Faye Blais ~
Chances are if you’re a blues/folk music fan from Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, or most of North America, you’ve heard of Faye Blais. The Ontario native has spent the last several years of her music career touring extensively and recording in these locales, positively kicking butt with acoustic & electric guitar, and a fabulous dynamic voice. Throughout her years overseas, Faye performed over 200 shows, including international folk festivals (Port Fairy Folk Festival, Woodford Folk Festival – AUS, Spring Scream, Peacefest – TW) and received great attention from radio, TV and print media (BLTV, ICRT – TW, Noise TV, ABC, RRR, FasterLouder, MX – AUS, CTV – NZ), in addition to compilation album features and placements in productions by Australian Red Cross and the Oak Tree Foundation (AUS). Since arriving back in Canada during September 2009, Faye was chosen as CBC Radio 3′s New Music Canada Track of the Day for “Something’s Changed”, nominated for 4 Northern Ontario Music and Film Awards 2010, winning “Best Vocal Performance”, and has been invited to perform at Eaglewood Folk Festival, Northern Lights Festival Boreal, Robson Valley Music Festival, and Music on the Mountain Folk Festival. With three cross-Canadian Tours over the year, Faye has also been featured on CBC Radio One, Radio-Canada/CBON, Breakfast Television in Calgary, and CTV in Sudbury. January 2011 sees Faye head back to Australia, New Zealand and Taiwan for more touring!
