5 Canadian Songs of Winter

Canada sometimes gets a bad rap in the international arena for having cold weather and too much snow. But rather than feeling sorry for ourselves or responding with contempt, we embrace our below zero degree temperature (in celsius, of course) and in true Canadian fashion, we write songs about it.

Below is a selection of 5 Canadian music videos, from Vancouver to Montreal, that capture the Winter vibe as we know it. You won’t find any Michael Bublé or Diana Krall here though, this is Winter music at the grassroots level. Enjoy!

JP HOE – Snow Plow (Winnipeg)

Hilary Grist – Branch’s Arms (Vancouver)

Winter Gloves – Factories / Plastic Slides (Montreal)

Said The Whale – This Winter I Retire (Vancouver)

Winter Equinox – Two Eyes (Waterloo)
