Way back when I started this blog, the very first post in the Music section was about Scandinavian bands/artists. I was inspired by the cold weather in early 2013 to listen to music from Scandinavia as a theme for the winter months.
Two years on and I needed another theme for this winter’s music homework. So despite no (or very little) snow, I went with another northern country and chose Canada.
Now I’m sure that the summer weather in Canada is very nice, but without falling prey to stereotypes, the theme fits. Plus there are loads of artists from that country to fill my playlist.
Here they are:
- Alanis Morissette
- Bachman Turner Overdrive
- Black Mountain
- Bryan Adams
- Cancer Bats
- Death From Above 1979
- Godspeed You! Black Emperor
- The Guess Who
- Neil Young
- Shania Twain
There you go: a fairly eclectic mix of everything from country to thrash metal.
My thanks to Matt Barnes, who introduced me to quite a few artists on this list (but not Shania or Alanis…).
Did I forget anyone? Leave further Canadian music suggestions in a comment below.
