This week on The Strombo Show, Maynard James Keenan, the enigmatic frontman of Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer, explores his renaissance life with George Stroumboulopoulos in a rare conversation, and JJ Shiplett slings his guitar for an acoustic session to celebrate his debut album.

Maynard recently released his memoir, A Perfect Union of Contrary Things, which aims to unravel all the chapters of his creative mind. He delves further into it with Strombo, discussing President Donald Trump, the world of business, Joni Mitchell, Tool and more in a wildly in-depth examination of his life and music.

JJ Shiplett was raised on Springsteen and has spent a dozen years in Canadian clubs before releasing his debut album, Something to Believe In, this past week. He shares the evolution with us, from being raised in Red Deer through local churches to scrapping an album recorded at the Tragically Hip's Bathouse to Johnny Reid championing his sound.

Also, we'll feature song premieres from Hamilton's sideburned showman B.A. Johnston, Los Angeles's boardwalk songwriter Clare Means and Halifax's harmony darlings Port Cities.
