BIO

Fierce and feisty, Haida/Cree singer-songwriter Kristi Lane Sinclair is emblematic of a new wave of Canadian aboriginal artists who are turning perceptions upside down. Raised in British Columbia’s backwaters, and drawing more from a DIY/indie esthetic than traditional or mainstream music, Sinclair’s musical roots create a darkly intoxicating mix of grunge, folk and classical. Her ‘smoky folk’ is rich and orchestral, underpinned with alternately snarling guitars and warm cello. Through the richly unpredictable mélange her hoarse, blade-edged voice and serrated wordplay weave smoke around irreconcilable longings, great love and the sea.

Fellow Cree artist Cris Derksen is a frequent collaborator, winding moody cello around Sinclair’s searing guitar. The two friends have created a touring festival, Red Ride, that brings together some of North Americas finest creative indigenous artists like Nick Sherman. Laura Ortman and George Leach.

Here’s a little diddy and some views from Greece. I wrote it after I thought I was going to sink to the bottom of the sea on a leaky ferry.

A collective of Aboriginal musicians will hit the road May 16 taking their showcase of artists across the country in what is described as an eclectic community of culture.

From a cellist and violinist to a guitar god and grunge goddess, Red Ride Tour: The 4-eva will embark on a two-week tour across Turtle Island from Vancouver to New York City. Anchored by classical grunge rocker Kristi Lane Sinclair and critically-acclaimed composer and cellist Cris Derksen, they will be joined at various gigs by 2014 Juno Award winning rocker George Leach, celebrated songstress Jennifer Kreisberg, pop diva Iskwé and rising folk singer Nick Sherman. 

“This is our fourth year in a row taking indigenous acts on the road across Canada, and each year it grows,” says Sinclair, the brainchild behind the Red Ride Tours.  “It started out as just Cris and me, in my little Chevy Optra hatchback driving across Canada playing live music venues,” she explains.  “And now this year, we have acts like George Leach and Jennifer Kreisberg wanting to join the tour for a few dates.”

The Red Ride Tour begins in Vancouver on May 16 and will make stops in 14 cities including Banff, Calgary, Regina (where they will pick up Leach), Winnipeg (that is quickly becoming the Aboriginal musical center of the universe), Thunder Bay, Toronto, Montreal and culminating in Brooklyn, NY, on June 1.

To book interviews with any of the artists please contact Kim Wheeler at KIMAGE Entertainment by email at kimage.wheeler@gmail.com or cell at 204.782.3266.
