At a time when artists are finding themselves increasingly isolated, musicians Tom Wilson and iskwē | ᐃᐢᑫᐧᐤ come together to create something truly beautiful.
In March 2020 Tom Wilson (Blackie & the Rodeo Kings, Lee Harvey Osmond, Junkhouse) asked iskwē (and Ojibway jazz musician, Chuck Copenace) to be a guest performer with him on the Indspire Awards, duetting with him on his song, Blue Moon Drive. The two artists had never performed together but the chemistry and the magic was instantaneous. The artists came together again to record a full band, studio version of the song. It’s been a really inspiring project for everyone involved and we’re thrilled to share it with you and we hope you love it as much as we do. iskwē | ᐃᐢᑫᐧᐤ is, among many other things, an artist – a creator and communicator of music and of movement, of pictures, poetry and prose. And through it all, she’s a teller of stories that have impacted our past and will inform our future.
Tom Wilson is a Canadian music legend, famed storyteller and visual artist. In his memoir, Beautiful Scars, Wilson reveals the impact of discovering his Indigenous heritage after a chance encounter with a stranger caused him to question everything he had always known about his past. Musically, Wilson is best known for his work with Blackie & The Rodeo Kings and Lee Harvey Osmond, the latter receiving a 2020 Juno Award for the album ""Mohawk"".
