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 collaboration began as a gig at the 2020 Indspire Awards.

We happened to be asked to perform together at the Indspire Awards in Ottawa. We had never sung together so until we actually stepped up to the microphone and started to sing we didn’t know that we had a little bit of magic going on between us;” shares Tom Wilson.

We are able to now share that magic with you.” iskwē adds; “It is a beautiful song, and it was a nice way to find our footing with US. The song was written awhile ago, and it had its home, and now it has a new home, and it feels very much like a new energy has been infused into it. This is just the beginning!

iskwē & Tom are Red Music Rising’s first multi-artist partnership. Matt Maw (Director, Lead Artist Manager) shares; “We are beyond thrilled to release iskwē and Tom’s rendition of “Blue Moon Drive” featuring Chuck Copenace. This release exemplifies what Red Music Rising stands for now, and moving forward; collaboration, community, artistic eminence, and Indigenous excellence.

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).
