iskwē AND TOM WILSON SHARE NEW SINGLE “BLUE MOON DRIVE” FEAT. CHUCK COPENACE
Award-winning artists iskwē and Tom Wilson (Junkhouse, Lee Harvey Osmond, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings) release their new single “Blue Moon Drive” featuring trumpeter Chuck Copenace with Red Music Rising. Stay tuned for the lyric video due out on November 12th.
The song was recorded live off the floor with an incredible group of musicians from Jukasa Studios in Six Nations, ON. The magic of trumpeter Chuck Copenace sprinkling in his notes, fluttering in the air, in space, and contributing a different breath to the song was all captured in Winnipeg. The single is an incredible collaboration of not only three amazing artists, but also the celebration of four Indigenous nations uniting together to celebrate their art – iskwē (cree, Métis), Tom (Mohawk), and Chuck (Ojibway).Read More
Tom Wilson’s best selling memoir…
Tom Wilson was raised in the rough-and-tumble world of Hamilton—Steeltown— in the company of World War II vets, factory workers, fall-guy wrestlers and the deeply guarded secrets kept by his parents, Bunny and George. For decades Tom carved out a life for himself in shadows. He built an international music career and became a father, he battled demons and addiction, and he waited, hoping for the lies to cease and the truth to emerge. It would. And when it did, it would sweep up the St. Lawrence River to the Mohawk reserves of Quebec, on to the heights of the Manhattan skyline.
