Favourite Canadian songs of 2015

photo-1442606440995-d0be22c5f90f-1

A lot happened this year. I booked my first show. I started a new job. I made 33 episodes of Indie-licious. I wrote 24 pieces for Weird Canada.

No one really asked for this list, but then I got carried away and now here we are. Songs are roughly sorted into clusters that sound nice together. Support your local community!
