The Warped 45s hit warp speed


The Warped 45s’ new CD (also available on vinyl, naturally) Matador Sunset is flying up various Canadian music charts at warp speed this summer.

While the ’45s are relatively new to the national roots scene, cousins Dave McEathron and Ryan Wayne McEathron have been playing country and roots music since they were kids, beginning around campfires and the kitchen table at Ryan’s childhood home in rural eastern Ontario.

In episode 32 of The Woodshed Sessions, Ryan and Dave talk with host David Newland about their early and current music influences (from Ryan’s dad to Gordon Lightfoot to Elliot Brood), the origin of the band’s name, and vinyl records.

The Warped 45s — including keyboard player Kevin Hewitt, drummer Hamal Finn Roye, and bassist Alex Needleman — also perform three songs from Matador Sunset.
