Each week, Essentials allows Canadian musicians to share the things that have helped get through through the pandemic, and why they still can’t live without them. This week, Ewan and Shamus Currie of BROS and The Sheepdogs discuss a few of their favourite things.
Drake (pictured) is named Billboard's Artist of the Decade, the 604 Sessions Song Camp is launched, and Queen Celine returns to Vegas. Also making news are The Rock Hall of Fame, BROS, IRCPA, The Tragically Hip, TikTok, Ken Tizzard, Festival (506), Glenn Chatten, and farewell Pierre Gaudet.
This Sheepdogs offshoot has come up with a new Christmas single that features an appealing melody, sweet lyrics and a cute video. The result is as warm and fuzzy as your favourite old Christmas sweater. Happy holidays to all!
