Seth Canan & the Carriers chat with @theizzyrock at Dayton Sideshow 14 at Yellow Cab Tavern about their new album, Strange Forces being released this weekend 6/14.
Childhood friends, Seth Canan & Isaac Schaefer, started out playing their local bars in Covington, Ohio at 15. Throughout High School, they continued to play and record music together. While Seth was on his first winter break from Ohio University, they met up with old friend, Zac Pack, for an impromptu jam. That jam turned into a show. That show turned into Seth Canan & The Carriers.
The band released their first and self-titled LP in 2016. They worked at Popside Recording with Micah Carli. Complete with 12 songs, the album revealed promising songwriting and musicianship accompanied by a wide scope of sounds rooted in rock music. The first track, “The Lost Things”, became a favorite, with a catchy reminiscence to the Gin Blossoms. They proved to be proficient on the harder end of the rock spectrum with “Shine”, a barn-burner which finishes out the LP in true AC/DC fashion and often closes out their live sets with that same mentality.
After releasing their self-titled, the band put a calculated focus on tightening and perfecting their live shows. They found themselves naturally attaching to and rising in the Dayton music scene. The band spent the next two years cutting their teeth in Dayton and the surrounding cities, sprinkling a Stephen King inspired hard-rock single, “Pennywise”, into their catalog on Halloween of 2017.
Seth Canan & The Carriers started working with Dayton-native, Patrick Himes, of Reel Love Recording, towards the end of 2018 in preparations for their full length sophomore LP, ‘Strange Forces’. They released the first single from the album, “What’s Happening to Me?” on March 20, 2019. ‘Strange Forces’ will be out 6/14.
See them play Blind Bobs with a New Old Fashioned and AVOYO.

The last time we spoke with Angelica Young was episode 293, when she was our guest talking to us about her experience being Miss Captivating 2016. Since that time, a lot has happened in Angelica’s life, as well as our host Libby Ballengee’s life. Both suffered from chronic pain and illness caused by reproductive condition endometriosis and adenomyosis, which for many women, is shameful to talk about. The silence and isolation only adds to the misery. To shine light on this subject, which affects 1 in 10 women, Angelica has become the Outreach Coordinator at DO YOU ENDO, an online resource for those women.
In this episode, these two survivors kick in the doors and get really real about women’s health. This episode is not just for women, but also for the men who may not understand the reality of their loved ones pain. Angelica and Libby discuss how they learned to be their own health advocates, how they deal with constant pain and embarrassment, and the emotional toll of painful intercourse and infertility. They also discuss their different paths on this journey: Angelica’s on-going fight and Libby’s choice to have a hysterectomy.
What is Endometriosis?
Endometriosis is when the tissue that makes up the uterine lining (the lining of the womb) is present on other organs inside your body. Endometriosis is usually found in the lower abdomen, or pelvis, but can appear anywhere in the body. Women with endometriosis often have lower abdominal pain, pain with periods, or pain with sexual intercourse, and may have difficulty getting pregnant. On the other hand, some women with endometriosis may not have any symptoms at all. When a woman with endometriosis has her period, she has bleeding not only from the cells and tissue inside the uterus, but can also have bleeding from the cells and tissue outside the uterus. When blood touches these other organs, especially inside the abdomen, it can cause inflammation and irritation, creating pain. There are several treatments available.
What is Adenomyosis?
This is the condition Libby talks about suffering from. Adenomyosis (ad-uh-no-my-O-sis) occurs when the tissue that normally lines the uterus (endometrial tissue) grows into the muscular wall of the uterus. The displaced tissue continues to act normally — thickening, breaking down and bleeding — during each menstrual cycle. An enlarged uterus and painful, heavy periods can result. The cause of adenomyosis remains unknown, but the disease usually resolves after menopause. For women who have severe discomfort from adenomyosis, hormonal treatments can help. Removal of the uterus (hysterectomy) cures adenomyosis.

Originally based out of Dayton, Ohio, Mack McKenzie now calls Cleveland his home and base of operations for his brand of country music. Writing from the real life experience of the working class, Alternative-Country and Roots Rock are the cornerstone of Mack’s music . Mack McKenzie and his band have made the region take notice of what new country music can be again, versus what is being heard on the radio.
A 101st Airborne Combat Veteran, Mack has seen the world, both good and bad and it shines through in his music. One full length album, A Million Miles and a follow on EP, Consciousness, have laid the foundation of Mack McKenzie’s catalogue, with a second full length album on its way. Sonically similar to acts such as Son Volt, Drive-by Truckers and Jason Isbell, Mack’s music has depth and meaning the everyday working class individual can relate to.

For many, being a teenager was never easy. The hormones, pimples, puberty, periods, self doubt – all are very tough to endure during any time in history. Currently, we are seeing skyrocketing rates of depression and suicide in teenagers. The statistics are downright alarming. What’s behind this trend? Is online bullying from social media solely to blame? Do parents shoulder some of this as well? It’s also a time when teenagers are grappling with their sexuality. Coming out to family members, especially those of an older generation, can be very challenging and can be a source of depression as well. There are certainly no easy answers.
In this “community conversation” episode, our host Libby Ballengee, chats with Randi Levinson, a Marriage and Family Therapist and Certified Clinical Sexologist, and Scott Ervin (aka The Kid Whisperer), a behavioral consultant to parents and educators, for some insight. This conversation is for parents and anyone who wants to be more supportive of the teens in their sphere of influence.
