Paul MacLeod was a super talented singer/songwriter from Kitchener, Ontario. He built his reputation locally and regionally as a captivating solo performer who mixed great original songs alongside a vast and diverse repertoire of covers.

He was first introduced to many of us nationally and internationally when he joined legendary, long-standing roots-rock band Skydiggers in the mid-90s. He had the difficult task of replacing found...

Suzie Ungerleider (suzieungerleider.com) is best known as Oh Susanna, a moniker that she chose to take on when she started performing her own songs in the mid-1990s. In the beginning, she was writing and performing songs that were often dark and sad, with murder ballads and difficult tales being a common theme.

Her songs and subject matter expanded over the course of 5 albums made with a few different record labels. When it came t...

Sean Burns (seanburns.ca) came into music naturally, he’s the son of a professional, hard-working musician. Between 2009 and 2014, Sean released four albums, each one more distinct and impressive than the last, and made a name for himself on the road.

Sometime after the fourth one, he fell in love and found his way to Winnipeg, where he quickly inserted himself into one of Winnipeg’s main hubs and training grounds for roots-based ...

I think that Edmonton-based singer/songwriter Joe Nolan is one of those true “old soul” songwriters. He’s been writing songs that are deeper and wiser than his years for over a decade. He first came to my attention when Six Shooter Records put out the album Tornado in 2014 and set him off on the road to promote it. His name was unknown to me, but the label was well known, and the list of people who helped make that record was impre...

Stephanie Lambring’s songs are largely about difficult topics, and the stories they contain are often dark and sad. Her official biography sums her debut album up really well: “Autonomy centers around what it is to have the ability to make your own decisions—to truly own the course your life takes. Lambring examines topics that sound familiar, like things you’ve thought about before, from childhood embarrassments that still pop up ...

Bryce Thomas just released his fourth full-length album under his own name, but music has been his passion almost his entire life. That album, Across the Neuro Seas, was written and recorded almost entirely alone during the pandemic. It’s an album that shows a lot of growth and insight and talent.

The album’s name and interesting cover art, showing two very different images of the artist, are in part a reference to the difficultie...

I got to know Christina Martin (www.christinamartin.net) through my radio show, Tell the Band to Go Home, because of her powerful and memorable songs. I was hooked immediately, and I just knew that I was going to have to do everything I could to bring her to Winnipeg to perform someday. Not long after, we made plans for her to come and her show was the second show ever at my house concert venue, The Sunset Saloon. She last performe...

Whether on his own or with his band The Ladies & Gentlemen of the Rodeo, or hosting and performing in Barney Bentall's Cariboo Express, Matt Masters is always busy, even though it’s been a decade since his last album, All Western Winners. He’s honed a really fun show built around a classic country-honky-tonk sound.

Offstage and behind the scenes, he’s had a heck of a difficult time over the years, dealing with loss, dramat...

It’s been 30 years since Lynn Miles (https://lynnmilesmusic.ca) released her debut full-length album, Chalk this one up to the Moon. Last year, in the midst of the pandemic, she released her 15th album, We’ll Look for Stars. In between, she had big record contracts, publishing deals, and toured all over the place. The stress and grind of it all almost killed her. Fortunately, she was able to channel a lot of her struggles into her ...

Ben de la Cour (www.bendelacour.com) has had an interesting life, to say the least.

His official bio says, “After playing New York City dives like CBGBs with his brother a decade before he could legally drink, he had already stuffed himself into a bottle of bourbon and pulled the cork in tight over his head by the time he was twenty one. There were arrests, homes in tough neighborhoods all over the world, countless false starts as...
