Born in the Mount Currie, BC, Gordon Dick was surrounded by a family that loved music. With that influence of his early years, he started a rock band called “Siwash Rock”. His song appeared on the Grammy-nominated compilation Native North America (Vol. 1). in 2014.
The band quickly became a sensation locally in the 1970s as they performed at weekend parties and weddings. In 2017 he performed at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival.
