About Abby Pond
Taxis River, Canada
Born and raised in Boiestown, New Brunswick, Canada, Abby grew up in a family of musicians; she took piano lessons and taught herself guitar. A songwriter since the age of twelve, a biologist, canoe guide, and chartered herbalist, Abby has a thirst to learn, travel and experience. This restlessness is evident in her music, which often paints a picture of Canada’s wilderness along with the wilderness of human emotion. A born storyteller, Abby’s simple Canadian folk style is simply an extension of herself and her observations of the world we inhabit.
Her self-titled EP, released in August 2008, has been long anticipated by her fans. The first track, "Shrugging off my skin," was selected as a semi-finalist in both the 2008 UK Songwriting Competition and the Australian International Songwriting Competition. Abby currently resides in London, UK.
