Meredith Shaw, Toronto born, is both a singer songwriter and a radio personality. The messenger and the message, cool. She has a weekend show on 97.3 in Toronto, in which she interviews talent etc. She has 1 album out, (2011’s Place Called Happy) which was produced by Big Sugar’s Gordie Johnson and 1 EP (also 2011, Trouble) which was produced by Joel Plaskett. This tune, “Call it a Night” showcases her personality and style and is done live as well. Great song.
Song Of The Day didn’t have to go far for this one. Tegan and Sara formed right here in Calgary back in 1995 and have had major success with their indie style music. This song, “I Was a Fool” is from their latest album “Heartthrob”, which was released earlier this year. I have chosen a live performance for you to enjoy. An absolutely terrific tune.
Singer, songwriter, fiddler, all the above! Sara Watkins has a lengthy career for someone so young. Her first band in 1989 was bluegrass group, Nickel Creek, in which she played the fiddle.

This song, “When It Pleases You”, was released in 2012 as a single and his from her second album, “Sun, Midnight Sun”.
