During these turbulent times of seemingly endless natural disasters, terrorist attacks, and political and social unrest, it’s a breath of fresh air to hear the comforting sounds of Wanda Gronhovd. Throughout her songs she masterfully evokes the full spectrum of human emotion: love, loss, doubt, heartbreak, sorrow, hope, and strength. Combining elements of folk, pop, and soul she writes and performs music that is the perfect soundtrack for sitting at a coffee shop, enjoying a music festival, or just curling up on the couch with a glass of wine. If you’re a fan of Sarah McLachlan, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, or Laura Marling then the music of Wanda Gronhovd will make your ears and heart happy.
Gifted with a warm, yet powerful voice, Wanda Gronhovd got the music bug early in life with the songs she heard at church in her hometown of Shaunavon, Saskatchewan. After moving to Montreal in the ‘90s she began dabbling in songwriting and made her first performance at a house concert in 1997. However, she put music on the backburner to focus on family and a nursing career until she moved back home to Saskatchewan a few years ago. Now based out of Regina, Gronhovd got down to business and released her well-received debut album Awakening in 2014.
