Fresh off two Music Nova Scotia nominations for "New Artist" and "Pop Record" of the year, this folk rock artist’s debut record has garnered more than 200,000 Spotify streams. Roots Music Canada said of the self titled album, “Awolk digs into the deepest parts of you, pops the bubble between artist and listener, and makes you bleed in the most beautiful way possible.”
A more direct description of the sound is an eclectic list of singable tunes, journeying through alternative electrified folk rock. Produced by Colin Buchanan (Paper Lions, Sorrey) The album has been featured on CBC radio’s East Coast Music Hour, and indie stations across Canada.
Awolk is no stranger to touring. With at least 80 dates across Canada since the record dropped, including supporting Kellie Loder, The Hypochondriacs, and a 20 date national acoustic tour dubbed, “Awolk Across Canada”, a desire to play shows is definitely one of the driving forces behind this rising voice.
After an electric performance at 2019’s Nova Scotia Music Week, Tim Hardy of Halifax’s Sound Of Pop Publishing signed Awolk, joining him with a great team of wonderful east coast artists.
Awolk's latest single is called "Love What's Left”, and he is currently writing and recording his next record.
