About the artists:

Aaron Karpinka -

Saskatoon singer-songwriter with a Tender Heart sharing his songs and energy with Regina! Always a treat to have Aaron back in The Queen City!

OKIMAW ᐅᑭᒪᐤ -

OKIMAW ᐅᑭᒪᐤ is the roots music project created by nêhiyaw/Plains Cree singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Aren Okemaysim, who hails from the Beardy’s & Okemasis Cree Nation in Treaty #6 territory.

Infusing soaring vocals, impactful lyrical statements, and a dynamic array of musical arrangements, his debut album takes listeners on a journey through what it feels like to be an Indigenous person in Canada, putting topics like race-relations, MMIW, and residential schools in the hot seat.

Riva Farrell-Racette -

Riva Farrell Racette is an Indigenous singer-songwriter with strong ties to the prairies. Riva has been a member of Regina's local music scene for many years, playing bass in a number of Regina indie bands including, Sylvie (members of Despistado, Rah Rah, and Robot Hive), the Florals (members of the Steves and Library Voices), and a two-piece drum and bass project called Spoils.

Nick Faye -

Nick Faye is a songwriter from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, living on Treaty 4 Territory. Growing out of the same Saskatchewan emo-acoustic-hardcore scene of the late 2000's that spawned the likes of Andy Shauf, Foxwarren, and Northcote, Faye crafts timeless songs that honour this past, embracing the hopes, dreams and frustrations of life lived in the Canadian Prairies. Fusing this with a clear love of mid-90s Pop Rock (think Rick Dees and The Weekly Top 40 in 1999), he creates songs that stick in the mind like a prairie snowdrift - taking their sweet time to melt away, slowly revealing the hope of new beginnings to come.
