I’ve been listening to a lot of Canadian music lately. And no, I’m not listening to Céline Dion or Nickelcrap or any other clichéd garbage that they overplay on the radio. I’ve been getting into the more genuine and talented artists that we have up here in the Great White North.
Those who I adore range from older artists like Joni Mitchell, Bruce Cockburn and Gordon Lightfoot:
…to more well-known artists like Hawksley Workman (Who is my current obsession)
..and Sloan, The Tragically Hip, Matt Good, Sarah McLaughlan, Mylène Farmer, Sam Roberts, Sarah Harmer.
As well as groups whose music I’m just discovering like Karkwa (Nat posted about this guy on her blog. Thanks Nat!) , Patrick Bruel, Claude Dubois, USS, Bran Van 3000 and Danko Jones. (I particularly like this song and video of theirs)
Do you have any favorite Canadian bands?
