The countdown is on to the 14th Annual Bella Coola Music Festival! This year you won’t want to miss the musical talents of Derek Miller (Toronto), headlining Saturday night, July 20, and Daniel Wesley (Vancouver) headlining Sunday night, July 21.
Derek Miller is a journeyman musician with eclectic taste and a knack for roots inflected rock. Born on the Six Nations of the Grand River, Mohawk Territory.
Miller became interested in music in his early teens, and by the late 90s had not only toured with iconic Canadian vocalist Buffy Sainte-Marie but had also garnered a Juno for both his debut album, ‘Music is the Medicine,’ and sophomore album ‘The Dirty Looks’ in 2008. Derek Miller is a dynamic performer, whether you catch him live or are listening to his studio albums.
Singer/guitarist Daniel Wesley and his band are an eclectic mix of alternative music, blending reggae, folk and rock. After recording the album ‘Sing & Dance’ in June of 2007, Vancouver’s popular CFOX radio debuted his first single “Ooo Ohh,” which became the Fox’s most requested song of 2007. Wesley just released his sixth CD, ‘Ocean Wide,’ this spring. Most recently, voters on CFOX Radio elected him as the most popular artist in Vancouver.
