Featuring a Live Performance by Logan Staats

Mohawk folk and soul musician Logan Staats began as a diamond in the rough on the streets of Brantford, Ontario. He played the local circuit for years before his 2015 debut release ‘Goodbye Goldia’, an unvarnished yet hard hitting folk album. He went on to win CTV’s‘The Launch’ in 2018, gaining commercialsuccess and touring across North America and Europe. But travelling the world can really open your eyes to what’s going on right at home, and the fight for indigenoussovereignty has become a focal point for Staatsin recent years. It all intermingles with the music; the passion, the rage, the love, and most of all the healing. He’s making roadtrippin’ music for those travelling ‘the red road’; a path towards reconnecting and relearning indigenous ways.
