John Guliak & Prairie Flounder
John Guliak is a Canadian singer-songwriter who has been performing roots music in Canada for over 20 years. John's music contrasts the isolation of his prairie upbringing with his later experiences in the urban landscapes of Glasgow, Winnipeg, Vancouver, Edmonton and Toronto.
The songs that result from this perspective have been compared to those of other uniquely Canadian voices such as Gordon Lightfoot and Leonard Cohen. His whiskey and cigarettes baritone, described in Nerve Magazine as, "one of those character voices that should almost be trademarked," places him in the company of such singers as Merle Haggard, The Handsome Family's Brent Sparks and Rufus Wainwright.
In 2004, he released 7 Stories and 13 Songs, the second CD for Mint Records that follows his 2002 début, The Black Monk. Both CDs have been critically praised and feature performances by some of Western Canada's most talented musicians.
John's live shows have been applauded for their honesty and intensity and there are very few Canadian Roots acts he hasn’t shared the stage with somewhere along the line.
