Chad VanGaalen

Chad VanGaalen

Self-recording and playing almost every instrument – including many hand-crafted ones – Chad VanGaalen has become one of Canada’s most celebrated and unpredictable artists. In addition to being a twice Juno-nominated and Polaris Prize shortlisted musician, Chad is also a celebrated illustrator and animator who has shown across Canada and in Europe. Chad lives with his partner and their daughters in a ramshackle and colourful house in Calgary, and doesn’t like to leave home more than he absolutely has to.
