Trevor Tchir [cheer] unites the sounds and images of Canada’s rural and urban spaces. Over the past eighteen years based in Edmonton, Ottawa, and now Sault Ste. Marie, he has played his original songs to audiences across the country. Tchir's music tells stories of the people who work and love in its pulsing cities and austere hinterlands. In reviewer Mary Christa O’Keefe’s words, "Tchir's lyrics are populated with characters who are both universal and intimate…In Tchir's hands place, time and relationships become characters, too, with their own agendas and idiosyncrasies...His allegiance is to the time-honoured art of evoking emotion through storytelling."
