imageCheck out hardworking Cree singer/songwriter Niska!




With her powerful stage presence and guts out attitude, it is no wonder that this young musician is continuously met with overwhelming feedback and support. In the short years Niska has been performing her own material, she has gained the experience of a seasoned professional. In the last year alone Niska has earned a reputation in the Victoria music scene as a rising star, been on numerous tours, and performed at huge events including “The Ollin Kan Music Festival” in Mexico City, “The Dawson City Music Festival”, “Victoria’s 10th and 11th annual SKA Fest” and “The 2008 National Aboriginal Indigenous Games”. Having worked with artists such as Terra Grimard, Sandy Scofield, Noah Becker, Pocket Kings, and Art Napoleon explain her tremendous range and original sound. As a front woman for the Victoria based ska band ROCKY MOUNTAIN REBEL MUSIC Niska has captivated fans across the nation. Jamming and sharing the stage with legends such as Buffy.St.Marie, The Persuasions and The Aggrolites have only proved she can hold her own. With features on APTN’s “MY TV”, “The Mix”, “The New Canoe”, and CBC Radio without a release of her own, Niska has captured the attention of audiences and media alike . With fans eagerly anticipating her first solo release, more than enough tour experience under her belt and the drive to live/breathe tour life you can expect to see a lot more of this indie/rock Canadian Cree princess.
