Michael Archibald

Based In: Timmins, ON, Canada

A musician with a passion for music and an accomplished guitarist and singer. Born on Moose Factory Island, Mushkegowuk Territory in 1975, Michael Archibald (Cree) became interested in music in his early pre‐teen years. In the early 90’s, Michael formed a rock band with friends, but after many changes in band mates and their own lives, writing music became Michael’s only way of sharing his experiences and thoughts. After years of playing cover songs, Michael’s songwriting became a testament of his Journey through stages of his life, an inclusive expression of being true to himself. The lyrics come back in his music, as he unfolds a story in each of his songs leading the listener through his healing journey and life experiences.
