Petunia is a bizarre and mysterious character. I cannot determine his real name, but I do know that he is originally from rural Quebec and is now based in Vancouver, although he seems to have spent time in almost every corner of the country (both Toronto and Fredericton claim him as a former resident, just as examples). What I do know is that he’s an entertainer – I mean in the old-school sense of someone who sings anything, plays anything, does anything in the name of entertainment. He’s Buffalo Bill Cody, he’s P.T. Barnum, he’s Ed Sullivan and he’s a carnival sideshow barker. He wants to take you go on a wild ride with his album ‘Inside of You’, so step right on up, folks.
