When Bonnie Ste-Croix decided to move from Vancouver to Halifax to be closer to her mother, she started thinking about home. The Gaspe-born singer-songwriter started to consider not just the cities from coast-to-coast that she's lived in, but also all of the towns she's visited over years of touring and travelling. "I had this moment of thinking: It's kind of like all of Canada is my hometown," says Ste-Croix about her decision to make Canadian Girl, a project that musically represented her connection with the country. Released this week, the record features 13 songs recorded in 12 towns (one in each province and territory) with a help from 46 musicians and singers, a list that boasts Natalie MacMaster, The Once and Catherine MacLellan. Now she's bringing the songs and stories to the "doorsteps of Canadians" with over 30 performances across the country, each one to a hometown crowd. –Allison Saunders
