INCANDESCENT TALES In the fall of 2019 I recorded my first CD at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. I am very excited as this is my first full-length of traditional to contemporary music for the flute. This project of Indigenous Classical music is funded by the Canada Council for the Arts Short-term projects in Creating, Knowing and Sharing and Calgary Arts Development ArtShare program.
"Inni" was an official Fairy Tales Film Festival 2020 Selection and nominated for World/Cultural Recording of the year and Prophets of Music Emerging Artist Award for the 2021 YYC Music Awards. It is also nominated for a Native America Music Award (2021)
NEW ALBUMS IN THE WORKS
I am also excited to announce that I am writing a new album of original music, supported by Calgary Arts Development. This project is also supported by the Connexions program from Canadian New Music Network and will be recorded in late 2022.
I acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
