Singer Faye Blais

Faye Blais scheduled as Summer Kicks second performance

Ontario songstress Fay Blais will be featured in Kicking Horse Culture's second Summer Kicks installment on June 26.

Summer Kicks has officially begun, and the second show will be featuring Ontario songstress Faye Blais.

Her latest album On the Bright Side, released in May, was recorded at her families cottage in Northern Ontario, and has been hitting the road all over Canada promoting it ever since.

Blais resonates sweet melodies coupled with raw acoustics that turn into the soundtrack to your life. With a powerful stage presence, she is a force to be reckoned with. The indie folk princess easily wins over her audience with quick wit, spontaneity and the ability to reach the warmest parts of their soul.

She has been a full-time musician for the past five years, and has spent much of that time recording and touring overseas, with one-and-a-half year stints in both Taiwan and Australia. She now spits her time between Canada and Australia.

Blais has been featured on several Canadian broadcasts including CBC Radio One, Radio-Canada/CBON Breakfast Television – Calgary, CTV – Sudbury, VUE Weekly – Edmonton, and has recently written the music for a recently released Canadian Aboriginal documentary.

She will be playing the Spirit Square on Tuesday June 26 at 7 p.m. for the second installment of Kicking Horse Culture’s Summer Kicks.
