About Stamp

From the twangy notes and yodels of Hank Snow to the mellow tones of Tommy Hunter, the Quebec folk influence on Renée Martel, and the crossover hits of Shania Twain and k.d. lang, this issue presents a broad spectrum and some of the greatest Canadian names in country music.

Each stamp has been individually designed – by Sabrina McAllister and Xerxes Irani (Twain, Martel and Snow) and Subplot’s Roy White (lang and Hunter) – to capture the unique style of the artists. The designs are founded on photographs that epitomize the way these five talented singers are known to their fans. This issue was made possible by the decision to produce five separate booklets and Official First Day Covers – one for each artist – plus a souvenir sheet that brings them together in perfect harmony.

Says designer Sabrina McAllister, “For the design and approach to the stamps, I focused on bringing out the personality of each musician in the style of typography, use of photography and colour palette.”

Renée Martel: Her father’s daughter
Born in Drummondville, Quebec, in 1947, Renée Martel grew up in a home filled with music; both parents were professional musicians. In 1967, Renée moved to Montréal, where she kicked off her career by being named Discovery of the Year and making a number of television appearances. In 1969, her first three singles – Liverpool, Je vais à Londres, and Viens changer ma vie were hits that made Renée Martel a household name.

Over her career, she has recorded close to 25 albums and more than 50 singles, some of which were Felix Award winners. Her sound incorporates modern and traditional styles, pop music and, of course, her country heritage.

Since her 2002 autobiography, Ma vie, je t’aime, the Quebec star has completed other albums, Un amour qui ne veut pas mourir (2006), L’héritage (2008), Une femme libre (2012), and more recently, La fille de son père (2014), a tribute to her father. Building on a long and outstanding career, Renée Martel continues to perform for her many adoring fans with boundless energy and love of life.
