Six Nations artist Logan Staats will be making his BCMF debut this summer

Bella Coola Music Festival presents Logan Staats

Touring with the likes of Derek Miller, Jack DeKyzer, and Leonard Sumner, Logan Staats is quickly becoming one to watch.

  • Apr. 6, 2015 9:00 a.m.

Born and raised in the small ghost town of Brantford, the young multi-instrumentalist started writing and performing music in his early teens. Once in a blue moon an artist emerges on the scene as if fully formed. Staats voice is haunting and distinct, immediate in its character, and his songs feel like they truly belong to the artist.

In addition to his solo gigs, Six Nations artist Staats is also the lead singer of Ghost Town Orchestra, who are much loved in his hometown and won the Aboriginal People’s Choice Award for Best Rock CD in 2014. He’s recently performed at the Canada Games in Prince George, South by Southwest Festival, and is scheduled for the PanAm Games this summer.

A product of passion, compulsion, and musical commitment, armed with his guitar and harmonica he has played frequent live shows in bars and venues with a level of self-possession, sadness and joy that animates his performance. There’s an aura of inevitability that surrounds the emergence of such artists, and the Festival is excited to welcome Logan Staats this summer.
