Eden Fineday is a Canadian singer-songwriter who has been making music since 1993. A Cree Indian, Eden was born on the Sweetgrass Reserve in Saskatchewan, but was raised in Vancouver, BC.

Eden has played in many bands over the last fourteen years and collaborated on different projects. Her first band, the What-Nots, formed in 1995, in Santa Cruz, California, where Eden was living at the time. The What-Nots recorded two full-length albums, which were released on Fiver Records and Flying Harold Records, respectively. Eden shared songwriting and lead-singing duties with Phil Sherwood for this project. At the same time Eden played in an all-girl band called the Peggy Hills. The What-Nots broke up when Eden moved to France in 2000.

While in France, Eden got a phone call that would change her life – her brother had been found dead in his apartment at the age of 33. The news was devastating to Eden, and she turned to songwriting as a way of dealing with this very painful loss. During the rest of the year Eden spent in France, she wrote 13 songs that would form the basis of her next band upon her return to California, One Fine Day. Although One Fine Day did do a demo recording, nothing came of it, as Eden decided to move back to Vancouver in 2003 to be closer to her family.

Once back in Vancouver, Eden sought out an old friend whom she had met while living in Santa Cruz, Becca Stewart. With Becca and two other girls, Cc Rose and Megan Johnson, Eden formed a new band called Vancougar. In 2004, Vancougar won CiTR’s battle of the bands, SHiNDiG!, which enabled them to record their debut album Losin’ It!, released by Scratch records in 2005. Since then they have been signed to Mint Records and released their sophomore album, Canadian Tuxedo, which has been been very well received by critics and has received college airplay internationally.

In spite of having a very busy band in Vancougar, Eden has many songs that she has never recorded and that are not a good fit for Vancougar. She would like to begin a solo career, which would be the vehicle for these songs. She currently has 27 songs, which she is in the process of re-learning and organizing.

Eden won a grant from Music BC that allowed her to record a three-song demo. She is also in the process of demoing her songs on Garage Band, and continues to do that at home.
