Nicky Mehta, Photo Ken and Carole Morris

Nicky Mehta is an award-winning singer-songwriter whose solo career, and backup and ensemble work have made her a highly respected musician on the folk/roots scene. As a solo artist and founding member of the double Juno Award-winning, Billboard-charting trio
The Wailin’ Jennys, she has toured three continents over the last ten years, garnering critical acclaim and a devoted fan base.

Major Arts Grant Project:

Mehta will be writing an album of lullabies for people of all ages, inspired by the vast Manitoban landscape. She will explore ideas of human connectedness to landscape, highlighting the wisdom and comfort one gleans from recognizing oneself as part of the natural world. It will be an album of deceptively simple melodies with a gentle exploration of our place in the cosmos.
