Mi'kmaw musician and composer Paul Pike, from Corner Brook, Newfoundland. Paul is the singer/songwriter for the award winning contemporary First Nations rock band Medicine Dream. Medicine Dream released three recordings internationally, two with canyon records and one independently. Pike lived in Alaska for 25 years before returning home in 2015 to be close to his family, friends and the land he is so much a part of. Paul’s newest release “Echoes of Our Ancestors” is the first Native American Flute album to ever be released from NL. It’s mostly instrumental compositions are meditative and soul soothing, the sound is profound on all musical levels. Guaranteed to be a favourite for 2022.
Paul is also a Cultural Outreach Officer with Qalipu First Nation, where he shares his love for Mi’kmaw culture, history and music with all ages of diverse communities. Music remains his first love, and helping other Musicians compose their own Music, sharing the ongoing story of the Ktaqmkuk Mi’kmaw People. This is at the core of Paul’s passion to create and perform.
