Canadian Queens...the Not-So-Exhaustive list...Part 1

Hey girls…you wanted it…and now you’re getting it!

LEGENDS

Celine Dion

Arguably Canada’s biggest and brightest star. You think of the ethereal goddess of Canada…you think of Celine Dion. A French-Canadian many people around my age grew up with her on the radio. Here’s one of my favourites…

Shania Twain

How do you become the best selling solo country female artist of all time? Play your cards right and become the most iconic crossover artist to ever walk the earth (Snakelor wishes). Born from complete poverty and suffering immense hardships by losing both her parents…a star emerged when she moved to Nashville and pursued her dreams…the rest is history. With 3 Certified Diamond albums…Check out her newly released song “Life’s About To Get Good” and start preparing for her new album NOW on September 29.

Joni Mitchell

Another absolute legend who has inspired countless singers today. Get into this masterpiece from her. 

God Tier

Alanis Morissette

This queen literally invented being angry. Jagged Little Pill will always be one of my favourite albums of all time. Albums later and she still has a big fan base while also being a mother, columnist, self-help guru, and spiritual guidance counselor of sorts for many people. Here’s an excellent song about life.

Sarah McLachlan

Before she was being spoofed on SNL for “saving the dogs” this woman had an iconic career in the 90s/2000s. I sometimes think she is my mother because my mother would listen to her every night when I was a young child. Here’s one of her best. 

More to come later…
