About the show

Wander / Wonder will take you on a brief journey through the music that is close to my heart, the music that reminds me of my favourite spaces, places, and people. These are songs that bring me comfort, and discomfort, joy, and sadness. Over the course of this series, genres will appear and disappear along the way, like those close companions you meet in your lifetime.

Together, we will explore some of the music that I’ve encountered and speak to some of the incredible people that I’ve met along the way. Each time, we return to the same question: where do we go from here?
