Juno Award winning/Polaris shortlisted hip-hop that flows with a smile.
Shad is a Juno Award winning rapper and 3-time Polaris Music Prize shortlist nominee from London, Ontario. Presently touring the continent in support of his recent release, “A Short Story About War,” we are beyond excited that Shad will be joining us for his first visit to Smithers, BC! From musician to radio host on CBC Q, to hip-hop documentarian on HBO and back to music again, Shad is on a creative roll that will be showcased at Midsummer this summer!
“If you boil down Shad’s trajectory as a hip-hop artist up to this point, it all comes down to love. At a show, his people stare up at him with unconditional amounts of the stuff and he has used his platform as a rapper, a musician, and a writer, to search for and highlight all the love this hard world has to offer.” (Vish Khanna).
