JUNO Nominated, Canadian Folk Music Award Winning duo, Burnstick, Release Poignant New Single “Hands Tied” Ahead of Sophomore Album 

For over a decade, JUNO nominated Folk duo, Burnstick, have been crafting deeply resonant songs that inspire their audience to feel. Their musical craftsmanship, touching lyrics, and distinctly harmonic vocal performance have become a celebrated trademark of the Manitoba based, husband and wife duo, enveloping listeners in their emotionally gripping melodies and impactful storytelling. Their JUNO nominated debut album, Kîyânaw, was released in 2019, from which their song, “Some Kind of Hell” took home the Canadian Folk Music Award for Single of the Year, while also receiving nominations from the Western Canadian Music Awards, and Summer Solstice Indigenous Music Awards in both 2020 and 2021. Nadia and Jason Burnstick have composed scores for film and television, including multiple songs for character Niizh in the celebrated Canadian TV Drama “Little Bird”, the 2023 “INDSPIRE Awards”, while Jason also scored “The Legacy of The Residential School System 2020” for Parks Canada among numerous others. Burnstick’s music has been featured across Canada on SiriusXM, CBC, CTV Morning Live, and NCI FM. This year, the pair released the first single, “Closer”, from their upcoming sophomore album due out this May to rave reviews across the Country. Following the success of their last single, Burnstick has just released “Hands Tied”, a poignant and cinematic song emphasizing the importance of cherishing moments with loved ones amidst life’s turmoil and chaos.

Burnstick recorded “Hands Tied” at two separate recording studios in Manitoba – Winnipeg’s No Fun Club studio and Kîyânaw studio in St. Claude. Co-written by the duo, Nadia is credited with performing both vocals and acoustic guitar on the song. Jason performed six instruments on the track, including his signature Weissenborn lap slide guitar, while Daniel Roy (Sierra Noble) provided drums & percussion, and Bruce Jacobs (Rankin Family, Lennie Gallant) played bass.
