2020 Saskatchewan Music Award Indigenous Artist of the Year The North Sound is cold like Saskatchewan winter, humid like a summer day in the streets of Montreal, and is unpredictable like the weather on a singular day in Calgary. The North Sound is ever-changing with lyrics spanning across haunting metaphors and a sound balanced between today’s modern production and the era of Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris blazing the highways.
Formed in 2014 by Forrest Eaglespeaker supported by his partner Nevada Freistadt, The North Sound was created as a way to share stories in keeping true to Forrest’s Blackfoot identity and traditions from Treaty 7Territory. The North Sound has had three singles reach number one on the Indigenous Music Countdown as well as Saskatchewan’s MBC Radio, and has received three nominations from the SCMA; two for Roots Artist of the Year and one for Emerging Artist of the Year. Sharing the stage with the likes of Blue Rodeo, Kathleen Edwards, Eagle and Hawk, Derek Miller, Susan Aglukark, Celeigh Cardinal, Logan Staats, and many more.
