MUSIC YUKON - "Music Yukon is at the heart of Yukon’s emergence as a national leader in the creation, production, presentation, sale and distribution of music by Yukon artists."
Song Rise Filled with Diversity and Talent - Yukon Women in Music (YWIM) have released their fourth album, which is as musically diverse as their membership.
Founded in 1998, the YWIM collective brings together female singer-songwriters who pool their talent and resources for concerts and recording opportunities. To date, it has released a live album, a sampler of pre-recorded tracks and a more cohesive album with a backing band. The album Song Rise, released in November, is the YWIM's second sampler of new and previously released material.
The songs range from folky BAGWAG (boys and girls with acoustic guitars) to heavy rockers, with some jazz in between. This is what you'd expect from women of various age groups, languages, ethnicities and styles. It celebrates the talent and diversity of female Yukon musicians.
