Biography

Jason, a Plains-Cree guitarist, and Nadia, a Francophone-Métis singer-songwriter, create Burnstick. A husband-wife team whose voices and languages blend together with ease, Burnstick pushes the boundaries of contemporary folk music while allowing the beauty of simple melodies to shine through. In 2015, they created an award-winning all-original lullaby album that married languages and bridged cultures. Burnstick released its JUNO-nominated debut album Kîyânaw, which encourages the reclamation of each other’s cultures while choosing to be stronger, together.
