Jeremy Dutcher’s first words after learning he’d won the Polaris Music Prize were yelled out in his traditional Wolastoq language.
“Psiw-te npomawsuwinuwok, kiluwaw yut! All of my people, this is for you!”
“Canada, you are in the midst of an Indigenous renaissance. Are you ready to hear the truths that need to be told? Are you ready to see the things that need to be seen?”

Jeremy Dutcher is a classically trained operatic tenor and composer who takes every opportunity to blend his Wolastoq First Nation roots into the music he creates, blending distinct musical aesthetics that shape-shift between classical, traditional, and pop to form something entirely new. Dutcher’s debut release, Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa, involves the rearrangement of early 1900s wax cylinder field recordings from his community.
