Canadian Singer/Songwriter with some serious singin'
Sokyrka has been somewhat of a constant in the Canadian music scene.
Constantly in the darkness, where's that at? If you want her she'll
be at the bar. She was a product of the early years of reality TV,
coming in second place on Canadian Idol 2004. She released an album
of standards called "These Old Charms" and sold over 65,000
certifying a Gold Status. Her second album "Something is
Expected" she signed with MapleMusic to release an all original
pop album working with producers Mike Timmins, John Collins and David
Carswell. She produced a brilliant collection of traditional folk
songs on a Ukrainian Roots Album in 2010 in Montreal.
She has had the opportunity to open for Matt Dusk, Charlotte Cornfield, Miss Emily Brown, and David Gray. She was nominated for a Juno in 2006 and was the Youth Ambassador for Saskatchewan in it's centennial year.
In June of 2013, Sokyrka produced and released her fifth studio record "Prairie Winds" a collection of wispy, poetic melodies that were recorded, mixed and mastered in one week in Madrid. Sokyrka always wanted to make an album that was free from edits and this stellar, sonic beauty proves she has matured into a pretty decent songwriter and has learned a thing or two about producing as well. She toured the album from Victoria to Charlottetown in May/June of 2013 with fellow colleague Michelle Sabourin (Edmonton) and proved to her fans old and new that though it's been almost 11 years since a reality TV show found her in Saskatoon, Sokyrka is sticking around for the long haul.
