Aysanabee is Oji-Cree, Sucker Clan of the Sandy Lake First Nation. Aysanabee’s voice introduces himself in a way that words cannot. Solemn and soaring, backed by a swirling blend of indie, soul, and electronic soundscapes, mournful saxophone and pulse-quickening finger-picking, Aysanabee’s striking sound is equal parts hypnotic and melodic.
His debut album, Watin, releasing Nov 4th, has already created buzz. His new single “Nomads” was: #1 on CBC Music Top 20 charts (September 29 – October 6); #22 on Canadian on Alternative Rock charts; #35 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Airplay. The first single off of “Watin”, “We Were Here” charted #2 on the Indigenous Music Countdown. Aysanabee has been highlighted on CBC: The Intro, showcased at AmericanaFEST 2022 in Nashville, TN, and is currently in the JUNO Masterclass.
In a whirlwind year, Aysanabee has performed on major stages across the country and has opened for Half Moon Run & July Talk.
