On the first Monday in May each year, schools across Canada celebrate the impact of music and music education with Music Monday. To mark the occasion, we invited several prominent Canadian musicians across a variety of genres to pen a letter to a music teacher who has greatly influenced their career. Then, when possible, we spoke to the teacher about the letter.
Here, Edmonton's Cadence Weapon discusses his first musical mentor, who also happens to be his uncle, musician Brett Miles.
A version of Uncle Brett's favourite Cadence Weapon song, "House Music."
Cadence Weapon's new album is called Hope in Dirt City. It's out on May 29, and it features the aforementioned song, "Conditioning."
