It’s folk music that’s brimming with the kind of chemistry that could only come from a husband and wife.
Plains-Cree guitarist, Jason Burnstick, and Francophone-Métis singer-songwriter, Nadia Gaudet Burnstick are award-winning duo: Burnstick. Two performers whose voices and languages blend together with ease, Burnstick pushes the boundaries of contemporary folk music, weaving together the unique sounds of vintage Weissenborn guitars with intriguing vocal harmonies, while allowing the beauty of simple melodies to shine through. It's hard to deny the magic they create as they command the stage with their palpable performances. In 2015, they journeyed into the world of children’s music, the time to create an award-winning all-original lullaby album that married languages and bridged cultures. Coming back to their folk roots, Burnstick released its first two singles, "Pay No Mind" and "Some Kind of Hell", topping the charts of NCI's Indigenous Music Countdown. And in 2019, their song "Prayer" was featured as the ending theme song for the important award-winning documentary: nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up. Burnstick has released its long-awaited debut album "Kîyânaw". With this album, Burnstick encourages the reclamation of each other's respective cultures while choosing to be stronger, together.
