The West End Cultural Centre will continue to require that patrons wear facemasks and show proof of vaccination for all events in the venue. We will continue to evaluate this policy as circumstances evolve.
Fontine crafts sanguine lyrics that tell of loves past and present. often using themes of nature to ground her songwriting. Her identity as a Nehiyaw Iskwew goes back to early memories of visiting the family farm on Cowessess First Nation reserve. Through songwriting, beading, and exploring the natural world, FONTINE is working to uncover the roots buried for years, and become a part of a wider community of songwriters.
Although Fontine is just beginning her journey as a solo artist, she has been singing and playing with local Winnipeg acts such as Boy Golden, Sol James and The Solutions for several years, and is a recognizable face in the local scene.
Fontine and Kris Ulrich (producer) have come together to create fresh indie pop sounds inspired by the likes of Lianne La Havas, Billie Marten, and Leif Vollebeck. Her first EP will have you dreaming of a simpler time and leave you wanting more music.
