A Mi’kmaw musician and recording engineer from Natoaganeg is making his mark on the Fredericton music scene after opening his own downtown recording studio.
Dylan Ward grew up in the community also known as Eel Ground First Nation, not far from Miramichi, where he was inspired to play music by his older brother and was later motivated to record his own music after watching local hip-hop artists.
“My friends that I grew up with were all into music and at one point we were all in a band together and it was just our thing to do,” Ward said. “When you’re a kid, there’s not really much to do up in Eel Ground.”
Ward’s keen interest in recording his own music, and the music of his friends, while in high school has now turned into a career.
