MID: Info Session for Indigenous Artists
We invite New Brunswick Indigenous artists to join Tristan Grant (Wolfcastle) and Nicole Léger (MID Program Officer) to learn more about funding available for New Brunswick artists and the application process.
Nicole joined the Music NB team in 2017 as the Music Industry Development (MID) Program Officer. She also brings over a decade of experience in event and festival coordination, communications and marketing, stage and artist management, as well as concert production and logistics.
Originally from Moncton, Nicole made the move to the West Coast in 2007 where she worked for the artist management company Divine Industries with Allen Moy (54-40, Barney Bentall, John Mann, Lee Harvey Osmond, etc). Some of the events under her belt include the Whistler Film Festival, Crankworx Bike Festival, the World Ski & Snowboard Festival, Jazz On The Mountain Festivals, the Surrey Fusion Festival, the New Zealand Music Awards, le Congrès Mondial Acadien, and more.
Canadian rapper Wolf Castle came on the scene with a contagious energy and versatile rap flow reminiscent of old school hip-hop combined with a modern pop oriented flavor. His music carries a powerful energy covering topics about love, empowerment, having a good time and going against the odds. His lyrics have been described as catchy and confessional, often connected to his indigenous roots and experience being raised on an indigenous reserve. A knucklehead with an internet connection, Wolf Castle likes to keep listeners on their toes and continue delivering a fresh perspective.
