Old Friends & Free Stuff with Chris Cummings

It’s fair to say Chris Cummings NB and I go way back – so I was more than pleased when he agreed to meet for the interview.   We just recently re-connected thanks to Facebook and we’ve been working on getting together for this feature for quite some time.  But, after much delay, multiple re-locations and a smidge of car trouble – we finally met up in Saint John, New Brunswick where Cummings was born.  He took us to one of his favourite spots Second Spin and it wasn’t until I started reviewing the footage that I recognized how apropos the venue really was.  Certainly Cummings chose it because, in addition to having cool old movies, righteous vinyl and those good old posters it has one of his favourite things Comic Books – but it also felt like a second spin at friendship.  So I was happy… and Chris was just as sweet as he was all those years ago.

give me tonight chris cummingsHe’s still writing new songs and as he tells us – re-energizing some long forgotten old ones from his back catalogue.  That’s what you’ll find on Give Me Tonight - a celebration of great moments of the past and some sure fire future hits – sung by the same wonderful voice of Chris Cummings. 

Chris will be hitting the road sometime in the spring – in the meantime you can catch his latest single “Leavings Not an Option” on radio, and right now…
