Canadian Covers: Hallelujah
This year, we launched a series of music videos that we call our Canadian Covers. At Province of Canada, we like to keep it made in Canada, so we took to the studio and recorded talented Canadians covering other talented Canadians. For us, this meant highlighting our good friends as they performed acoustic covers of Canadian icons Drake, The Tragically Hip, Justin Bieber, Joni Mitchell, Sean Mendes, and Leonard Cohen in our studio. What started as a cozy jam session with friends quickly turned into a handful of all-Canadian acoustic covers.
We've introduced the citizens to acoustic covers of Drake's One Dance (Katie Fuentes), The Hip's Wheat Kings (Nathaniel Snow), and Bieber's Love Yourself (Sean Dutton and Ryan Tavares). What you probably didn't know while listening to each of our covers is that all four feature artists actually know each other outside of our studio. They've performed together here and there between camp and community events, so it was a no brainer to bring them together for this iconic Canadian chorus.
These artists aren't new and after individually recording their own covers, we brought the team of artists together to record Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. Arguably, you can't call this series 'Canadian Covers' without it.
