Songwriting & the Business of Being an Independent Artist with Craig Cardiff & Shawnee Kish
Canadian Musician Podcast
First up on the podcast this week, Mike chats with highly-buzzed about Mohawk, Two-Spirited singer-songwriter Shawnee Kish (2:20). Shawnee has just released her debut, self-titled EP and in this conversation, she discusses songwriting, navigating the music business as a new artist, her decision to remain independent rather than sign to a label, and a lot more. Then, high-acclaimed veteran singer-songwriter Craig Cardiff (28:10) joins Mike for a wide-ranging conversation about the music industry, labels, being challenged to write more honestly by an elderly concert-goer, and a bunch else. To say Craig Cardiff is active as an artist is truly an understatement. While his latest LP, ‘All This Time Running,’ is his first album of new material in six years, he has independently released an astounding total of 25 albums and EPs since his debut release in 1997. He has been nominated for a JUNO award for Roots and Traditional Album of the Year for his 2012 album, Floods And Fires, as well as a Canadian Folk Music Award for Contemporary Singer of the Year, in the same year.
Today I am speaking with Craig Cardiff, the celebrated Canadian folk artist who has released several albums over the course of his 25-year career in Canada. We talk about his latest song and album, how he is doing during COVID and much more.
