Rising Down


  • Kaia Kater explained the meaning of this Nine Pin track to Uncut:

    "It was specifically written to reflect what I felt as a person of color in America. I wanted to make a statement about Black Lives Matter and the horrors and injustices that black people face every day. Racism is not only a state of mind, but a base system through which America operates. It's the prison - industry complex, forced ghettoization, the repealing of the Voting Rights Act, the segregated school systems, the unchecked police brutality."
  • Nine Pin won the 2016 Pushing the Boundaries prize at The Canadian Folk Music Awards. The honor recognizes a music act that takes creative risks by creating music with folk roots that is innovative, original and imaginative.
