John Muirhead

"Incredible potential...already crafting better lyrics than some of mainstream music’s biggest names." - Canadian Beats

From fingerstyle folk confessionals to rowdy singalong jams, London, ON based folk-rocker John Muirhead will warm your heart, then break it too. With spirit and storytelling at the heart of his music, John would fit snugly between Dallas Green and Leonard Cohen at a late night Canadian campfire. John's dynamic performances have taken him across Canada, sharing songs and leading singalongs in living rooms, theatres, trains, and folk festival stages.

In 2016 John released his debut EP Yesterday's Smile and was named a top ten finalist in the Canadian Songwriting Competition for his song “The Space Between Stars”. 2017 included a summer tour, multiple festival performances, and most notably, a nomination for "Young Performer of the Year" at the Canadian Folk Music Awards in November.

John's second EP, Foundational, was released in June 2018. The lead single, "Passenger's Side" premiered on CBC London and was met with high praise from critics. The EP was followed up with a tour of Eastern Canada through the VIA Rail Artist on Board Program, as well as performances at The Winnipeg Folk Festival and Home County Music and Art Festival.
