Annie Sumi is an ethereal-folk artist with a unique ability to capture the subtleties of nature and spin them into melodies. Her latest release, “In the Unknown”, is a collection of stories that speak to the journey of the human-Spirit. Since the release of her debut album, she has received nominations for “New/Emerging Artist of the Year” (Canadian Folk Music Awards, 2018), “Best Singer-Songwriter” (TIMAs, 2015), “New/Emerging Artist of the Year” (Hidden Roots Collective, CFMAs, 2017), and more. This year, with the support of the Ontario Arts Council, Annie Sumi carried these landscapes of sound across Canada, coast-to-coast, and Central Europe. Her live performance is a journey into the permeable nature of the heart; she is a vulnerable vessel that consistently leaves it all on the stage, and inspires the audience to feel something.
From festival stages to intimate house concerts, Piper Hayes reminds us of why we go to see live music. Her songwriting is free and fiercely personal; as if it’s been running in the woods, washing in cold water, and howling with wolves. Piper’s immersive storytelling provides context and familiarity, drawing the audience into the conversation. She is a two time nominee of the Ontario Arts Council’s Colleen Peterson Songwriting Aware in 2016/2017 and an advocate for mental health and social change.
