FEATURED RECODING ARTIST:
ARTIST: Marcia Chum TRACK: Undone
Marcia Chum is a captivating, Indigenous folk-pop singer-songwriter with an earthy, resonant voice, who was born in Kapuskasing and raised in Timmins, in Northern Ontario. Of Cree heritage, Constance Lake First Nations, Chum is a traditional hand drum singer from the age of 14. She took up pop music when her father showed up at her place one day with a guitar, and told her to learn it. “It was a hard beginning, but I was eventually able to express myself in a way that I didn’t think I could. When you’re born with a purpose it will find you no matter what. I wasn’t planning on music but music found me,” says Chum.
Describing herself as ambitious, friendly, and confident, Chum has had her singing voice compared to that of Buffy Sainte-Marie and Stevie Nicks. The veracity of that comparison is evident in her current single and video, “Undone,” which examines the way bad timing can circumvent a possible romantic relationship, and how being hurt in love can prevent people from risking the prospect of loving again.
