Emerging Artist Award Winner 2009
Missy Knott is a 20-year-old aspiring artist breaking out of Peterborough, Ontario’s extraordinary music scene. Widely known for her soulful, angelic voice and her music genre diversity, Missy is on her way to the top. Alan Greyeyes, co-chair of Manito Ahbee Festival Inc says “Missy’s dope! She’s got the talent and image to do big things with her music”, after having spent a week with her in Gimli, Manitoba where she participated in the prestigious Aboriginal Music Program Camp.
After releasing her debut album, “For No Reason At All…” this year, Missy has found every reason to pursue her lifelong dream of entertaining the world with her complete package; a distinctive warmth in her voice, drawing a listener in, a ‘Miss Congeniality’ inward spirit, and beauty the eyes will long remember.
After winning the Peterborough Folk Festival’s Emerging Artist Award 2009 and getting into the top 20 in the Ontario Country Music Showdown, Missy Knott has now adopted a role in the Aboriginal Music Tour alongside Shy-Anne Hovorka, Shibastik aka Chris Sutherland as well as Nylin White, which started in Thunder Bay and cruised all over North Western Ontario promoting healthy lifestyles, Mother Earth and following your dreams. The tour is heard to be the next best thing and opportunity for youth across the country.
Having shared the stage with Brock Stonefish, Tomson Highway and Paty Cano, Sam Ferguson and Juno nominated Jason Burnstick, Missy is excited to share her music and voice with the world.
