ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Randal Arsenault is a singer/songwriter from Newfoundland, now based in Edmonton teaching at the University of Alberta. For years Randal lived in Africa completing a Doctorate of Zoology on white rhino, wildebeest, and zebra. With his multicultural band, Randal Arsenault and Dr. Zoo mix upbeat folk music with "World Music influenced by Africana and Celtic rhythms and melodies". Since 2003, they have toured Canada, Japan, UK, US, and South Africa, and won nominations for 2009 World Recording of the Year (East Coast Music Awards), 2006 SOCAN Songwriter of the Year (Music Newfoundland), 2003 Rock Artist of the Year (Music NL), and a finalist position in the 2003 Canadian Songwriting Competition (CMW).

The 6 piece band includes Sudanese guitarist David Kabbashi, South African drummer Darryl Swart (fmr Tree 63), Ghanain/Albertan Niki Hylton, Alberta fiddler Megan Brown and Columbian bassist Felipe Rodrigez. See Promo Video.

David Hayman (Music Supervisor, VAPOR MUSIC Toronto) says:

"I saw Randal Arsenault and Dr. Zoo for the first time in Corner Brook Newfoundland (ECMA 2009) at a rock show at midnight in a sea of ready-to-party teens and young adults. I had heard from Randal, whom I had met earlier in a pitch session, that the band had been focusing on the youth and adult audiences but when Dr Zoo performed they had every single young person in the crowd on their side. The entire crowd, myself included, was totally sold on the idea of Dr Zoo because from the first note it was clear that the band was both authentic and extremely talented.....They had us clapping along, shouting lyrics we had just learned and roaring with cheers on almost every band member's solo's.

Africa meets Newfoundland.... never thought it could work but now I can't imagine Dr. Zoo being anything other than what they are, a fusion of cultures that represent the diversity of Canadian music and once again proves that art based on personal experience is always shines the brightest because it is authentic and from the heart. There was a lot of love for Dr Zoo that night. I hope to hear a lot more from Randal and the band in the years to come. They are truly something special."
