Top Canadian songwriters come together with host Blair Packham to perform their music and tell us about the inspiration, the songwriting process, and the stories behind the songs in the popular SongBird North series. The artists for the December 17 evening include an incredible line-up: Jane Siberry, David Quinton Steinberg, and Lily Frost. Siberry is best known for such hits as “Mimi on the Beach,” “I Muse Aloud,” “One More Colour,” and “Calling All Angels.” She was awarded the 2005 Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton Award in music by the Canada Council for the Arts. Multi-instrumentalist Quinton began his public musical career as a drummer in the Who and Jam tribute band the Mods in 1977, before joining the Jitters and subsequently Strange Advance. Frost has explored topics ranging from introspection and our connection to nature, spirituality, and psychology, all draped in poetic metaphor in genres including indie folk, pop, swing, and western. Her songs were featured in shows such as Gray’s Anatomy and Workin’ Moms, as well as the Disney movie Crazy/Beautiful. In 2009, she earned a Gemini Award nomination as co-writer of the theme for CBC’s Being Erica.

Presented in partnership with the Songwriters Association of Canada (S.A.C.)
