“Aysanabee's voice holds a rainbow of emotion”- CBC Music
19 AUGUST 2022 (TORONTO, ON) – Aysanabee continues to build his story with “Nomads,” a new song that decisively heralds the artist’s arrival as one of the most compelling new voices in Canadian music. With its astonishing vocals and magnetic momentum, “Nomads” makes a powerful artistic statement and signals, in sentiment and sound, what’s yet to come.
For a song that confronts family history, mortality, and how to move forward through it all, Aysanabee’s song brings driving, building, and freeing forward motion as it points to the future. “Nomads” lifts and carries its heavy memories and breaks through, exploding in joyous unburdening even as it contends with a question we all must answer: “Where do we go from here?”
“Nomads” follows “We Were Here” as Aysanabee’s second new song out this summer. Full details on Aysanabee’s debut album coming soon.

Aysanabee’s voice introduces himself in a way that words cannot. Solemn and soaring, backed by a swirling blend of indie, soul and electronic soundscapes, mournful saxophone and pulse-quickening finger-picking, Aysanabee’s striking sound is equal parts hypnotic and melodic.
The Toronto-based songwriter made his entrance in 2021 with the jaw-dropping song “Ocean Breath.” The self-produced, self-released single quickly found a home with Ishkōdé Records, where Aysanabee became the new label’s first signing. In a whirlwind year, Aysanabee performed on major stages across the country, opened for Half Moon Run and July Talk, launched and curated an emerging Indigenous artist series in Toronto, and is currently readying his debut album, expected in 2022. Aysanabee is Oji-Cree, Sucker Clan of the Sandy Lake First Nation.
