From above the Arctic Circle, award-winning folk artist Abe Drennan writes songs that deliver fresh, lively reflections on life. His smooth vocals and raw acoustic performance capture life’s complex moments and makes them powerfully relatable. His songs presents a palatable, sacred blend of simple truths that make the harsh realities of the present seem hopeful. Influenced by James Taylor and Bob Dylan his songs are a reminder of the common ground we all walk. Abe has opened for Jim Byrnes, Alex Cuba, and Leela Gilday. He recorded his second album, "The Igloo Sessions"(2019) in the iconic Igloo Church in Inuvik and has performed at the Great Northern Arts Festival (Summer 2015/2021), Folk on the Rocks (Summer 2021) and showcased at the NWT Music Awards (Fall 2022). He is currently working with Bell Rock Recording in Fort Smith and will be releasing a new EP in winter 2023. He was recently nominated for the Music Video Excellence Award and won the Fan’s Choice Award at the inaugural NWT Music Awards in Yellowknife. Drennan’s forthcoming single, Unknown Road (October 2022) blends the best of classic folk with a contemporary flavor that washes over like a fresh wave on a rocky shore.
