Here’s a fun interview I did in Vancouver when I set out on my recent cross Canada tour. While it’s a lengthy listen, it was truly one of my favourite interviews I’ve done.
But first, the backstory:
I heard about Rob from an old friend of mine, a great musician named Shuyler Jansen (buy his records…you’ll LOVE them…trust me). When I planned to start my recent cross Canada tour in Vancouver, Shuyler suggested I stop by and record a session for Rob’s podcast, ‘Satan’s Cabaret‘.
I had never met Rob before and the Cabaret was new to me, so I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect.
With my old guitar in hand, a Vancouver friend dropped me off at the apartment address I was provided and up the stairs I went.
The apartment studio was a super, cool, inviting and creative space. Rob is a talented and prolific musician in the Vancouver scene and I was struck by seriously warm vibe that greeted me right away.
A few mics were set up and there were two cold ones on the coffee table near the mic stands, ready to be cracked… Lagunitas amazing IPA to be exact. A touch that a craft beer IPA lover like me appreciates!

Though we were both suffering from oncoming colds, Rob and I jumped right into our chat and I even managed to coax my voice into a couple of live songs. My crackly version of ‘Patio To Stereo‘ made the final interview cut and our chat that followed ended up spanning my entire music career.
The result? This is probably the most interesting interview I have ever done. Rob is a terrific interviewer and conversationalist and it was a pleasure to experience Satan’s Cabaret!
So if you’re at all interested in the Epic Musical History Of Page, my influences, my song-writing process, guitars or the background on The Stand GT, Camp Radio, etc, I think you’ll find this to be a fun listen.
Also, be sure to stop by Satan’s Cabaret to find so many other great interviews Mr. Malowany has done.
