Wyatt C. Louis
Wyatt C. Louis is a nêhiyaw singer-songwriter based in Moh’kinstsís on Treaty 7 Territory (Calgary, AB). He has made an impact on the eclectic city 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.
Louis’ recent 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 songwriting.
This year, CBC’s Reclaimed included Louis on the Indigenous Artists to Watch in 2021 list.
