Guelph, activism, his attempts to infuse politics into the indy music culture, and a lot more.
