 Danielle Todd: Crazy

By Kerry Doole

Danielle Todd - "Crazy" (Independent): This is the debut radio single from the Canadian country singer/songwriter, and it is one with real commercial potential.


The song, co-written with Caitie Thompson and Bobbi Holliday, is bubblier than a case of Moet. Todd explains in a press bio that" I have been writing more upbeat and happier songs lately because that’s what I find fun and I find is needed these days. Crazy is fun; it’s one of those songs you bop along to when it comes on in the car.”

The tune depicts someone head over heels in love - "my left eye is twitching, my heart is skipping" - and the equally good-natured video clip is a fitting accompaniment.

Raised in Guelph, ON, Todd is now paying her dues in Nashville. After a decade of performing in venues across Ontario, she Todd moved to Music City three years ago, developing her writing chops while gigging relentlessly in the bars. “It's not unusual for me to gig five to seven days a week, and it’s not unusual for me to play 14 days in a row if I get asked to pick up some last-minute shows,” she says. 

Todd returns north of the border for a radio promo tour of Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba from Feb. 25 to March 8.

Tanya Tagaq Plays a Pivotal Role in 'True Detective' Season Finale

The Inuk artist provides vocals for the HBO series' soundtrack, and her song "Submerged" scores a pivotal moment in the season finale on which she appears as an actress.

The new season of True Detective wrapped up this weekend, and timed with the tense final episode, HBO also released the show's gripping soundtrack. Inuk artist Tanya Tagaq, one of the most celebrated contemporary musicians in Canada, contributed to seven songs on the soundtrack as well as making appearances in the show herself.

Subtitled Night Country, the fourth season of the HBO detective show takes place in the fictional town of Ennis, Alaska. It stars Jodie Foster and Kali Reis as Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro, two police officers trying to figure out how the recent bizarre deaths of six scientists are linked to the murder of Iñupiaq activist Annie Kowtok. Through its mystery framing, the show explores themes like colonial violence, environmental destruction, and missing and murdered Indigenous women.
