Victoria-based Cree songwriter Tara Williamson reflects on the heartache of losing her infant son as she creates a song in his honour. Her music is an unflinching document of self. Her first 2 EPs, "Lie Low" and "Summer", were received with praise across Turtle Island. Her third album, "Songs to Keep Us Warm", builds on the clever song writing and expressive vocals heard in her first two EPs while revealing the deep heart of an artist willing to risk vulnerability in the pursuit of emotional truth. 

Tara is also a professional writer and educator, who served as Editor of the online Indigenous media platform, Indian & Cowboy, and she is also developing a musical about murdered and missing Indigenous women.  She speaks about her search for meaning and understanding in art after an unspeakable personal loss in her life. She explains, “I would spend time intentionally seeking out art to make sense of my grief and pain. I saw this piece [by Daphne Odjig] that captured so much.” Tara comes upon Anishinaabe artist Daphne Odjig’s painting "Enfolding", forming a special connection with it and undergoing a journey towards healing through the art.
