Katie Tupper

September 14

Beneath the painted hues and infinite prairie skies of Saskatoon – a city in the heart of Canada – lies a soulful, creative spirit that proves there’s much more to the so-called ‘fly-over states’ than grassland and grain silos. Katie Tupper embodies that spirit and is determined to show there’s an entire world of boundary-pushing, genre-defying artists at work within the often overlooked region. Tupper’s two EPs, ‘Towards The End’ and ‘Where To Find Me’, received glowing acclaim from tastemakers like Zane Lowe and indie music press like Ones To Watch, Exclaim, Under The Radar, and FLOOD Magazine. She appeared on eTalk and recorded a filmed television performance for CBC. Tupper was one of three participants selected to be part of the 2023 Allan Slaight JUNO Master Class, been nominated for a JUNO Award, and won several Western Canadian Music Awards, including BreakOut Artist of the Year in 2023.
