About this Event

Singer-Songwriter Kym Gouchie is from the Lheidli T'enneh Nation also knows as Prince George, BC. Canada. A self taught guitar player and a traditional hand drummer, she utilizes her eclectic background to inspire her as she combines elements of traditional, folk and country to create a unique voice, using her music for reconciliation, education and awareness. Kym's stories are woven together with threads of personal journeys which have taken her from personal tragedy to triumph and are a testament to the human spirit. An artist with a social conscience, Gouchie has become a favorite among the music festival circuit with her debut album ‘Mountain of Youth’ (2014) which is emboldened with poignant, uplifting and inspirational lyrics. Her resonating tones of traditional first nations, folk, and country has captured the hearts from young to old and all walks of life.

Her single 'Sister Rain' (2015) reached #1 on the NCIFM National Aboriginal Top 40 Music Countdown and 'For The People' was selected to be included on the Truth & Reconciliation Compilation CD which was created to educate people about the Canadian Residential School experience. In 2015 she became a member of the Kh’astan Drummers in Prince George and is a sought after performer for Traditional Welcoming Ceremonies, School presentations and Cultural Gatherings. Since her second CD, ‘Northern Shining Star Woman(2017), Kym has been playing festivals across BC: ArtsWells, All Thing Art (Wells),Midsummer Music Festival (Smithers), World Music Festival (West Kelowna), Hay Fever Festival (Grassy Plains) and Robson Valley Music Festival (Dunster). Kym also works with the Red Dress Campaign Society in Prince George and has composed the song ‘Cleansing the Highway’ which pays tribute to the murdered and missing women and girls along the Highway of Tears. This powerful song was a collaboration recorded in Toronto with the Dixon Hall Music School & in Prince George at the CFUR Radio Studio and became the final track on her latest album Northern Shining Star Woman.

An inspirational mother of four and Grandmother of nine, Kym is also a respected Elder of the Lheidli T’enneh and an Aboriginal advocate, spokeswoman and member of the Aboriginal School District Elders and Knowledge Keepers Committee in the Prince George region. It is an honour to have her come share her music and stories here in Lions Bay.
