Life is coming full circle for Christopher Ward. In more ways than one.

Earlier this fall, the singer-songwriter, pioneering Canadian VJ, author and podcaster reissued his 1978 debut album Spark Of Desire, which includes the CanCon classics Once In A Longtime and Maybe Your Heart. It comes on the heels of his 2021 comeback album Same River Twice, a warm, mature and mellow offering that featured a smoky new take on his most-famous song Black Velvet, Alannah Myles‘ chart-topping, award-winning hit from the ’90s. On top of that, Ward’s book Is This Live? Inside The Wild Early Years Of MuchMusic The Nation’s Music Station has just been optioned for a potential TV sitcom. Despite all this activity, the personable Ward made some time to Zoom with me to talk about his storage space, hearing his music on the car radio during dates, who should play him on TV and much, much more. Enjoy. And while you’re at it, read his 20 Questions Interview.
