Trail of Tears - Behind the Song Podcast

Recently, Trail of Tears was released to radio as my very first radio single. I'm a little behind on radio releases but I am so excited to finally get the ball rolling! So far, there are about twenty radio stations who have picked it up! I think that this is perfect timing. With my National Aboriginal Day performance coming up, and Trail of Tears on the radio, I've decided to post a lyric video onto YouTube this Friday! As always, stay tuned on here and via my Twitter @SierraJamerson for everything #TeamSJ. Trail of Tears is a song written about the historical event of the same name. Following the Indian Removal Act of 1830, members of the Cherokee, Choctow, Muscogee, Chickasaw and Seminole tribes were forcibly relocated from their traditional lands in southeast U.S to an area west of Mississippi, Indian Territory. Of the 16,000 who were moved, up to 6000 perished in the trek, much of which took place during winter. I have Choctaw ancestry on my mother's side but I wrote this song not only in honour of the Indigenous people who died during the Trail of Tears. It is also in honour of the Tahltan struggle to preserve our Sacred Headwaters from exploitation and resource accumulation by Shell Oil. Many Tahltans still live on our traditional territory, downstream from where the proposed mines and environmental destruction were to take place. We still live off the land to a large extent, being so far north that store bought food and goods are quite expensive. My own grandmother and many other grandmother's risked their freedom in protest to protect this land, in turn ensuring that a natural area considered by scientists to be a major lung of the earth, would continue to live on. This sounds like ancient history, but it all took place about ten years ago, and continues to be negotiated to this day. My elders have charged me with the responsibility to go forth and share the message of my people with the world, and I am pleased to do so with Trail of Tears. Look out for more celebrations of Aboriginal history and culture this Sunday, in Churchill Square with my band, on your radio dial, and on Youtube. Love, SJ

Seasons/ Native Waves Radio 

My Friends,
I have been a little quieter than usual these days, taking some time to live my life, and rebuild. Don't think I've been sleeping away though! I have planted little seeds that are slowly starting to bloom, all they need is some love and tending to. I have a couple of announcements I'd like to make about exciting things happening with my music....but not quite yet :) Here's a hint: You will be seeing and hearing more of me in other places of the world!!!!! I am so excited. I wish I could tell you all the details. Give it a few days <3

I want to say hello to all of the visitors I've had from across the world recently! Hello Brazil! Hello Czech Republic! Hello China! Hello Spain! Welcome to #TeamSJ

The #RISEUPTOUR is happening soon, and the Edmonton show is going to be great, with Delaney Rose, Andre Longtin, and Lance King all joining me to raise funds for
RIbbon Rouge, the charity I support. I hope to see you there <3

I would like to send a special thank you to Native Waves Radio for putting Blood in the Water into rotation! Thank you for supporting Indigenous artists, thank you for what you do, and thank you for listening!

HAPPY THROWBACK THURSDAY! Here's a video from way back in the day, my cover of Officially Missing You <3

Black Super Moon/Rise Up Tour Dates 

Hello #TeamSJ!

I hope y'all are feeling as good about life as I am right now! After every dark night there really and truly comes a new day. So far 2015 has asked a lot of me, in terms of time, organisation, planning, and playing countless shows. I have a problem with saying "no" to things but I'm working on it. In return, 2015 has given me new love not only for other people, but for myself. She has given me a winter of sowing seeds, of harnessing my own strengths, of following my intuition, and allowing the shadows inside me to come to light. This has been a very healing past two months. I'm beginning to see the different areas where my focus on nurturance and healing is manifesting. Above all, I am excited and grateful. Tonight is a Black Super Moon, where the New Moon is the closest it ever gets on it's rotational axis to Earth. Alongside king tides fantastic for surfers, those of us who are a little "wooooo" in our beliefs say this moon is a particularly powerful time to release old energy, and engage in any rituals that promote health, beauty, new business opportunities, and inner reflection. I'm not very good at meditation but I might give it a go tonight ;). My life has always followed the cycle of the seasons, and the moon is often compared to the cycles within the female body. This year feels no different to me. This is a time of transition, of gearing up for what the spring will bring. This is a year of blessings, of reaping what is sown.

