Hosted by filmmaker and longtime radio programmer Ramin Yazdi, SING TALK PLAY – Calgary Sessions features emerging Calgary musicians in unexpected locations around the city. Celebrate the music in Calgary and get the inside scoop on up and coming artists.

The Artist: AM Static

Taking the country by storm with their electro-pop sounds, Chris Austman & Nils Mikkelsen create music as AM Static. A collaboration formed in 2011, their first full length album A Life Well Lived was nominated for the 2016 JUNO award for Electronic Album of the Year.

The Venue: Devonian Gardens

Step into an urban oasis in the middle of downtown Calgary with a walk through Devonian Gardens. Opened in 1977, this indoor public park is home to a garden of tropical plans, water fountains, and ponds teaming with fish, all under an umbrella of natural light. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city centre and visit this city park, located in the top floor of the CORE. Note that Devonian Gardens is temporarily closed for repair work and is expected to re-open in 2017.
