AllMusic Review by

The United States’ neighbor to the north is well known for its musical exports. From the 1960’s--when Leonard Cohen and the Band rose to prominence--to the 2000s and the popularity of Feist and Broken Social Scene, Canada has produced some of North America’s most vibrant artists. This Starbucks compilation, entitled NORTHERN SONGS, brings together tracks by these artists, as well as cuts by k.d. lang, Sarah McLaughlan, Cowboy Junkies, Diana Krall, Ron Sexsmith, Rufus Wainwright, and others, for a tasty view of Canada’s musical constellation.
