Tia Wood grew up in a musical community—she’s from Saddle Lake Cree Nation, home of the famous drum group Northern Cree, and her uncle Randy Wood is a two-time Grammy-nominated singer. She remembers her parents setting her and her siblings up around the drum at pow wows and jam sessions. “It was a way of keeping our heads afloat and putting food on the table; we would do little gigs as a family,” says Wood.
