FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – February 15th, 2019 Adam Winn singer-songwriter will digitally release ‘A Song for the North’ as a tribute to the hard-working people of the North.
The new release ‘A Song for the North’ was inspired by Winn’s life living up North, “I wrote this as a proclamation, that this is a good place to be” said Winn, “The people up here are good people that will do a lot for our country, the oil and gas sector can be neglected and criticized and I wanted to write a song about being proud of being from up here and that we have a good life.”
Winn goes on to say, “I want to get this song out to the north, I know I wrote it about here, it will resonate with anyone that knows how to put in a good days work.”
Two upcoming performances will give people an opportunity to hear Winn live as he sings new songs and ‘A Song for the North’ just before the release date of the single.
- Wednesday, February 13th, 9:00 pm at Casey’s Pub
- Thursday, February 14th, 7 pm at Mighty Peace Brewing
Asking Winn what his favourite line in his song he replied, “In the Winter it gets cold but the suns still shining through. This is the place where I’ll grow old, it’s home”
Winn works as a firefighter in Fort St. John, the station started a charity in 2017 to help locals travel for medical treatment outside of FSJ. This helped Winn recognize the strength in this community as he saw how generous the community is as people rally and support each other. “We have a really strong sense of community, we stick together and support each other and I definitely appreciate that up here,” said Winn.
Winn was born and raised in Creston with a musical background and studied classical voice in College. Moving to Fort. St John in July 2008, Winn continued his musical journey by playing at church and open mic’s in the area performing more in the area in 2017.
Winn shares he did things a bit backwards being 33 years old, he had done a performance and was asked to do a radio showcase which inspired Winn to record some songs, this was the start for Winn’s music being shared with a broader platform. “I always wanted too, I have five kids and one on the way,” Winn goes on to share he did not pursue this when he was younger as life was busy with work.
Winn’s style can be described as folk/acoustic using lyrics that have a definite storytelling appeal to them. Winn is looking to releasing a new album in the spring with producer Ryan Mcallister.
