Wayne Levesque singer songwriter

Due to be released in Fall 2022, Wayne is building a theme album that reflects his connection to nature and back country emotions and experiences over a 40 year tenure as a fisheries worker in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. And it’s called CREEKWALKER.

The project also addresses Wayne’s unique connection to his Ojibwe ancestry. Raised far from the Michipicoten Reservation near WaWa Ontario, there was little discussion or acknowledgement of the family background. Circumstance revealed some answers soon into his recovery and he now acknowledges his ancestry proudly.

“My spirit was dormant, my heart was full of something I couldn’t understand. When I first heard the tone and kindness of the language, I was enlightened”.

“Creekwalker” is being produced by prominent music personality Doug Cox. A release date has not been set but will likely the seen in the fall of 2022. There is a definite mood to the project and performances from some very high profile musicians, more of a roots feel than my first album “Clouds”, but you will recognize the continuity.

Wayne Levesque

Wayne has quite the story to share.  In 2000, Wayne was involved in a serious mill accident wherein his right hand was severed at the wrist in a “mill” accident. With a miraculous turn of events that would challenge the strongest of souls, his hand was reattached and he hit the long road of recovery. As a lifelong guitarist, there was always the ominous question : would he play guitar again? “I needed the music back”. It was due to his intense focus that he was playing bass in a local band six months after the injury. From that point forward, he dove into writing again.

He’s a songwriter, a poet and self-professet “saddest of romantics”. His favourite place is in the creating of song.

Fast forward to this point in time and he has overcome more than the injury. “Recovering from a lifetime of alcohol and drug addiction is by far my biggest accomplishment. For five years now, I’ve been waking up in the morning with a smile I’m grateful. So grateful to be in control of my thoughts and feelings. The fog has lifted and it’s all new, a reset…I now have a gift I need to share”.

The story of his accident, recovery and current situation was featured on the AMI documentary series “The Awakeners” released in November 2021. The series features how indigenous people find art as a path to recovery.
