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.”

k.d. lang: “Let your freak flag fly”
Born Kathryn Dawn Lang in Consort, Alberta, November 2, 1961, k.d. lang launched her career with the independent debut album Friday Dance Promenade in 1983. In 1986 she released Angel With A Lariat to worldwide critical and commercial acclaim.

The legendary Roy Orbison chose her to record a duet of his standard, Crying. The collaboration won them the Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals in 1989. Over the past three decades, k.d. lang has released more than a dozen albums and sold millions of copies worldwide. She has won both JUNO and Grammy awards, was invested into the Order of Canada in 1997, and received a Governor General’s Performing Arts Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement in 2005. She has also been named Female Vocalist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year by the Canadian Country Music Association several times.

Her haunting performance of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah was a highlight at the opening ceremony of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. At the 2013 JUNO Awards ceremony, k.d. lang, an animal rights activist and champion of gay rights, praised Canadians for their acceptance of difference. That evening she was formally inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
