George Stroumboulopoulos, Canada’s top music interviewer and known in Canada as “Strombo,” has signed on with Apple Music to bring his "House of Strombo" concert series to the streaming service, via YouTube. The shows are filmed at his downtown Toronto home in front of a live audience, “crammed into his living room,” reports Billboard.
The 10-part series, co-produced by Anonymous Content and Son House Productions will feature "a combination of international legends with young and upcoming artists across a variety of music genres.” It will include "exclusive video features, band interviews and behind-the-scenes access only on Apple Music.”
The first episode features Canadian First Nations DJ group A Tribe Called Red but future guests will be revealed at a later date. Stroumboulopoulos recently had Dinosaur Jr. and Against Me! perform for his House of Strombo show, but no word if they will be part of the Apple Music series.
