ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album is a first for Canada. A concept album recorded across Canada, it is sure to be an album that will find not only success, but longevity as its songs build a strand of music from coast to coast to coast. Rich with Folk/Roots songs influenced by traditions that have shaped the country, these original songs from award-winning singer-songwriter Bonnie Ste-Croix use historic reference to build captivating stories, inject geographic metaphors and breathe out the originality she has become so well known for.

Words from the Artist: "It all began with the decision to move back to the East Coast. After spending a significant part of my life in Vancouver, it wasn't a decision I came by easily but it was time to be closer to family and reconnect with my roots. That decision started it all. I could imagine the drive across the country and where we would stop along the way with such a sense of familiar comfort it spawned thought: “Its like all of Canada is my hometown.” From that, came a rushing desire to do something musically that would represent that concept. “Canadian Girl” had her first heartbeat. The vision was to create a concept album that invested as much in the process as the outcome; building a musical strand from Coast to Coast to Coast with local guest artists as part of the process, recording right there in their home Province or Territory. Traveling to each place would ensure I was connecting with the geography, culture and character; and the talents of artists living there would ensure the heart and soul of each area was woven into the fabric of the song. It was to become more than I ever dreamed...."

“…her voice will stop you cold in your tracks. It's one reason she's attracted such devoted local fans who faithfully attend her gigs...
Ste-Croix definitely isn't afraid to simultaneously show her intense and comic sides on stage. And the audience falls in love.” Vancouver Courier
