Digawolf, AKA Jesse James Gon, is a passionate singer-songwriter who performs with great respect for his Tlicho culture. His songs have a contemporary context – part blues, part folk, part rock – complimented by masterful guitar playing that draws inspiration from the land. It exposes the conflicts that arise from the evolution of his native culture, and his place in the two worlds that dominate northern life. Every song is an explosion of imagery that takes you on a ride across the Northern landscapes and into the hearts of the people that live there. His recordings have received Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards, and his fourth CD, Distant Morning Star, was nominated for a 2010 Juno.
