Homegrown Country with Mariya Stokes at the King Eddy

Alberta country artist Mariya Stokes is bringing her dynamic artistry and magnetic personality to the King Eddy stage for a free Homegrown Country show.

About Mariya Stokes

If Kacey Musgraves and Meghan Trainor had a country-soul love-child, the result would be Calgary-based country artist Mariya Stokes. Known for her quick wit, quirky sense of humour, and signature retro style, Country Music Alberta’s two-time reigning Female Artist of the Year is in music for the long haul. Growing up in Stavely, Alberta, an hour south of Calgary, Stokes spent time in her parents’ small-town bar, and at eight years old, was sneaking in on Friday afternoons to sing with the local jam band. Now a seasoned performer, she has opened for Doc Walker, Jocelyn Alice, and Jann Arden and was one of three artists selected to work with 19-time CCMA winner Terri Clark at National Music Centre’s RBC Master in Residence program in 2019. In addition, Stokes’ was the 2019 runner-up in Project WILD, a country-focused artist development program run by WILD 95.3 FM (Calgary) and Alberta Music. With confident, expressive vocals and gritty steel guitar, her current single, “Break My Heart,” is a laid-back, pop-country feminist anthem. Produced by Juno Award-winners Spencer Cheyne and Justin Kudding and dripping with attitude, Stokes’ fourth single solidifies her commitment to empowering women and telling their stories.
