A passionate singer/songwriter and soulful performer, Leela Gilday has a voice that comes straight
from the heart. Confessing her stories to her audiences with a gutsy voice and open stage presence,
Gilday weaves her experiences as a northerner, a member of the Dene nation, and a traveler into a
beautiful world that transports the listener.
With four full-length recordings and a long touring history, Gilday has numerous awards to her
credit, including a Juno, two Western Canadian Music Awards, Aboriginal Female
Entertainer of the Year to name a few. Above all, she seeks connection with her audiences through music, and with each record brings more unique stories to the world. Whether it’s an
anthem for the oppressed, or an upbeat song about mortality, she infuses her songs with a sense of
humour as well as a sense of social justice, and an ironic appreciation of human folly.
Based out of Yellowknife, NT, Leela has toured festivals and concert halls with her four-piece
band through every province and territory in Canada. She has also played internationally in several
countries including Japan, US, Greenland, Denmark, and New Zealand. Her live shows, and many
appearances on television and radio have earned her an important place in the Aboriginal music
scene, as well as a loyal mainstream following.
Her latest record “Heart of the People” resonates with the heartbeat of the earth and the connection
we all have to it as human beings.
“Fresh, open and with a big, clear voice, she knocked our collective socks off.”- PATRICK
“Leela Gilday’s voice comes straight from the heart. It’s the voice of a winner; the song of a
warrior. That’s the call of Leela Gilday.” - DAVID NEWLAND, ROOTS MUSIC CANADA
