    2022 Contemporary Indigenous Juno-winner, DJ Shub has pioneered a growing genre of electronic music – PowWowStep – since his initial start with internationally-acclaimed group A Tribe Called Red. Born Dan General, he is a Mohawk, turtle clan of the Six Nations of the Grand River located in Ontario, Canada. Since the creation of PowWowStep, he has grown more aware of the Indigenous way of life through his music, merging his heritage with his craft. As a solo artist, DJ Shub released his first EP “PowWowStep” in 2016 and has since played some of the biggest music festivals in North America. He’s also been featured in a number of national media outlets. His song “Indomitable” was notably handpicked by Sacha Baron Cohen as the theme music to his hit Showtime series, “Who Is America?”

  • Eekwol and T-Rhyme

    Eekwol and T-Rhyme

    [nehiyaw/Dene]

    Eekwol and T-Rhyme are seasoned rappers from nehiyaw and Dene territories, currently living in Saskatoon. The For Women By Women Project (FWBW) was born out of an awakening and realization that in our music, we need to create the dialogue and steer the narratives to be our own truths. As a nehiyaw iskwewuk (Indigenous women) we are living the results of the damage that colonization placed on our families. Guided by the intentions of creating a good life and a protected path for our daughters, we are changing the story, one rhyme at a time. With beats by Justin Knight, Shane Keepness and Doc Blaze, FWBW is the beginning of a movement. We’re here to lift consciousness, not asses. We’re here to reflect our matriarchal ancestors, not in a bathroom mirror selfie. We are here to recognize our power.

    GEORGE LEACH

    [Sta’atl’imx]

    A multi-disciplined, award winning artist from the Sta’atl’imx Nation (southern interior of British
    Columbia), George Leach is in relentless pursuit of truth. His passion and dedication to songcraft
    has been evident throughout his entire career, which began with the release of his debut album,
    “Just Where I’m At”, in the year 2000. The self-produced album won several Canadian Aboriginal
    Music Awards and garnered international recognition, establishing him as a respected singer,
    songwriter, guitarist and performer.
    With music spanning several genres stemming from rock and soulful blues roots, slide guitar riffs
    on his double neck Gibson, and sounds that blend traditional rhythms with a modern twist, a live
    George Leach performance soon became something not to miss.

  • Hasatuuk

    Hasatuuk

    [Nuu-Chah-Nulth]

    Hasatuuk (Kalilah Rampanen) comes from the western coast of British Columbia, Canada. Her heritage stems from the nuu_aan_u_ (Nuu-chah-nulth) territory on western Vancouver Island, Woodland Cree near Fort McMurray and Finnish ancestry. Kalilah’s music explores a diverse range of indigenous, environmental and social horizons that combine a blend of acoustic, blues and alternative styles of expression. Her passion for music took root at an early age that has blossomed into a trifecta of strong, melodious vocals, captivating guitar riffs and, a meaningful message.

    In addition to her musical path, Kailah is actively involved in activism and advocacy for the protection and preservation of Indigenous lands, culture and language. Kalilah has participated in a wide variety of campaigns that raise awareness of environmental devastation caused by mining, oil extraction, deforestation, climate justice and aquaculture. She uses her music to shed light upon the interconnectedness that is maintained through ancestral, indigenous roots to the lands and waters and she maintains a lifestyle that keeps her connected to her traditional territories, culture and family.

  • Marcel Gagnon

    Marcel Gagnon

    [Lheidli Tenneh]

    Marcel Gagnon is a local musician and elder member of the Lheidli Tenneh Band. Although he’s achieved national recognition as a Juno finalist, Olympic performer and an Elder in Residence at UNBC, he is certain his most fulfilling accomplishment is his connection to family. He lives off the grid and spends his time writing and helping people in need. Marcel feels his music has deepened over time and now writes from his soul.

    [Lheidli Tenneh]

  • Rich & Beka

    Rich & Beka

    [Tsilhqot’in/ Secwepemc]

    Grounded in poetry, rap and melody, Rich n Beka are like fire and water, masculine and
    feminine elements of nature coming together in harmony. Their artistic partnership goes
    back six years, and bridges life and love – they’re engaged to be married and have a
    beautiful daughter together. Both share in the culture of the Tsilhqot’in Nation, Beka (Rebecca Solomon)
    from Xeni Gwet’in and Rich (Richard MacDonald) from Tletinq’ox, West of Williams Lake, BC.
    Rich n Beka carry the power of story, family, and community in their music. Rising up
    from the Tsilhqot’in, their music ignites the passion and presence of healing and
    resilience, the light of hope that shines when cycles of oppression are overcome.
    Unapologetic and powerful, there’s a fierce flow of Earth’s medicine through their song
    stories.

  • Willie Thrasher & Linda Saddleback

    Willie Thrasher & Linda Saddleback

    [Inuvialuit]

    Willie Thrasher is a gifted Inuk singer and songwriter living in Nanaimo, BC with his partner Linda Saddleback. Three of Thrasher’s songs appeared on the 2014 Grammy-nominated compilation, Native North America (Vol. 1), renewing interest in his and other Indigenous artists’ work. Thrasher’s powerful 1981 debut album, Spirit Child, which the 3 songs came from, was then reissued in 2015.

    Thrasher was born in Aklavik, Northwest Territories, in 1948 and at five years of age, Thrasher was taken from his family and sent to a residential school where he was forbidden to practice his Inuvialuit culture. Music was a way for Thrasher to escape the pain and longing. He has recorded both as a solo artist, and as a member of several bands, including The Cordells, and Red Cedar, with Morley Loon.

    Thrasher has advocated for Inuit and First Nations issues for much of his career. Today, Thrasher performs at home and around the world with his partner Linda Saddleback due to the global attention garnered by Native North America (Vol. 1). Wherever he may be, Willie Thrasher is a trailblazing troubadour with an Indigenous heartbeat sound.
