“John K. Samson continues writing songs of solace and expansive generosity.” – PopMatters

Searching for connection and community, Winnipeg’s John K. Samson is one of preeminent poets of the prairie condition. Samson returned in 2016 with a new album called Winter Wheat, a determined, beautiful, resilient response to difficult and extraordinary times. Samson, a solo artist and also a member of famed indie group The Weakerthans, whose articulation of Winnipeg’s complex psyche made an indelible mark worldwide, fuses a punk rock outlook with nuanced, deft arrangements.
