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

Thanks, buddy!

Another Fred Eaglesmith vote here. Particularly "Flying Squirrels" era Fred. Although "Smoking Losers" era Fred was fun. As was "Flathead Noodlers" era Fred.

After 8 pages I can list someone who is really my favorite artist from Canada, and who doesn't appear to have been mentioned yet. Though Canada is of course a big country with tons of great musicians and so much variety, and there are many from all over the musical map that are favorites in their own way.

Anyway, Sue Foley is from Canada, moved to Austin when she was I think 19 and is also thought of for good reason as an Austin artist. Dual citizenship, Canada and Austin!

I have a bit of a D.O.A. story - I moved to Vancouver BC in 1976 and started hanging out at a guitar shop at 9th and Granville after I bought a guitar there in '77. Punk was just starting make a scene around then and it was funny seeing the local musicians change from showing up in polyester bell bottom suits to ripped plaid and safety pins as they transitioned from disco gigs to punk. One day when I dropped by the store the owner was behind the counter laughing so hard his face was red - "You know Joe, eh?" he asked when I came up to the counter. I said I'd seen him in the store but hadn't met him, "He just had his name changed! He had it legally changed to Joey Shithead!!"

Now I don't know about the legally changed part, but there you go...
