Season 2 – Week #24: An Empty Room with Nick Faye – “Kansas”

With Nick Faye’s performance of his song “Kansas”, season 2 of the Empty Room series comes to a close.  Nick Faye & The Deputies are a band from the deepest depths of the Canadian Prairies (Regina, SK). They make music that sticks to your ribs, like a big plate of perogies and sour cream. They will be heading into the studio in November to record their third full length album.  For more information go to: www.nickfayedeputies.com.

With all 24 videos from this season now on YouTube, you can watch these 12 talented Saskatchewan artists perform anytime you want!  There is so much talent in our home province and we’re grateful to SaskMusic and CBC Radio for helping us share some of that talent with all of you through this series.

You’ve seen the videos of these 12 talented artists, but let’s not forget about the talented man behind the scenes – artistic director for the series Brent Nielsen!  We’d like to give a big thanks to Brent for all the hard work he has put into the series over the last two years.  As camera man, sound tech, editor, and creator of the series, Brent really does it all!

Thank you to everyone who has been following the series and supporting Saskatchewan music!
