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 300,000 Spotify streams. Roots Music Canada said of his 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) Awolk's debut album has been featured on CBC radio’s East Coast Music Hour, and indie stations across Canada.
A brand new Awolk record is dropping in 2021! Dubbed "Blissfully Waiting", this full length is a collection on tunes written over the Covid-19 lockdown. Awolk was eager to stay active over 2020, playing shows in his home province when and where he could.
Awolk is no stranger to touring. With at least 100 dates across Canada since the record dropped, including supporting Kellie Loder, The Hypochondriacs, and a 20 date national acoustic tour dubbed, “Awolk Across Canada”.
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.
