How It All Began, and Where Its Going...
Abby Stewart is an 18 year old singer/songwriter from Kingston, Ontario. A true Canadian girl, she fishes, plays hockey and softball but feels most at home on the music stage achieving some pretty impressive success in her budding career.

She has opened for many Canadian talents, most recently Cold Creek County at her hometowns Rockin' In the Square, Brett Kissel in Toronto at the CNE and in Ottawa on his Ice, Snow and 30 Below Tour, as well as for Tebey, Michelle Wright, Emerson Drive, Tim Hicks and many others.
She has had the great pleasure of performing at some of Canada’s biggest fairs and music festivals, including Boots and Hearts Music Festival, Havelock Country Jamboree, Ottawa Bluesfest, Trackside Music Fest and several more.
Abby released her EP "Firsts", in 2015 which included her radio release “I’m Still Faster”, followed by her first music video, which now has over 380,000 views on YouTube. In 2017 she collaborated with Invictus Entertainment, Big Star Records and and released a duet entitled "What If They're Wrong?" to national Canadian radio.
