So Dirty The Flamingos

Hey, y’all. I am Shay. This is thebuzzr podcast. On air indie, from my pad to yours over the airways.

Today in the show, Lionel Doe from Etobicoke, Canada band So Dirty The Flamingos. We discuss the band’s The Bloodroot Sessions album, spin a few tracks & talk music.

The Bloodroot Sessions: “This is a record that came to be in all its juxtapositions–the love and the hate, the creation and the destruction, like the beautiful flower that sits in blood, “The Bloodroot Sessions” has bloomed, set to release in fall 2021. Local minded all. The band seeks unique (barbershops, record stores) and classic venues (Horseshoe Tavern, Junction City Music Hall) for its live performances. Watch out for these ones.”

An incredible top-shelf Canadian band!

Thank you for tuning in tonight. Enjoy the show!

Cheers!

Shay

From the Band

Est. 2018 Artist Bio In July of 2018, Lionel Doe set out to record what was to be a simple, acoustic, singersongwriter EP. The project was to be gritty and beautiful, and thus called “So Dirty the Flamingos”. At the same time, Lionel’s bandmate, bassist Adam Drury embarked on transforming the basement of his family home into a fully functioning recording studio and rehearsal space. They then enlisted Devin Jannetta, a workhorse drummer, and Scott Dunn, a Hammond organist with a long history of musical collaborations all over Toronto. And finally, Ciara Logar was asked to join as the backing vocalist to add to what was to be a signature sound. So Dirty the Flamingos was born, and at the same time, Sodipop Studio was record and rehearsal space ready. As the songs went to tape, Doe was inspired by the largesse of the sound that was being captured. The arrangements changed and grew, other musicians were brought in, and in the end, the self-titled So Dirty the Flamingos debut EP was a full-fledged Americana sonic boon, complete with pedal steel guitar (Steve Crosgrey), cello, (Mark Wang), a children’s choir, and cowboy gang vocals. It was at this time it was decided to release on vinyl format, as the material lent itself to it. ‘So Dirty the Flamingos’ was released officially on June 14th, 2019 at The Big Guy’s Little Coffee Shop, where the band’s formative business meetings were held. From there, they continue to play live shows throughout Toronto, in iconic places such as Junction City Music Hall, and the Horseshoe Tavern to smaller coffee and record shops. This indie roots rock quintet is cranking out songs straight from the heart and they are continuing to flourish. Their debut single, “Daughters” made it to the top 100 in the 2019 CBC Spotlight competition and was quickly followed by their second EP release single, “Before the Misfits” which heated up local radio with its selection as a featured artist pick. Their second EP, Unamerican Girl was released at the height on the pandemic in May 2020. As is their nature, So Dirty the Flamingos pushed through the uncertainty with grit and determination and are currently working on a third EP. This is a record that came to be in all its juxtapositions – the love and the hate, the creation and the destruction, like the beautiful flower that sits in blood, “The Bloodroot Sessions” has bloomed, set to release in fall 2021. Local minded all, the band seeks out unique (barbershops, record stores) and classic venues (Horseshoe Tavern, Junction City Music Hall) for its live performances. Watch out for these ones.
