2015 Canadian Albums by Genre

As promised, we have put together a pie chart of Canadian album releases by genre for 2015. Of 661 albums (LPs) we tracked, we came up with percentages based on genres. As you can see, the genre of choice for Canadian recording artists was singer – songwriter or folk at 143 of the 661 or 21.6% of the total. Close to that was alternative at 21.0% or 139 of the albums. The “other” category includes holiday albums, children’s, dance, reggae, and OST/musical. Bear in mind that genres are quite subjective. The point of this is to show that a wide variety of styles of music is being made and what the more predominant ones are.
