-Inaugural recipient of the Cobalt Prize (2015), a contemporary blues composition award presented at the annual Maple Blues Award. "The prize composition was ‘Hwy 17’ from the album ‘For The Light‘ that speaks to the incomprehensible issue of the near 1200 Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women."
Digging Roots 8 years ago singing their most intense song, which is about residential schools stripping away the Native children's culture. ShoShona seems inspired by Janis Joplin on this performance.
