The Jerry Cans create music inspired by their hometown of Iqaluit,
Nunavut, and life in the Canadian Arctic. With a unique mix of
traditional Inuit throat singing and roots-rock sung in the Indigenous
language of Inuktitut, The Jerry Cans are a distinctly Northern sound.
The band is passionate about helping to preserve the Inuktitut
language and are committed to challenging common misconceptions
about life in the North. Their high energy performances have thrilled
audiences in countries all across the globe including Australia,
Scotland, Greenland, Cuba and Norway.
The Jerry Cans made a splash at the 2018 JUNO Awards in
Vancouver, where the band was nominated for two awards and
performed live on the telecast, in which they shared the stage with
members of their Aakuluk Music family, the Iqaluit-based label they
founded. With recent profiles in Buzzfeed, New Yorker and Today’s
Parent, as well as three Western Canadian Music Award nominations,
the band’s post-JUNO momentum continues to build.
