Band Info


Buffy is a true songwriting master who’s contribution over her 50+ years in the business led The Guardian to declare recently that "She is also one of the most successful and versatile songwriters of the last half-century"


As a college student in the early 1960s, Buffy Sainte-Marie became known as a writer of protest songs and love songs. Many of these became huge hits and classics of the era, performed by hundreds of other artists including Barbra Streisand, Elvis Presley, Chet Atkins, Janis Joplin, Roberta Flack, Neil Diamond, Tracy Chapman and The Boston Pops Orchestra.

In 1976 she quit recording to be a mommy and an artist, and to continue as a student of experimental music. Buffy and her son Dakota Starblanket Wolfchild became well known for their five-year stint on Sesame Street, where they taught us that "Indians still exist."

Buffy Sainte-Marie released her 18th album, Running for the Drum, in North America and throughout Europe, in 2009, to critical acclaim, "She is also one of the most successful and versatile songwriters of the last half-century" (The Guardian). Adding to an already expansive list of accolades and awards, Buffy Sainte-Marie won her second Juno Award for Aboriginal Album of the Year and became the 25th inductee into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame.
As a composer, she won an Academy Award in 1982 for the song Up Where We Belong as recorded by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes for the film An Officer and A Gentleman.
