As is the case with our art director Liza Matthews, we like our hires in that department to be real artists. Whatever their medium. That includes the medium of music.
So we’ve just got to crow about the just-released “New Music” issue of the great local weekly here, The Coast, which features not one but two bands that include Shambhala Sun art-department figures. First there’s Psychic Fair, with our new Associate Art Director, Andrew Glencross — who’s also played with Buck 65 and others — on bass. Then, there’s The Reference Desk, which includes Andrew on guitar, as well as Megumi Yoshida, who previously held Andrew’s position and now serves as Associate Art Director for Mindful. And Meg’s even in another band, Halifax stalwarts, Bad Vibrations.
