People call Tamarack a folk singer, which isn’t exactly wrong. It’s catchy indie-prog-folk with sharp, playful lyrics covering culture shock or Edmonton’s identity crisis. After years of playing Métis music, afro-pop, and garage rock, his music sounds kinda like all those things, and not much like any of those things.
