Born in Denver, raised in Alaska with Tsimshian and Sugpiaq roots, trained in South Florida and now back in Denver, it’s been a long way around for Chantil Dukart, and she’s just getting started. With a couple of CDs under her belt, the jazz-soul singer-pianist-songwriter is hosting an Indigenous Artist Songwriting & Recording Workshop on Saturday, Feb. 3 at Redline Contemporary Art Center, 2350 Arapahoe St., Denver, CO 80205.

Her friends at the non-profit Mobile Studio are providing the gear and expertise to jump start songwriters into the process. Chantil sat down with Steve and Abi on The Morning Set this week to talk about her journey, and about the importance of giving Indigenous artists a creative voice.
