THIS WEEK ON TAKE TWO…
Chris Murphy of Sloan talks about bubbles versus pyro and his ongoing “feud” with Nickelback.
For more than 20 years, members of Sloan have been having huge arguments over whether they are a pop-rock band or a rock-pop band. Despite that hot button issue, the band has kept its 4 original members for all these years. Sloan credit their longevity to splitting the money equally and making the band a creative environment for all. Each member sings and writes songs so Jay Ferguson, Chris Murphy, Patrick Pentland and Andrew Scott attempt to equally share the “real estate” on the albums and on the set lists. The addition of Gregory MacDonald on keyboards (and whatever harmony is the most difficult) has upgraded Sloan’s musicality from amazing to ridiculous.

Exhibiting versatility, adaptability and creativity, Ben Knechtel is paving his way as one of the top Canadian music video directors. Knechtel has broad experience with some of the world’s biggest acts (Nickelback, Nelly Furtado, Hedley), and years of experience as a New Media Producer for 604 Records (Marianas Trench, Daniel Wesley).
Knechtel directed Carly Rae Jepsen’s explosive chart topping hit “Call Me Maybe”- the fourth music video he has directed for Jepsen. The 3 time MMVA winning music video for “Call Me Maybe” is a prime example of Knechtel’s comedic style, taking an addictive song, and creating a viral sensation. Currently sitting at over 385 million views worldwide on YouTube, Knechtel’s direction for “Call Me Maybe” has inspired thousands of viral meme’s across the globe.
