As an artist of Trinidadian, Guyanese and British ancestry, Etienne Siew brings his love for storytelling and songwriting to the diverse audience at Culture Days. Growing up as a fisherman and nature lover, His blues and folk influenced music speak to people who feel a strong connection to the natural beauty of the West Coast. The compassionate messages in his songs speak of vulnerability as a male, and advocate for the expression of love, heartbreak, romance, and finding one’s self on life's journey. His blend of warm tones, dynamic melodies and powerful vocals will speak to your heart and make you feel as though you are walking right beside him in his stories.


Etienne Siew

Since I was a child I realized how important music and stories were to bring colour into the world and transport people to a place of escape, inspiration and healing. I noticed early on in my career, while performing at cafes, that my music had the ability to move people, inspire them and begin to heal them if they were going through a hardship in their life. My vision is that the songs that I write, about my own personal experiences or those around me, will speak to the hearts of my audience, shedding light on topics and feelings that some people have a hard time expressing. I hope to make the world a more understandable and brighter place for people, and to someday share my stories on a global scale. This is my vision that I would like to bring to life through music
