Number 1 on the CKUA album chart is Andy Shauf and the album is “Wilds”. This is his latest release and is a follow up to his successful record of 2020, “The Neon Skyline”.
The song I have chosen is titled “Jaywalker” and is available at all the regular streaming sites.
An interesting song, pay attention to the lyrics, no animals were injured. Andy is from Saskatchewan, which makes me happy as an ex-Saskatchewanian, also because he is Canadian and at number 1.

I always enjoy promoting Canadian talent, especially if they are from Calgary. Kate came to my attention in January of 2019 and I am just getting around to introducing you to her now. A bit of a brain break.
Kate Stevens is singer songwriter in the story teller vein. She has a very nice voice, reminiscent of many artists, notably a laid back version of Andra Day and quite jazzy. Definitely worth a listen.
If you enjoy the video, her music and her story in an expanded way are viewable here.
Shaun Bosch is an alt/folk singer songwriter from right here in Alberta. Currently in Edmonton, the cultural hot spot of the province, Shaun has recently released an album titled “Silence”. He recently dropped me a line asking me to take a listen to the first single off the album titled “Garden”. I have and I found a very interesting song filmed in the splendour of the Kananaskis area of Alberta’s Rockies. Emily Coulston is also featured in the song. It has a bit of a country feel to it, with some definite folk. I hear some Jason Mraz and some Bahamas. Nice song, and if you’re interested, you can catch more at these links.
