With a swirling mix of indie, soul, and electronic sounds and pulse-quickening fingerpicking, his music featured on his 2023 EP Here and Now and his 2022 debut LP Watin is both hypnotic and melodious.

He is the first Indigenous artist to hit Number 1 on Mediabase Canada’s Alternative Rock chart.He has been short-listed for the 2023 Polaris Prize and performed close to 300 shows on major stages, festivals, and venues across Canada and globally.
