The picture above is from a few years ago when Pick a Piper released their first untitled album. They came to CKMS the day of the release and celebrated the album.

Fast Forward to now and Pick A Piper is releasing their follow up album called “Distance” and it is Amazing! I was lucky enough to be at their Waterloo show where they blew the top off the starlight.

In the interview that can be heard here I thought I heard Brad wrong when he said that they play stand up drums….but it was amazing! We will get a video clip up soon on our Mano A Mano Youtube page but for now check out some choice tracks and stories about the albums here:
