About Digging Roots:
Juno-winning First Nations power couple Shoshona Kish and Raven Kanatakta have built their sound on a unique musical marriage of unvarnished truth and unconditional love. Their five-piece band turns out tunes that don’t fit in boxes: indie-folk, global-soul, roots-rock, hip-hop and blues-infused, Digging Roots is overall politically-engaged and poetically-enamoured.
About Dione Taylor:
Jazz, blues and gospel collide in this artist’s deep love for music, influenced by her past as a pastor's daughter from Saskatchewan — Taylor was raised in a family completely connected to song. The soulful singer’s Juno-nominated debut album catapulted her career across the continents, seeing her perform for audiences that have included the President of the United States and HM Queen Elizabeth II.
