Dana Sipos - Noir Folk Melodic Roots Live Act in Yellowknife

Dana Sipos Short Info

Spending her formative years in the Canadian subarctic city of Yellowknife, Dana Sipos’ songwriting is infused with a sense of surrealism best influenced by the supernatural experiences of Canada’s high country. A true songsmith, Sipos creates nuanced songs that are hauntingly hopeful and captivatingly calm, yet filled with a wild wind.

With an unconventional travelling style, Sipos has spent the last few years touring by tall ship and bicycle, canoe and train and has toured across Canada and the US. As a musician-in-residence at the renowned Banff Centre in the Canadian Rockies, she spent a few months collaborating with an impressive array of international musicians before teaming up with Yukon producer Jordy Walker (Tanya Tagaq) to bring her new album to life. Roll Up the Night Sky was recorded in the home studio of Richard Reed Parry of Arcade Fire over a cold Montreal winter and released on Nashville indie-label Muddy Roots Music Recordings. The album has been nominated for a 2015 Canadian Folk Music Awards in the Pushing the Boundaries category, celebrating innovation in creating new folk sounds.
