Arthur Kaptainis: John Rea talks about his music, and you can quote him on that
The Montreal Gazette - September20, 2015

“I’ll start with a philosophical observation and see if I can fit my world into that observation,” John Rea said from his home in Outremont.

“I wouldn’t be the first person to make the proposal that everything on earth, including genes, are quotations. It is in fact thanks to quotations, particularly the genetic ones, that we can exist as human beings.”
