“Kym Gouchie is such a force. She has the ability to instantly draw you into the center of her incredible songwriting with her soaring vocals. Her music provides an opportunity to heal and be together. The generous stories she shares transport you and transcend the physical. I cannot wait for the next time I get to experience her live again and join together in round dance.”

“Kym Gouchie is an artist who has the ability to momentarily make us feel that time can stand still. Performing with a combination of soulful expression, focused intent, integrity, and artistic depth, Gouchie embraces and holds audiences while imparting messages and truths in songs that need to be heard. Kym Gouchie is a force… As artistic director of the Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival I have witnessed Kym Gouchie mesmerize an audience and inspire fellow artists. Kym is a truly unique artist who seamlessly blends the contemporary with the traditional.”

This song is my tribute to the murdered and missing Indigenous Women and Girls. My hope is to create awareness while honouring the victim's families and communities along the Highway of Tears, a 700 km stretch of highway between Prince George & Prince Rupert in British Columbia, Canada.
May we never forget our lost and stolen sisters. May their families find justice. May their families find peace. May we never forget the thousands of Indigenous women, girls and men who are missing and who have been murdered. May their beauty live forever, in the hearts of you and me.
