The Canadian Shield

The Canadian Shield is dedicated to the great Canadian artists and albums that helped shaped the Canadian identity in the grand scheme that we call our music. I believe that our country is not shaped by one particular sound but eclectic and diverse ideas that have creatively bonded people of all nations. This is the music that Canadians could stand up and be proud of as we stand on the bedrock of a country with a strong devotion for original and distinctive music.
