T. Nile is a Canadian performing songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist who mixes genres; gritty western guitars, soulful harmonies, future synth arpeggios, dark beats, and electro-pop accents. This is quite a long way from her early days in a Galiano Island cabin on the wild coast of British Columbia, Canada,
“Working with both acoustic and electronic instruments gives me a sense of unlimited musical possibility” she says, comparing the capabilities to a field of wildflowers versus a vase of flowers. On her upcoming release 'Beachfires' it’s a sentiment you’ll hear come alive throughout the album.
Nile was groomed for an unconventional life. Her father performed as 'Dan The Man, The One Man Band', following in the footsteps of his inspiration and mentor Jesse Fuller, a street performer turned influential blues musician who famously penned 'San Francisco Bay Blues' and inspired Bob Dylan to pick up the harmonica. From the age of six until her teenage years Nile accompanied her father as they toured the West Coast and Australia in an RV.
T. Nile has toured North America and Europe, won awards, including Best New/Emerging Artist at the Canadian Folk Music Awards and played major festivals. She has released three albums and two EPs. In 2018, she spent a good part of the year writing and recording 'Beachfires' which debuts in April 2019.
What's Been Said:

“Like her music, T. Nile is a radiant and multi-layered complexity; inspiring and inspired; accessible yet luminous; leaving you wanting more.” - Jeffrey Morgan, Creem
