David Morin

With his self-released debut album, Every Colour, out on Bombay Records, David Morin plays gigs around the world accompanied by a live band. Yet the humble neo-soul singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist still chooses to busk regularly on street corners in his hometown of Vancouver.

After all, that's where this 32-year old, who is of Metis Native American descent, honed his craft––and his social message. Like the man himself, David Morin's music is pure, authentic and from the heart. Self-taught and passionately committed to being a career artist, he's blessed with the ability to turn strangers into fans. That's why he earned his stripes the hard way, busking on Vancouver streets and singing to make a living. This guitar (and loop-pedal) virtuoso makes a solo performance sound like an entire band.

David Morin was awarded Urban Artist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards in 2016. 

Creative BC is proud to support David Morin as part of the BC Music Fund’s Careers of BC Artists Program.
