Country music is undeniably huge in Indian Country. In our fifth episode we talk to three Indigenous country artists about why that is.
The delightful Crystal Shawanda, an Ojibwe artist from Wikwemikong now based in Nashville, who has shot to international stardom, shares her thoughts and her brand new single, Love Enough.
Up and coming artist Genevieve Fisher, an 18 year old Chippewa of the Thames First Nation, talks about travelling to Nashville – country music capital of the world – for the first time.
Métis artist Ron Loutit may be an unknown name to some, but he has been writing and performing old school country music for 30 years. Listen to his thoughts and lyrics and learn why the hard time tales of country music are not so far away from the experiences of Indigenous people after all.
The RPM podcast is produced & engineered by the amazing Paolo Pietropaolo.
