Biography

nêhiyawak hails from amiskwaciy in Treaty 6 Territory. The trio of Indigenous Canadian artists – Kris Harper (vocals, guitars), Marek Tyler (drums), and Matthew Cardinal (synths, bass) – transcends a new intersection of contemporary sound and the traditional storytelling of their ancestry. Their music is a resonant expression of indigeneity in the modern world.

Following the release of two singles – the intricately textured “somnambulist” and the liquid narrative arc of “page” (featuring spoken word by poet Marilyn Dumont) – nêhiyawak announces the 2018 starlight EP: a collection of five songs that reflect the vast range of a band emboldened with the powerful inflection of its rich cultural connection.
