Interview: SAM ROBERTS on rural shows, Lo-Fantasy as a dance record, and a new EP on the way.

Sam Roberts is a Canadian rock songsmith from Montreal, QC who has been playing in bands for more than twenty years. Earlier this summer, his breakout EP The Inhuman Condition -- one of the biggest successes in Canadian independent music history -- celebrated its twelfth anniversary, and earlier this year, the Sam Roberts Band released their fifth full-length studio record, Lo-Fantasy. Sam Roberts Band played the Tumbler Ridge Golf & Country Club on Sunday, August 10th, and after the show, Peace FM's own Justin Morissette was fortunate to chat with Sam about seeing the country through music, the stigma that Lo-Fantasy is a "dance record", and finding a home for lost songs.
