MATCITIM IN OUR SAY MAGAZINE FEATURE

BIOGRAPHY

Tim Ruperthouse a.k.a MATCITIM,  born in july 6, 1982.  He’s an Algonquin/Cree from Pikogan, Canada.  He started singing at age of 8 years old but never in front of anyone, he was a shy person, later at age of 16 years old, he started to play guitar then got more comfortable to play and sing in front of people.  He then joined a band when he was 19 years old, learned experience as then band slowly broke up after 5 years together.   “It was fun at first then the fun was over, I just couldn’t stand the leader and the things he’s done any longer.”

Couple of years later he decided to make his own songs by himself.  He learned bass and drums to get things done “I got a lot to show to the world, I want to make something new with our culture and mix it up with today’s music and I hope one day, I’ll get to hire a traditional drum group to join me on my journey”.  The songs I write talks about Rez problemS and Rez humour  “In my Rez, the things I’ve lived was so unfair and the songs I’ve wrote talks about what I’ve been through and I hope that it helps people and of course I also write songs about our identity and the things that makes us laughs.”

His first EP (ma-dji-tim) released in 2022 produced with Simon Walls was made during the confinement “the producer wanted to make new songs, so I had to compose as we where going further for the EP wich was very challenging for me”

His first single produced by himself released in summer 2022, song named “215” dedicated to the childrens found in residential schools “it affected me so much when I heard about it, I felt guilty questioning my father with his stories that he told me in my younger age, for a long time he stop sharing till they found the childrens, I hope this song helps people heal.”

His second single produced by himself, song name “cash money” was released at the end of summer 2022,  “I’ve worked on that song since 2020, the lyrics is about what people are ready to do for money, is a bit darker then any other songs I’ve wrote so far, I’ve added some traditional singing on that one.”  MATCITIM is currently working on his album that will include blues/rock/heavy metal and will include covers like “Seek & Destroy – Metallica”, “My My Hey Hey – Neil Young”,  “Seven Nation Army – The White Stripes,” you can listen to those covers in his Youtube channel as well.

LOW BUDGET ROCK STAR IN OUR SAY MAGAZINE FEATURE

LOW BUDGET ROCK STAR IN OUR SAY MAGAZINE FEATURE

BIOGRAPHY

A new sound has risen out of the northern realms of Manitoba thanks to Low Budget Rock Star.  Prophets of our time. Saints from the north.  True gritty, silly, intimate, & flavorful.  An arena pop rock sound that howls through the wind with the strength of a JCM 800 (4)(12) Marshall stacked cabinet speaking volumes.  This small but mighty three-piece band harnesses a big sound that fights endlessly to breathe life into a wary form of art, rock n roll. 

Critics and peers in the music industry are praising the catalog of Low Budget Rock Star who are nurturing their new release, More Than Ever, available now.  They also released ‘Sunglasses’ early in 2022 with the song charting in the top ten on the Indigenous Music Countdown being heard around the world via Sirius XM Satellite Radio!  In 2019, the band released their self-titled debut single announcing their arrival to the world bringing with them a new philosophy on life. 

The band is made up of all the right elements.  Musicians who have stood the tests of time living their lives on the front lines saving rock n roll.  The spirit of music has led Low Budget Rock Star to a cross roads and a need for growth.  To grow out of the confines of comfort & isolation by reaching higher than they ever have before.  The songs they have compiled are their very best. They have an over flowing well of creativity thanks to the Great Spirit. They have the right team and fan base behind them.  The only thing missing is you!  Are you ready to save rock n roll?  Are you up for it?

Dustin Harder

BIOGRAPHY

Winnipeg, Manitoba’s Dustin Harder is a proud, intrepid Métis singer/songwriter with strong Manitoba roots who fearlessly chases his dreams with songs that reflect his adventures. Dustin’s hard-hitting guitar riffs of rockin’ prairie soul roots, blues and smooth vocals are a hallmark of this artist’s singular musical style. Dustin, who is a self-taught artist, got into music through exposure at a young age — being around instruments, such as guitars, that were his uncle’s and grandfather’s, who were both accomplished players. They noticed his affinity for the guitar and taught him chords, songs and riffs. They encouraged him to practice with the lights out to enhance his musical ear.

When Dustin was 19 he hitchhiked and busked his way to the Yukon on a mission for gold that his grandfather had dreamed of many years prior. He found gold but he also managed to find his musical soul through busking, and as a hired live performer he began to pursue his dream of becoming a recording/performing artist and songwriter. Along with the adventures of living life on the road, Dustin struggled with drug and alcohol abuse, wrong relationships and, finally, with the law. After what felt like rock-bottom Dustin emerged with rich material for an album, which was released as “Searchin’ for a River.” That album earned him a 2009 Aboriginal People’s Choice Music Award (APCMA) with the (now defunct) Dusty Roads Band. Dustin’s song, “Killin’ Time,” reached #2 on the National Aboriginal Music Countdown (now Indigenous Music Countdown) in 2010.

His song, “Hold Me Tight, I Love You,” reached #1 on the Countdown in 2010. The Indigenous Music Countdown spotlights today’s best new Indigenous music, airing worldwide on Soundcloud, Sirius XM and 12 Canada-wide radio stations, including NCI FM. A self-titled album, “Dustin Harder’s Prairie Soul,” was released in 2016. The album, which is a compilation of original songs that were recorded in various studios in Winnipeg, reflects Dustin’s prairie roots and his travels throughout northern and western Canada. His “Hitting the Road Harder Tour,” a 43-date tour of western and northern Canada, took place in the fall/winter 2017. Today, Dustin continues to perform and record under the name Prairie Soul and has recently released 2 songs titled “Voices Travel the Wind”(Hey Na Na Na Nay) And – “Everyday I” on the Birdsong New Music Foundation double compilation album featuring 12 artists and 21 songs.

Artist Statement

Freedoms End is a spokesman for Native and non Native America.  He has four things that weigh heavy on his mind constantly.  These four things are the Doctrine of Discovery, oppression, suppression and repression and all apply to Indigenous cultures worldwide.   His disposition is to be forever at the End of the Trail.  Exactly how he got into that situation used to be a mystery and was left up to the viewer to come to their own conclusions. 

Freedoms End wants the world to know he wouldn’t exist if it were not for the Doctrine of Discovery ( 1452-1493) and the fact that the Doctrine of Discovery is the cornerstone of Federal Indian Law.  It is still used by the USA in the International Court of Law. We cannot have the racist Doctrine of Discovery without my re-contextualized victim, Freedoms End.  They are inseparable.  We are all End of the Trail Indians.  This becomes obvious as the billionaires and their corporations seek to privatize, plunder and terminate American Freedom out of existence.

Christopher Sweet – Ho-Chunk/Ojibwe
