Bryden Gwiss

Bryden Gwiss was a performer on the powwow trail for a number of years, but he didn’t pursue a recording career before Round Dance & Beats. That album was recorded and mixed on Gwiss’ iPhone. His second release was also recorded on his phone, but mixed at Tribal Spirit Music in Quebec.

Of Ojibwe, Odawa, Potawatomi, Delaware, Oneida and Mi’kmaq ancestry, the title track of his newest cd–“The Forgotten T.R.U.T.H.: The. Real. Un. Told. History”–tells Bryden’s story about growing up on the Neyaashiinigmiing reserve, formerly Cape Croker in Bruce County, and tackles issues including residential schools and the Sixties Scoop.

The self-taught musician’s parents took him to powwow traditional gatherings and he began to learn dances. In fact, he danced at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics opening ceremonies. Later, he was inspired by his mother’s musical family, who live in Wiikwemkoong on Manitoulin Island
