Toronto Indigenous Oji-Cree, singer-songwriter Aysanabee will be performing a Canadian-wide tour with Canadian musician and two-time award winner Dan Mangan. The Going Somewhere Tour takes place from Oct 20- Nov 14, 2023. Aysanabee will be performing for the first in his home city of Toronto at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. 

The Canadian-wide tour will start Oct. 19, in Kingston ON, and end Nov. 14, in St. John Newfoundland.

After a successful debut, Aysanabee has had multiple nominations and awards including a JUNO nomination for Contemporary Indigenous Group or Artist of the Year, and winner of the 2023 Jim Beam Indie Award.  Aysanabee is also the first Indigenous artist to hit Number 1 on Mediabase Canada's Alternative Rock chart.

Aysanabee blends elements of gospel, roots, soul and rock. Aysanabee recently released his EP Here and Now. where he discusses the cycle of a relationship and what he imagined his relationship was like when looking at it under a microscope, he talks about the ins and outs and struggles of maintaining any type of relationship on tour, and that despite being willing and prepared to travel behind the tour bus, he's grateful to Managan for making him feel a part of something.
