HOTSHOTS Episode #14- The Purpose of Protest Music with Peter Snow

Join Peter and I as we talk about the definition of a protest song, and why we demand activism from art.




This is HOTSHOTS, a podcast for musicians, artists, and professionals within the scene to discuss the ups and downs of working within the Canadian entertainment industry. Of course, I'm your host, Sarah Jessica.


Join Peter and I as we discuss our favourite protest songs, why musicians decide to get political, and the historical impacts of socially aware music on today's culture.


Peter Snow is a GTA-based musician, activist, and frontman of politically-charged socialist rock band The Soviet Influence. You can find Peter on Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and all streaming services under @thesovietinfluence, and on Twitter as @InfluenceSoviet.
