ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
We asked Canadians from coast-to-coast to submit their favourite Canadian sounds. Thousands answered the call (and they submitted more than the iconic loon); sounds of snow pants swishing, bacon sizzling, lobster claws cracking and maple syrup dripping. Then we gifted the sounds and sentiments to artists and songwriters so they could create great music rich in meaning.

This is your album, Canada. Filled with your sonic memories, experiences and sentiments. A collection of songs as diverse and beautiful as the country we all love.

Blitz//Berlin:
JUNO nominee Blitz//Berlin is composed of three self-described "punk kids" from Toronto. For the CanadaSound Project, they collaborated with Bülow to cover a true Canadian folk song. Listen for the cry of seagulls, rain hitting the roof of a porch, boats rocking at a dock, frogs croaking and wolves howling.

Sofia Blu:
Only 13-years old, sings about a small town with a big voice. She was inspired by sounds of lapping water and an axe splitting wood, which reminded her about her home, family, and friends in Collingwood, Ontario and the special place it holds in her heart.

Shobha:
Award-winning singer, songwriter and recording artist based in Canada. Her song for the CanadaSound Project truly honours Canada from coast-to-coast and the lyrics, written in collaboration with husband Rob Wells, explore the beauty she has personally experienced across the country. Surely, if Canada were a movie, this would definitely be the theme song.

DRU:
R&B singer, songwriter and JUNO Award winner. When listening to CanadaSound submissions, he was inspired by the sound of rain (fitting, as he was born in April), which inspired feelings of melancholy and the memories of a girl.

Ammoye:
Jamaican-Canadian reggae singer and 3X JUNO Award nominee. Like many Canadians, Ammoye loves being in cottage country. For the CanadaSound Project, she wrote "The Light", a song about how the outdoors makes her feel peaceful, free and centred. Listen for the sounds of lake water cascading over rocks, Canadian geese and ducks.

Erik West-Millette:
Montreal composer and producer. His CanadaSound contribution is dedicated to the railroad workers who, in 1895, built the rockiest, toughest railway on Earth - the Canadian Pacific Railway. Listen for freight train horns, metal spike hammers, and even the howls of a wolf pack.

Karl Wolf:
Canadian R&B singer and JUNO Award nominee who is accustomed to being at the top of the charts. For CanadaSound, he was inspired by the sound of a raven, and sings a song about overcoming limitations that are set for us by society. His lyrics ask us to search deep inside for the superhero within each of us in order to achieve our dreams- something that as Canadians, we are blessed with the freedom to pursue.

Florence K:
Renowned French-language artist and JUNO nominee Florence K wrote "Mira Mira" for the CanadaSound Project. She was inspired by the passage of time and the sounds of letters changing on the flight boards at Montreal's Mirabel airport (now inactive). Also listen for more sounds like airplane taking off, the chirp of a marmot and a Native American frame drum.

Melle Rose:
Canadian pop singer, the 2013 Miss Canada, and fashion expert on The Shopping Channel. For the CanadaSound Project, she was inspired by the chimes on the TTC streetcar and sings a song about a woman living in the city of Toronto who, despite the status quo, chooses her own path, relationships and future.

David Francey:
Carpenter-turned-songwriter and is a 3X JUNO award winner known as "one of Canada's most revered folk poets and singers." For the CanadaSound Project he wrote a love song for his wife that honours a special place along the St. Lawrence they like to visit. Listen for Laker boats and horn salutes.
