[Interview] Shad talks “Flying Colours,” fighting fear and pride, and why it’s important to remember to remember
Photo credit: Danielle Da SilvaInterview by: Martin Bauman How do you follow an album that won a Juno? That was the pressing question facing Shad as he set to work on his latest album, Flying Colours. His response? Take the same approach as always, trying to write music worth sharing and explore ideas worth talking about - something he had plenty of time to do after completing his master's of Liberal Studies at Simon Fraser University. The result, in Shad's fourth full-length album, is a thoughtful offering that delves into the topics of success and failure, fear and pride, and the power of truth, all while displaying Shad's typical honesty and humour. As a result, it may just be the best album yet for the Vancouver-based "most-rewinded Rwandese." We caught up with Shad at his homecoming show in London to talk about Flying Colours, fighting fear and pride, why it's important to remember to remember, and much more.
