No newcomer to songwriting, Sandy Scofield is currently recording her sixth release Red Earth. Cree/Métis from Treaty One territory, she hails from many generations of singers and musicians on both sides of her family. She has travelled numerous places around the world performing and has won many awards for her work. Not only a performer, Scofield works as an educator, mentor, composer and sound designer supporting other Indigenous artists voices in theatre, dance and film. She sings traditionally in Cree having been mentored by many language speakers, song keepers and elders. She also holds an undergrad degree in music composition, which includes studying African music at the University of Ghana in west Africa. I live and work on the unceded traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
