The North Sound is cold like a Saskatchewan winter. It's humid as a summer day in the streets of Montreal. As unpredictable as the weather in a singular Calgary day. The North Sound is ever-changing with the world around us, encompassing each and every pivotal moment, from road trips as a kid to finding your way as an adult. It's feeling lost but knowing you're loved. Formed by Forrest Eaglespeaker in 2014 as a way to share his stories, The North Sound is an attempt at trying to close the gap reflected in the vast space of the open Canadian landscape.

Forrest Eaglespeaker is a Blackfoot/Cree/French singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and storyteller from Calgary, Alberta residing in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He is the heartbeat of Canadian Roots-Rock band The North Sound. With a no holds barred approach to songwriting, Forrest’s lyrics span across haunting metaphors from everyday experiences to personal realities. His most recent release “Between The Ditches”, released October 30th 2018, reached number 1 on Saskatchewan MBC Radio, topped the Indigenous Music Countdown and features a music video where Forrest pays homage to his roots as an indigenous person, to his second home in Saskatchewan and to his family. In keeping true to the traditions from his home territory treaty 7, Forrest becomes a storyteller through his lyrics and musical compositions. Coming from a broken home in a rough neighbourhood that was filled with alcohol and drug abuse, Forrest is always seeking and creating opportunities to have a positive impact on the community. He has passionately dedicated his life to working with vulnerable populations and at-risk youth in both Saskatchewan and Alberta. As Forrest searches for ways to bring communities together and support the youth voice, he continues to work on his craft as a musician and getting his own voice heard with the hopes of one day being able to dedicate all of his time to his 2 biggest passions; youth and music.

  • Heavy Heart

    Heavy Heart is the third and final single off of our upcoming record As the Stars Explode, set to drop October 23rd, 2020. The intent behind the song is to give encouragement to people living with visible and invisible disabilities. Sometimes getting out of bed is the hardest part of the day. Sometimes its brushing your teeth or eating. The point is that there is no cheering section for these types of things. I want this song to be that cheering section!
