Event DescriptionAlberta based Métis artist Kyle McKearney was born and raised in small-town northern BC, growing up immersed in country and bluegrass music.
He has chased his musical dream to Nashville, through Kentucky and back to Vancouver in a variety of genres and acts. In 2020, McKearney was restless and ready to start something new. He began posting YouTube videos of himself performing cover songs. It was the start of a creative reinvention, and two years later Kyle’s debut solo album Down-Home received the Canadian Folk Music Award for Contemporary Signer of the Year and a Canadian Country Music Association award nomination for Alternative Country Album of the Year.
McKearney also earned two Western Canadian Music Award nominations, was named a SiriusXM Top of the Country semi-finalist, placed second in Alberta Music’s Project Wild (for which he was awarded $75,000), shared stages with The Black Crowes, Kip Moore, Our Lady Peace and Dean Brody, all while racking up over one million global streams.
His follow up sophomore album “A Traveler's Lament” explores country-rock territory, for which he received the Canadian Country Music Award for Alternative Country Album of the Year, is shortlisted for a 2024 Grammy for Best Regional Roots Music Album and nominated for two 2024 Canadian Folk Music Awards.
