Walk Off The Earth – You Don’t Know How It Feels (Tom Petty cover)

This is a cool video of “You Don’t Know How It Feels” by Ontario band Walk Off The Earth playing tribute to the late, great Tom Petty. These 5 multi-instrumentalists are known for their creative covers and it’s well worth the effort checking out their many videos on Youtube. For now, let’s enjoy a little […]

R.I.P. Gord Downie

Gord Downie, lead singer of The Tragically Hip, has passed away from his battle with Cancer and left behind a body of work that will live on as part of Canadiana for generations to come. Rest In Peace, Gord. You will be greatly missed. Long Time Running…

So Long, Leonard Cohen

Canada’s greatest poet and legendary songwriter, Leonard Cohen, passed away on November 7, 2016 at the age of 82. Always the well-dressed gentleman and all around cool guy even in his senior years, he was loved by many and still performing live shows in his 70’s to his dedicated fan base. Here is one of […]

Barenaked Ladies – Lovers In A Dangerous Time (Cover)

This video is a true slice of Canadiana with a Canadian band covering a song from a Canadian singer. The band, Barenaked Ladies, do an awesome job with this cover of Bruce Cockburn‘s “Lovers In A Dangerous Time”. Bruce’s original version is, of course, a classic, but the “Ladies” bring a sense of humour to […]

Bruce Cockburn – Wondering Where The Lions Are (Audio Only)

One of my favourite Bruce Cockburn tunes and a song I used to play often on air back in my university radio DJ days many years ago. Bruce has written many great songs, but this one stands out for me. Probably even more relevant today with the state the world is in then when it […]

Treble Charger – Red (Original)

I first heard this on a compilation CD of indie Canadian artists that also featured Hayden and then I seen them live in a concert with Sloan a year later. I prefer this rougher early version from their album “NC-17” over the more polished release on their later “Maybe It’s Me” 3rd album. It’s a […]

Gentlemen Husbands – Shelter Valley Video

I recently “discovered” this band as the opening act for Matt Good and found out they had also opened for The Tragically Hip earlier in the year and have received rave reviews from other well known Canadian bands as well. After listening to their set I immediately agreed with the general consensus that these guys […]

Wintersleep – Dead Letter & The Infinite Yes

Powerful song with very meaningful lyrics. This plays during a scene on the show Being Human (filmed in Montreal) while the vampire character Aiden is with a dying patient. It’s one of my favourite Wintersleep songs, and I’m a huge fan of the band. Got to see them playing a free show live in Halifax […]

Ben Caplan and The Casual Smokers – Stranger

Ben Caplan is a crazy man…at times singing like a vodka soaked Russian Tom Waits with songs influenced by folk, jazz and gypsy melodies intertwined in an engaging blend that will have you singing along by the time it’s over and banging on the table for more. The performance in this video is without his […]

Heather Russell Youtube Singer

Heather Russell is a 10 year old singing sensation from Toronto who has been compared to Mariah Carey, Joss Stone and other talented female singers. She was “discovered” on Youtube (just like Justin Bieber) and has recently gained the interest of American Idol heavyweight Simon Cowell. Looks like she has a very bright future ahead […]
