Meet Jasmine Netsena
Jasmine Netsena travels a lot. In fact, performing has taken her all over Canada and the United States, often to larger cities where concert venues and music festivals abound. But Jasmine is a small town girl at heart and always relishes coming home to Fort Nelson where traffic is non-existent and where winter recreational activities are unrivaled. Jasmine is a nature enthusiast whose favourite season is winter, and when she’s home during the winter months she likes to spend time skiing the many local trails. In off-winter months Jasmine can sometimes be found out on the water in a canoe.
Fort Nelson is a place overflowing with culture, says Jasmine. In addition to the countless outdoor and indoor recreational pursuits here, she also appreciates the active arts community and the talented artists that make it up. Jasmine herself is learning the art of beading as well as working on moose hides. Learning new skills helps to feed her creativity as well as relax and unwind after a hectic recording or performing schedule.
Music flows through Jasmine’s blood, and though she confesses she’s been tempted to give up at times, she is glad she has kept at it. She is deeply appreciative of the people who have supported her and grateful to the community of Fort Nelson and it’s people who embraced her wholeheartedly when she moved here a few years ago. It didn’t take long for her to see how local businesses work together and how supportive they are of local organizations and groups, like the arts community.
Creative. Original. Soulful.
Her soulful voice and folk-country style and original songs have earned Fort Nelson’s Jasmine Netsena critical acclaim from sources across Canada and the US. Her debut CD “Take Me With You” was recently nominated in the Best Folk/Acoustic CD category for the Aboriginal People’s Choice Awards, and Jasmine herself was nominated for Best New Artist. Jasmine Netsena skillfully writes and performs songs that speak to the soul about love, loss and life. Jasmine Netsena has performed in venues and at concerts and events throughout Canada and the US. Her CD “Take Me With You” is available for purchase on iTunes.
