Her solo album Someday We’ll Be Together was named RPM: Indigenous Music Culture’s “10 Most Influential Indigenous Album’s of 2011” and her video for I Lost My Shadow (dir. by Nanobah Becker) won “Best Music Video” at imagineNative 2011. Canadian Folk Award nominee, singer/songwriter Kristi Lane Sinclair (Haida/Cree) was raised on grunge and classical guitar in the backwaters of British Columbia. Kristi’s debut album, ‘I Love You’ melds hard edged smokey vocals, doleful cello and whimsical guitar lines.
