Theresa Sokyrka will be bringing her personal brand of music from across the world to the Rockwater Bar and Grill in Golden on May 22.

Sokyrka gained cross Canada fame almost ten years ago when she was the runner up of season two of Canadian Idol.

Since then she has gone on to record a certified gold album and released a sophomore album Something is Expected, consisting entirely of original music.

Over the years, since her experience on television, Sokyrka seemed to be able to stay away from the typical pop star route that seemed to be laid out for her.

She enlisted the help of producers John Collins and David Carswell (New Pornographers, The Evaporators), and Mike Timmins (The Cowboy Junkies) to provide the musical backing that allowed her songs to come through to any audience.

For the past ten years, Theresa has been criss-crossing Canada, never staying in one place for long.

“Sometimes I feel that the only reason I move around so much is because I’m afraid that getting comfortable would create a monumental writer’s block,” she said on her website. “I’ve always been someone who craves excitement. There is nothing more exciting than moving to a new place. Inspiration comes to life with experience.”

Being on the Trans-Canada highway for a new tour will also mark the release of her newest project Prairie Winds
