Meet Del Suelo
Author + Musician
Del Suelo is a Saskatchewan based artist that makes art combining writing and music. In 2016 he released a 10 chapter/10 song combination project titled I Am Free which received an honourable mention at the Tidewater Independent Book Awards and is also being translated into German.
Musically, he performs genre-bending, soul-driven tunes that serve as a soundtrack to the novels he writes. The music is rich in emotion, varying from fun to serious. The music blends rock-pop catchiness with anything from funk to punk, steeped in the jazz tradition of improvisation and spontaneity.
Del Suelo frequently collaborates with acts such as the Andino Suns and The Dead South. He has toured all over Canada and Europe, playing notable festivals such as The Regina Folk Fest (Regina SK), Coldsnap Festival, (Prince George BC), Radio Eins Parkfest (Berlin, Germany) Festival Traditions du Monde (Sherbrooke QC), Festival du Voyageur (Winnipeg, MB) and SXSW (Austin TX) and Tonder Festival (Tonder, Denmark) . Del also teaches songwriting workshops and classes, and hosts a monthly “Theory Jam” for guitarists of all levels.
