Blair Packham

Blair Packham leapt into view of the music buying public as the lead singer of 80s

power pop band The Jitters. Blair has released three superb solo albums, including

2017’s Unpopular Pop, and has composed for TV and films, taught song-writing,

and co-hosted the long-running radio show “In the Studio”. He has worked with

the likes of the Juno-award-winning Ron Sexsmith, ex-Bare Naked Ladies singer

Steven Page, and The Odd’s Craig Northey.

On this episode, Blair tells us why country legend Dolly Parton, rapper Keysha

Freshh, and the iconic Steve Earle are The Essence of Cool!
