Accomplished artist and singer/songwriter Arthur Renwick is a storyteller who plays bottleneck slide on a Dobro and Cigar Box guitar. He has been performing his music for many years in festivals and venues across Canada and Europe.
His debut album, The Cigar Box Chronicles captures the experience of love, loss, liquor, hope, faith, birth and death while living in a small fishing village of Kitamaat B.C. where he was born and raised within the Haisla Nation. Many of Renwick's songs offer a bluesy swagger that beckons the swampy south, while others beckon the old country ghost of Hank Williams.; his music not only crosses roads with genres but, also with community.
Outside of touring the world with his art and music, Arthur divides his time living between Toronto and the Rama First Nations in Northern Ontario.
