Hey everybody I’m Stephanie Beaumont...

Welcome to SEA AND BE SCENE ... And HEARD!

For seven years now I’ve been celebrating all the people places and things that make the 4 Atlantic Provinces so very special – here on website at and on SEA AND BE SCENE TV too..

I’m ever so grateful to the folks at COVE FM in beautiful Hubbards, Nova Scotia for giving me the chance to expand our EAST COAST Celebration to the wonderful world of radio.

Now with each broadcast I want to bring you closer to some of the amazing personalities that make up this corner of the world – they might be native to Nova Scotia or New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island or Newfoundland & Labrador – or they may be kindred spirits who simply adore living and working in Atlantic Canada . The only requirement here is that you raise your fun flag and wave it in salute of Canada’s Awesome East Coast.

Our chats will be just that – very conversational, not entirely sensible and with any luck totally enjoyable.

What follows are the downloadable podcasts along with show notes for your references

EP. 4 - MAKAYLA LYNN Airdate Aug. 16, 2017

What pleasure to welcome Nova Scotia born singer songwriter – Makayla Lynn to our studio. The award winning teenager is in the midst of another busy summer – touring with her new CD ON A DARE AND A PRAYER – a tour that brings her to the south shore this week – for a show with Lisa Brokop in LiverPool tomorrow night and then to White Point Lodge for solo shows on Friday and Saturday.  We first interviewed Miss Makayla back in 2013 she had just hit double digits, but She was poised, and well spoken, and - heeding the advice of her grandmother - she was "following her dreams" – she sure has been a joy to watch over the years – it’s wonderful to see her growing up and seeing those dreams come true – here’s my conversation with East Coast Country Music artist MAKAYLA LYNN

EPISODE 2 - MELISSA LLOYD Airdate Aug. 2, 2017

I'm joined by Nova Scotia born artist and designer Melissa Lloyd, who just last fall a launched a brand new company called DOODLE LOVELY – with the goal encouraging people to stop, and explore their own creative spirit – her products are designed to be inspiring and supportive and ideally take people on a progressive wander to a place of more calm, clarity, creativity, and confidence. Calm.... I hear calm is great. Booking Melissa for the show – with the goal of getting some pointers on... finding a break brought back to mind a telephone interview I did with Canadian Icon, Spring Hill Nova Scotia’s own Anne Murray two summers ago. I was writing a feature for Atlantic Business Magazine at the time and while Ms.Murray had stepped away from public life back around 2009 – a mutual friend had arranged for us to chat. We'll flash back to a smidge of our call first - then our in-studio chat with artist, author and entrepreneur Melissa Lloyd.
