Move Over Americana, Here Comes Canadiana

Everyone's heard of Americana, but "Canadiana" is fast gaining steam.

Canadiana, as defined by Six Shooter Records, a Toronto-based label with over 30 albums in its catalog, is roots music. But Canadiana is the wild north of roots music. North of the border, "roots" has as much to do with community, isolation, pride and a healthy dose of characteristic self-deprecation as it does with musical heritage and influence.

One of Six Shooter's recent releases is Luke Doucet's 'Blood's Too Rich,' which features the accomplished Canadian musician and his band The White Falcon (named after Luke's flashy Gretsch guitar of the same name).

"First Day (In The New Hometown)" is a song that embodies Canadiana: roots and rock, inspired by Canadian heritage. The song is about Luke's new home, a Dixie tenement in an "unfamiliar place." He sings, "Walk these dusty streets in search of Bluejays in a southern sky" and "I wonder if the north wind is in my clothes," a reminder of where he's from.
