Lance Sampson, aka Aquakultre (lyricist; vocals; guitar): an uncommonly versatile singer, rapper, composer and storyteller. He is a Polaris Prize-nominated, and Prism Prize-winning artist who came to national prominence in 2018 when he won CBC’s Searchlight competition with a recording of his song “Sure”, which he wrote while teaching himself to play guitar while serving a prison sentence at Springhill Institution in Nova Scotia. Lance traces roots through his childhood home in Halifax’s Uniacke Square community to his ancestors in Africville, through the United States and ultimately to Nigeria; His music and lyrics are a poignant reflection of this truth, the story of his personal evolution, and his place in community as an African-Nova Scotian. Aquakultre stands for equality, peace and unity, while standing with those without a voice in their communities.

This track is about my father. he was never really around when I grew up, and I resented him for that and even my dads side of my family for a long time. It wasn't until I got out of prison that I started to forgive him, and talk to him about why he wasn't around, and started to understand why he couldn't. I didn't hold it against him. I forgave him for that, and ever since we've talked, we began to build our relationship from the ground up, realizing how much we had in common. It was my dad's side where I get all my creative juices, he himself is also a great singer, and song writer, also a professional boxer, who has lived an astonishing life. Love you Popsmore
