Brock Stonefish says playing guitar saved his life when he was a teen

Playing the guitar, singing the blues, or writing songs has been a daily ritual for the past 30 years for Lenape musician Brock Stonefish of Moraviantown in southwestern Ontario.

“It saved my life,” said Stonefish.

“When I was about 13 years old, I attempted suicide. That was right around the time when I started playing guitar and it brought me back.”

Stonefish’s music has taken him across the globe, performing as a solo artist, opening for B.B. King, and touring the United States with Gary Farmer and the Troublemakers.

Now Stonefish is organizing his second Indigenous Youth Guitar Giveaway. He said it’s a way to give back, to help First Nations, Métis or Inuit youth that are struggling.
