Canadian Music Videos

One of the things that Canada has always excelled at is music. The rich and diverse cultures of Canada produces equally rich and diverse music.  This page will be updated regularily to post some of the new and exciting music to come out of Canada, as well as some of our much beloved classics.

The Good Lovelies are a delightful Toronto-based trio with sweet three-part harmonies and their own mix of folk, jazz, country and swing.
Le Vent Du Nord is a great example of traditional Quebecois music. In particular the distinctive Quebecois fiddle style, influenced strongly by the great Quebecois fiddler Louis “Pitou” Boudreault.  
Genticorum  is a traditional Québécois musical trio that fuses modern composition with classic folk elements. Their musical scores are original, largely based on Pascal’s repertoire of fiddle tunes, while their lyrics are often traditional
 
Jully Black is the uncontested Queen of Canadian R&B. She is also a celebrity reporter for CTV's daily entertainment magazine etalk.
Joel Plaskett is one of Canada's best indie songwriters
The Rankins performing my favorite Bruce Cockburn song "One Day I Walk" at the 1998 Governor General's Performing Arts Awards Gala in 1998. A beautiful performance that gives me (real Canadian) goosebumps.
Allison Crowe - Canuck indie singer-songwriter  pays tribute to one of her great inspirations, Joni Mitchell, in this live performance of River - a song from Mitchell's classic album, "Blue". This is one of few versions of River that do justice to the beautiful song.
The Wailin' Jennys are a Juno Award-winning Winnipeg folk trio consisting of soprano Ruth Moody, mezzo Nicky Mehta, and alto Heather Masse. I've seen them at a couple Folk Festivals where they have always been brilliant.
The New Pornographers (with Neko Case) - a Canadian/American indie rock supergroup formed in Vancouver.
Coeur de Pirate
Béatrice Martin is a ridiculously talented 19 year old from Quebec that performs beautiful piano-accompanied songs. She first attracted majorattention in when Francis Vachon, a photographer from Quebec City, used her song "Ensemble" as the soundtrack to a popular YouTube video depicting his baby son playing with toys, leading to coverage on Good Morning America and a favourable review from blogger Perez Hilton.
Deep Dark Woods
A fantastic alt-country band from Saskatoon. Reminiscent of the 70s country rock, such as the Band or Gram Parsons
Jill Barber
Multi-award winning singer-songwriter from Halifax (now Vancouver)A sweetly melodic voice.
Great Lake Swimmers
Melodic folk rock band, based in Toronto
Feist
Feist's Sesame Street version of her song 1,2,3,4 is absolutely delightful
