In 2017, the sesquicentennial of Canadian confederation(1867-2017), Carleton University is celebrating both its 75th anniversary (1942-2017) and the 50th anniversary of the establishment of its music program (1967-2017). The Carleton Collective marks the occasion with an offering of songs crafted by eighteen rising stars on the Canadian singer-songwriter scene, talent that has been nurtured within Carleton's innovative Singer-songwriter Studies stream. The artists featured on this CD are truly a "collective" in the very best sense, supporting, encouraging and inspiring one another through their work, under the mentorship of Carleton's award-winning Singer-songwriter Studies teaching faculty, including Kellylee Evans, Roxanne Goodman, Amanda Mabro, Lynn Miles, Frank McKinlay, Giselle Minns, Jill Zmud, Ellen MacIsaac and Ian Tamblyn. Composer, poet-lyricist, story-teller, historian, vocalist, instrumentalist, performer and recording artist, the singer-songwriter is perhaps the most "complete musician." During this triple anniversary year, we proudly offer this compilation as a tribute to Canadian youth, Canadian creativity, emerging Canadian talent, and the songwriting craft.
