S.K. Wellington

Story

S.K. Wellington is a Calgary-based singer/songwriter that has been writing and performing music for over a decade. Her debut solo EP “Where the Earth Meets the Sea” was released September 2018 and was met with positive reviews from her hometown to the UK. After leading the band “The Wellington Folk” for 8 years, S.K. took a departure in 2018 and decided to move forward as a solo act. Sitting in the “perfect pocket of folk, pop, indie, and rock”, S.K.’s song offerings are reflective, poignant, poetic, and hopeful. The songwriting has been said to be a “Fleetwood Mac meets Deathcab for Cutie” feel. S.K.’s songs have made Regional Top Ten in the CBC Searchlight competition four times (2014-2016, 2019). Her music has been featured on CBC, X92.9, and CJSW. S.K. can be seen performing solo, or as a four or five piece band. The performances are equal parts refreshing, energizing, and grounding. Wellington was nominated for the “2019 folk recording of the year” at the YYC Music Awards.