So what's next, you ask? How about the official dates for my Spring Tour?!?!

March 7th -SkirtsAfire Her Arts festival [Edmonton]
April 3rd -Edmonton Pride Centre Fundraiser w/ Evan Westfal
May 24 - Devon, AB
May 29th - Victoria, BC
May 30th -Langley, BC
May 31- Kamloops, BC
June 2nd- Calgary, AB

May this Black Super Moon mark a period of new beginnings, of growth, of healing and rebirth in all of your lives as well.


Lay Me Down -New Cover!!! 

Another very delayed post, but a post nonetheless!

Things have been great over here on #TeamSJ. Last weekend I played a fundraiser for the Metis and Dene northern trappers of La Loche, who have set up an outdoor tent blockade in -50 weather to preserve their traditional hunting and trapping lands from bitumen and other mineral development [exploitation]. Black History month is almost upon us, and I have a few exciting shows then too! I'm still trying to find some balance in my schedule between teaching full time, being creative, and sharing creativity with all of you, and it really and truly is a challenge. Thank you all for sending me lots of love during this very transitionary period of my life and career. 

  I'm going to have some news for you soon regarding that tour this summer and some festival dates! Not to mention...sponsorships?!?!?!

Here's a video of myself singing Sam Smith's "Lay Me Down" at  a private concert in December. All the best for 2015!!!! xoxoxoxo


Since You've Been Goooooone! I Can Breathe For the First TIme!!! 

Team SJ Friends and Fam,
I am the literal worst for letting this blog slide this badly. To say I've been overwhelmed, or busy, would be putting things mildly. Here's what's happened since we last spoke:

- My band and I played the Edmonton International Jazz Festival! It was a fantastic night, and a great opportunity.

-I finally went on vacation.

-Upon regrouping, the lineup of my band slowly changed. I am a-ok with this, as I love playing with just myself and my piano [Alicia Keys]. I have a few players now that i'm excited to be with come Ribbon Rouge on November 21.

-I HAVE A MANAGER!!!!! Mark Rosner, of Rosner Management Services, is a really great guy with a keen eye for business. He takes care of a lot of the behind the scenes stuff for me nowadays including....

-BOOKING MY SPRING TOUR OMG YALL IT'S ABOUT TO GO DOWN!! I can't give away the details yet but it's a real thang, CANADA WIDE.

-I am writing a hip-hop based mixtape and slowly recording that. My producer, Samjay  [check him out right here yall] is a really talented dude. It's a very slow process and this record is dealing with a lot of complicated issues. Dredging up those old childhood core wounds, yall know I'm bout it.

-I've written probably 15 new songs. Let's just say I've been processing a lot of new ideas.

-[She's Gonna] Save the World is being played on Women of Substance Radio based in Los Angeles, California. That means i have just achieved INTERNATIONAL AIRPLAY THANK YOU BASED GODDESS!!!!

I'm going to try and update this space more regularly as I want to keep everyone informed of my happenings. I love you guys, truly.


Indiegogo Fundraiser 

   We are well on our way to our goal of independent media takeover!!!! My social media manager, Jasmine Thompson, has been spending many an uncomfortable hour with burned corneas, tweeting, fanreaching, facebooking, internet radioing --and a whole lot of other stuff I wasn't sure existed. As for me? Well we have back to back gigs this weekend, June 27th at the Edmonton International Jazz Festival and June 28th with fellow Tahltan singer Jasmine Netsena at Fusia Coral Lounge. I've been rehearsing a metric crapton, and walking the red carpet with politicians! It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Another thing that's happening which is amazing: We are launching our very first Indiegogo Campaign for the Blood in the Water Music Video! We have the best film crew, the best actors, and the best director in Alberta lined up, but we need one thing---MONEY. [womp womp] This is where all my beautiful fans like you all come in. Please check out this link and if you can't contribute, at least take a few seconds to share!  -xoxoxo SJ
