September 14: Snotty Nose Rez Kids to perform at CityFolk in Ottawa
As regulars on the Canadian tour festival circuit this year, Snotty Nose Rez Kids have been one of the highlights for many concert goers this summer.
In September, the ward-winning duo head to Ottawa to take part in this year’s CityFolk Festival. SNRK will be performing on Saturday, Sept. 14 at from 10:15 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on the RavenLaw Stage.
Snotty Nose Rez Kids are the combined talents of Yung Trybez and Young D, hailing from the Haisla Nation, “The People of the Snow.” Above all else, SNRK blend trap beats with woven lyricism that challenges Indigenous stereotypes that paint their people as ill-mannered savages. Their music is best described as thought-provoking club bangers. And their live shows prove it. Audiences will dance and sweat, but they’ll leave with new knowledge.
Formed by Trybez and D in 2016, Snotty Nose Rez Kids was born out of a life-long friendship between the two emcees, growing up together, and deciding on music as their outlet for expression. SNRK dropped two albums in 2017, their debut self-titled LP and The Average Savage just nine months later. Snotty Nose Rez Kids set the stage for establishing the duo as hard-hitting lyricists tackling rich subject matter. Garnering fans from all over, SNRK began touring and proving they were not only talented musicians, but that they were true entertainers. The energy-filled performances created a quick demand for them in B.C. Their follow-up, The Average Savage, took them to new lengths.
In 2018, they toured Canada, US and Australia in support of the album. Their single, “Savages,” spent over 20 weeks on the Indigenous Music Countdown. The album landed them a nomination for Best Hip Hop Album at the Indigenous Music Awards, a win for Best Hip Hop Artist at the Western Canadian Music Awards, on the shortlist for the Polaris Music Prize, and a JUNO Award-nomination for Best Indigenous Music Album of the Year.
SNRK is currently promoting their latest project, TRAPLINE, which was released in May.
