Featured Artist: Old Man Canyon

The Toronto festival North by Northeast, better known as NXNE, is about to take place June 13-22 and one of the artists performing this year is Old Man Canyon.

 

Old Man Canyon is Jett Pace and if you’re into folk music, then you will like him. His music has a very Lumineers feel to it. I like the sound of his voice (very soothing) and how honest his lyrics are. His song “Wiser” has amazing lyrics with a beautiful video to go along with it. It depicts a child discovering a city for the first time and realizing how magical the world is. The video was shot by Tavi Parusel in Vancouver!

 

I take the video as a message to view the world as just as magical a place as we viewed it as a kid…and to take nothing for granted because life is beautiful.

 

His music has been featured in hit shows like Suits and Awkward and he recently opened for Foster the People when they were in Vancouver. You can listen to his Phantom & Friends EP here. 

 

He will be playing NXNE June 20 at 159 Manning at 9:15 p.m.
