Event Details

Etienne Siew’s album Chasing Dreams, is a 12 song catalogue of acoustic stories, outlining the winding, challenging and rewarding path of a singer-songwriter. During the wake of the pandemic, when live performance ground to a halt, Etienne took his guitar and note pad to various forests and rivers throughout Vancouver and spent many months in reflection. Within the silence, he found an outpouring of inspiration as he reflected on the resilience it takes to be an artist, the challenges and messages of hope, growing up with a diverse cultural background, and the connection we have with our environment. Many of the songs will be supported by various visual pieces, to immerse the audience in the album and to encourage reflection of one’s own experiences with the themes.

Etienne Siew crafts his music from the beauty of the West Coast and the forests of B.C, where he often spends his time fishing, hiking or canoeing. His true-life experiences and imaginative tales are woven into songs that will guide you through the themes of love, loss and triumph over adversity, that he explores in his original work. Whether he is performing in a soft seated theatre, a festival stage or a campfire, his blend of warm tones, dynamic melodies, and powerful vocals will speak to your heart and make you feel as though you are walking right beside him in his stories.
