Newsload Special Correspondent Carrie Anne Stephenson interviews Danno and Sylvie from My Son The Hurricane! Carrie gets the scoop on Danno's sense of love, success and tabletop album enders and Sylvie's take on fashion, dodging cars, dreams of RuPaul and her drive to make sure the show goes on!
As we entered The London Music Hall on Friday I discovered, as a local kid who had lived outside London my whole life, just how awesome that place is! Call me a country bumpkin (kind'a proud of that if I'm honest) but although I had been in and around it many times I had never entered, until Friday to film Carrie Anne interview this growing Canadian Legend --- My Son The Hurricane!!!
As the band set up for their standing room only show Danno and Sylvie were kind enough to give us a few minutes of their time and we leveraged the fuck out of it! Both have interesting journey's, solidly planted feet and a great sense for what's important.
