    I Want These Stories Told - Michael Frisby,
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 2019 Female Artist of the Year introduced herself with two singles in 2019. Her debut single, "Hands on My Body” was was the #1 most active indie at Canadian Radio the week of its release and has over 140,000 streams on Spotify. “Rebound”, her third single, was released in October 2020 was featured as the “Next Big Thing” on the Casey Clarke Country Countdown and can be heard on Spotify curated playlists "Take it Slow" and "Live Country". Stokes will be releasing additional singles in early 2021.
Growing up in the small town of Stavely, Alberta an hour south of Calgary, Stokes was raised in her parents' small-town bar, and at eight years old was sneaking in on Friday afternoons to sing with the local jam band. Now a seasoned performer, Stokes has opened for acts including Doc Walker, Jann Arden, Ru-Pauls Drag Race superstar Trixie Mattel, and Jade Eagleson and was one of three artists selected to work with 19-time CCMA winner Terri Clark at the National Music Centre during their RBC Master in Residence program in 2019. 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 cares deeply about empowering women in her community, and is an Artist in Residence at the Women’s Centre of Calgary for 2020.
