Wyatt C. Louis “Dancing With Sue” – Listen

Wyatt C. Louis is a Cree-Métis folk singer-songwriter based in Moh’kinstsís (Calgary), and he makes it quite clear that on this song dancing is not a euphemism.   ‘Dancing with Sue‘ is about what it says, as Wyatt explains “I wrote ‘Dancing with Sue’ to serve as a way to cherish many memories and feelings.  As I look back on the past, I see an experience of moving to a new city and cutting teeth into an eclectic music scene. It’s like learning to walk again, but this time it’s much easier.

I have powerful female teachers in my life that have taught me to dance, to be strong, and to be free in my own way. Sue, the girl in the red dress, represents these teachers for me. The song’s chorus bounces between the sun and the moon, representing the sun’s influence and strength, juxtaposed with the moon’s admiration and powerful feminine energy.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
