Jeremy Dutcher is an emerging Toronto-based composer and vocal artist. This classically trained operatic tenor takes every opportunity to blend his Wolastoq First Nation roots into the music he creates, blending distinct musical aesthetics that shape-shift between classical, contemporary, traditional, and jazz to form something entirely new. Dutcher’s forthcoming debut release, Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa (Maliseet Songs), involves the rearrangement of William Mechling’s Wax cylinder recordings from Maliseet communities in the early 1900s. With his new reimagined composition complete, Jeremy used NMC’s extensive collection to expand upon the project’s soundscapes.
