Plaid People Music is a performing artist agency based in Western Canada.
We are proud to work with these distinguished Canadian artists:
Mark Perry is one of Canada’s great bard’s, known and loved for his socially-narrative, good-humoured and thought-provoking songs. He sweeps you up in animated tales of real characters and events, getting introspective or paying homage to the tenacity of towns and folks when mills are closing, rivers are rising, and when buying the family car means trading “two cords of wood and 24 beer”. Set to release his 13th album ‘Northwest’ in Fall 2021, Mark is recognized far and wide as a popular storyteller of time & place. He draws us in and connects us from coast to coast.
With ancestral roots in the Lheidli T’enneh, Cree and Secwépemc Nations, BC Singer/Songwriter Kym Gouchie is a force, fostering change through her music and art. She embraces audiences while imparting messages and truths in songs that need to be heard. Kym’s inspirational lyrics, powerful voice, crisp acoustic guitar and traditional hand drum are supported by harmonizing accompanists into genuine and heartfelt performances that have a profound and positive impact on their audience.

RvZ is a folk-roots-rock warrior known for her “straight from the heart, gutsy, and intimate” songs that “give voice to thunder and fire the hearts” of all who join her in a passionate calling to protect mother earth. Her “punishing slide guitar“ has her listed as “one of Canada’s best slide guitarists” by musician Randy Bachman.
Mip is a multi-instrumentalist roots-rocker who writes genre-smashing songs — clever, understated lyrics and a mix of stripped-down rock n roll + folk + a hint of everything in between. “Well-rounded…smart music that’s weird in all the right ways,” Mip is a dynamic presence, hailed by loyal fans as Toronto’s best kept secret, and a vivacious musical force to be reckoned with.

I recognize with respect and gratitude that, in Smithers, the land on which I live, work and play is the unceded traditional territory of the Gidimt’en Clan and the Wet’suwet’en people.
