2023 release. Five years after winning the Polaris Music Prize with his ground-breaking debut, Jeremy Dutcher has returned with a radiant exploration of contemporary Indigeneity and his place within it. With songs performed in his people's Wolasotqey language but also, for the first time, in English, Motewolonuwok extends beyond anything the musician has made before, encompassing traditional song, starlit ballads and staggering orchestrations. "With my first record, the concept was so clear, so complete," Dutcher says. This time, "I wanted [to make an LP] that wasn't always so sure of itself." Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa, released in 2018, vaulted Dutcher into the upper echelons of Canadian performance, from the Polaris and Juno Award stages to the judges' panel on Canada's Drag Race. The follow-up is more intimate, more personal, inspired by his growing understanding of the "middle space" of being Two Spirit-Indigenous and queer.
