Check out this set of songs by “Canadian Indie Women” on the Sixeyes MP3 blog. The three featured artists are Mary Margaret O’Hara, Leslie Feist, and Jane Siberry.
What is it about Canadian singer-songwriters? There must be something in the air. Think about it: Joni Mitchell, Sarah McLachlan, Neko Case — OK, Case wasn’t born in Canada, but her career was. There’s a kind of purity, not to mention an appreciation for complex lyrics, that seems specifically Canadian. Whatever it is, it rocks.
