The three JUNOs on her mantelpiece leave no doubt that Susan Aglukark is a Canadian icon, but don’t just take our word for it. When Susan sings, your heart feels a little lighter, the sky seems a little bluer, and the world somehow looks a lot warmer. Her songs range from catchy, upbeat, feel-good melodies that put a spring in your step, to soulful ballads that make you want to curl up in front of the fire. With her unmistakeable voice, as clear as Arctic ice, her carefully crafted lyrics feel like an invitation to a great conversation.
Since her hugely successful breakout playing for thousands of appreciative music-lovers at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, Yukon singer-songwriter Diyet has been growing a devoted fan base with music that is soulful, danceable and a touch rootsy. She writes about life in her rural First Nations community, but the message is universal.
