She is a natural performer with a soulful voice.  CBC has described Erika Fowler as one of the “10 young musicians you need to hear.” The Indie folk artist has performed at the Winnipeg Folk Festival and in 2016, received the grand prize at La Chicane Electrique, organized by 100Nons.


Erika has accomplished all this before even graduating high school. The grade 12 student at Fort Richmond Collegiate credits much of her strong musical start to joining the Pembina Trails Voices choir, PTV, when she was nine years old.


“I definitely owe a lot of my musical experiences to PTV and to FRC.  PTV gave me the tools to become a well-trained vocalist, and to be very professional,” shared Fowler. “Both choir and band have given me a lot of experiences and tools that I need to succeed in my future. I think if I hadn't been a part of these institutions I'd be a very different person, and likely wouldn't be pursuing music, at least not at a post-secondary level.”

Erika has been accepted into the Faculty of Music at the University of Manitoba. She describes being “insanely excited” to open the letter. The first thing she did was call her mother, father and then her best friend. The idea of pursuing her passion of music is beyond thrilling to the 17 year old.

“I love music. I do not know how else to say it. I think it is such an important art form - it is a universal language, a vital tool in learning and development, and, to me at least, one of the most important things in the world. Music allows people to express themselves in a way that nothing else can.”

While in university, Erika is interested in exploring composition and possibly music education.  She adds that making a living performing would be a dream come true.

On behalf of our Board of Trustees and our Senior Administration team, we wish Erika all the best in her future endeavours. We hope your dreams becomes reality.
