2019 CONTEMPORARY ROOTS ALBUM OF THE YEAR | Megan Nash | | The JUNO Awards
JUNO WEEK 2020

Calling her latest album Seeker was a natural choice for Megan Nash as she admits to being on a quest for spiritual meaning for some time now. Finding it on her own terms seems to have only intensified in the past few years, and she channeled those thoughts into Seeker’s 10 songs, particularly the title track. On it, the native of rural Saskatchewan lyrically draws from several recent life-changing experiences while venturing into new, anthemic sonic territory. The song, in many ways, is a microcosm of Seeker as a whole. As the follow-up to Nash’s acclaimed 2015 album Song Harvest Volume One, Seeker brilliantly captures her creative evolution since then by taking her personal, roots-based songwriting to bold new heights in the studio. The most obvious contrast to Nash’s previous work is that on Seeker she collaborated with a band for the first time, the Regina-based ambient/alt-rock unit Bears In Hazenmore, and the chemistry they share was evident from their first meeting.
