This spring, Manitoba Music is sharing some of the stories behind the songs of four inspiring artists from Manitoba with new video series, Safe + Sound.

Presented with the support of Safe At Home MB, the video series explores music creation in our communities and the undeniable connection local musicians have to their stomping grounds, their homes, studios, neighbourhoods, and favourite music venues.

This genre-spanning series offers a glimpse at the creative spaces of each artist as they share insights into their artistic process and their connections to their neighbourhoods. Episodes also capture a pair of performances from each act, including exciting returns to cherished music rooms, filmed on location with 4/4 Films.

In episode 2, award-winning country singer/songwriter Desiree Dorion takes us on a walk down country trails, talks community support in Dauphin and giving her creative process the space it deserves, and shares how she finds inspiration in the quiet day-to-day and solace through songwriting.
