If Kacey Musgraves and Meghan Trainor had a country-soul love-child, the result would be Calgary, Canada-based country artist Mariya Stokes. Country Music Alberta’s two-time reigning Horizon Female Artist of the Year (2019 & 2020) has four single releases under her belt and is currently recording her debut EP.
Stokes has opened for acts including Doc Walker, Lindsay Ell, Jade Eagleson, Ru-Paul’s Drag Race superstar Trixie Mattel, and Jann Arden. In addition, she was the 2019 runner-up in Project WILD, a country-focused artist development program run by WILD 95.3 FM (Calgary) and Alberta Music. Stokes was also a 2020 Artist in Residence at the Women’s Centre of Calgary.
