"keeping everyone in attendance completely engulfed in their beautifully dark and poetic songwriting, vibrations of hauntingly and emotional vocal tones effect the listener to the core." - J. Stricker
Wyatt C. Louis is a Nêhiyaw singer-songwriter based in Moh'kinstsís on Treaty 7 Territory. And has made an impact on the eclectic landscape with songs built from soaring melodies, railroad-like finger picking and quiet, haunting vocals and lyrical phrasing. Dark, rustic tales meld folk and soulful blues to tell tales of love, loss and the journey home. They’re beautiful, subtle creations that juxtapose emotions, striking imagery and experiences that charm and envelop listeners. The sweet and intimate EP 'On a Journey for the Long Run' (2017), had earned airplay on CBC, CKUA and campus radio across Canada.
Louis’ upcoming release, 'Dancing with Sue', evokes the feeling of nostalgia, and yearning for the times in our lives where we feel the happiest and most free. Captured effortlessly through warm tones and colourful song writing. The song is dedicated to supportive friends whom they've met through various music collectives. 'Dancing with Sue' - in June of 2020, was released via Canadian label, Slow Weather.
