'Paris Vagabond Gypsy' (given stage name) was 18 years old when she first
arrived in Whitehorse Yukon, as a hitchhiker musician & songwriter from
Vancouver Island, BC
She made it her goal to form a band who'd join her in spreading the feelings of
happiness and joy with her original songs. A year in the cold passed, and she
succeeded. By age 19 Paris had some of the best musicians in town, in her new
booking gigs in every bar she could for weekends on end, Paris was saturating
Whitehorse with her new music and the locals were loving it.
Paris is also known for her bass playing in other Whitehorse bands such as The
House Cats, Sonic Poon, The Steiner Recliners and The Recreational Hillbillies.
Paris is also known on the art circuit in Whitehorse with her psychedelic art
In the summer of 2016 Paris opened her own art stand 'The Gypsy
Wagon' at the fireweed market selling her albums, shirts and prints.
