Wayfie - s/t Canadian New

Over the past 8 years, Wayfie has been working with talented artists in Canada and
abroad - developing his career from the bedroom. At only 22 years of age, Wayfie is an
extraordinarily talented multi-instrumentalist, songwriter (winner of Music BC’s Canadian
Songwriting Challenge 2020), producer, and audio engineer.

It all started with nearly getting trapped in Paris during a global pandemic. “By the
time 2020 arrived, I no longer felt a sense of purpose doing what I had once claimed to love. I decided to finally stop, drop, and get lost across Europe with my girlfriend. It took getting stuck in hotel rooms for me to realize I wanted to share my story with the rest of the world.”
