Wayley & John Muirhead at LIVE! on Elgin
With Special Guest Dan Kelly
Wayley is here to leave you in better shape than he found you through an anthemic and unforgettable blend of full-voice, stomp-and-shout sing-alongs. The music is influenced by the people and places that shaped him – winter surfing on the Great Lakes, the Australian Coast and an unlikely mentorship at a vintage guitar shop, a creative stint in Montreal, writing sessions on Music Row, private gigs in the Hollywood Hills… All of these formative experiences would inform the sounds that put Wayley firmly in the company of giants like The Lumineers, Mumford and Sons, and other leading lights of the indie-folk movement.

From fingerpicked folk confessionals to upbeat singalongs, John's award-winning songs have touched audiences across Canada and beyond.theatres, moving trains, and folk festival stages across Canada, sharing stages with the likes of Joel Plaskett, Arkells, and Craig Cardiff.

Samson and Terra Lightfoot, John is creating meaningful roots-inspired music.
