Music Maker Crystal Shawanda
Wed. 9/19 11a: Four Years ago we were introduced to the rich country flare and strong vocals of Crystal Shawanda an Ojibwe from Canada’s Wikwemikong Reserve. She is back with her new album “Just Like You” off of New Sun Records. The sound on the 15-track album is a maturing extension of what we first heard. The lyrics are sung in deep vocal brush strokes that are reminiscent of Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette. This Juno nominated and Best New Country Artist winner at the 2009 Canadian Radio Awards makes you want to get up and dance while providing solid moments to take in songs that remind you how sweet love can be. Tune in for our September Music Maker as we visit with Crystal Shawanda.
