Can I say "me"? :D

Honestly, for me I adore the mid-period Hip. Between Phantom Power and World Container is an amazing run of albums that are interesting, experimental indie-rock with great lyrics and wonderful production. I totally dig them.

As far as best "artistic" choice I have to say Neil Young, clearly.

The one I most enjoy listening to? RUSH, baby.

Shocked by who is not on the list yet. No:

Arcade Fire
Drake
The Weeknd
Biebs
Allessia Cara
Hank Snow
The Trews
The Headstones


In fact, most of the top current crop of successful Canadian acts are not listed. I'm guessing this is a function of the forum being more guitar centric. And yes, I know how to spell Favourite.

Everybody in The Band except for Levon Helm, who isn't Canadian so is technically disqualified, and Robbie Robertson, who is a dick.

Rush has always been up there.
Max Webster and Kim Mitchell
Dug a lot of Tragically hip up to Phantom Power
Lately the Bros. Landreth (and Joey's solo material) is in constant rotation here.
Offenbach, Gerry Boulet (solo), Brasse-Camarade, etc. for great songs and playing
Wayne Eagles is also great to listen to (and to hang)

On the indie-er front, Slyde, Cécile Doo-Kingué, Joly, Ricky Paquette
