For 40 years, this Canadian musical legend has been capturing in song the essence of human experience — while fiercely striving to make it better. One of Canada's finest artists, Bruce Cockburn has enjoyed an illustrious career shaped by politics, spirituality, and musical diversity. «My job,» he explains, «is to try and trap the spirit of things in the scratches of pen on paper and the pulling of notes out of metal.» Throughout his career, Cockburn has deftly captured the joy, pain, fear, and faith of human experience in song. Whether singing about retreating to the country or going up against chaos, tackling imperialist lies or embracing ecclesiastical truths, he has always expressed a tough yet hopeful stance: to kick at the darkness till it bleeds daylight. «We can't settle for things as they are,» he once warned. «If you don't tackle the problems, they're going to get worse.»
