Five Minutes With: Toronto Musician Wolfgang Webb

Restless nights are a hell-storm of synaptic wildfires, an onslaught of flickering, free-associative psychic combats with every single mistake, every single heartache, every single regret, every single loss and every single emotional scar from your past, present and imagined future. And then, instead of the comfort and succour of the pillow the next night ••• repeat. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Wolfgang Webb makes his solo debut with this impossibly long-overdue album. The Insomniacs’ Lullaby, was borne of this state and, indeed, sounds not unlike what it feels like to be perpetually immersed in this state. Probably because it was made in the throes of this state, when every night is a long, dark night of the soul.

What is your favourite street in your city and why?

Sackville Street (it’s where I have my recording studio)

What is your favourite park in your city and why?

Trinity BellwoodsAs a fan of T Park, it’s more than just a park—it’s a sanctuary nestled right in the heart of the downtown core. The sheer magnitude of its beauty never fails to astound me. With over 400 trees spanning both old and young growth, it’s like stepping into a tranquil oasis amidst the bustling city. What I love most about T Park is its versatility. You can soak up the sun in a peaceful picnic area, there’s something for everyone. And let’s not forget about the dog off-leash area— furry friends absolutely love it.

Rivoli – a beautiful intimate venue – plus my old band played many Saturday nights there. Also love the Pad Thai

Sonic Boom and Long&McQuade
