Canadian singer/songwriter Colin Linden has been delivering his own blues-oriented rock since the early '70s. He plays into heavy gospel and folk as well, making Linden's work most recognizable across Canada. He has released a slew of records throughout the '80s and '90s, most notably winning a Juno Award for South at Eight-North at Nine (1993) in 1994. He made quite an impression on the American homefront with his 1997 release Through the Storm, Through the Night, but Linden continued making music into the new millennium and issued Raised By the Wolves in February 2000. His collaborations also include work with Kim Wilson, Bruce Cockburn, the Band, and Mavis Staples.
