Last Birds
prairie gothic folk






Last Birds is the offspring of Canadian Folk Music Award nominated artists, Lindsay Arnold and Mike Davis.


Their mesmerizing combination of close harmonies and dynamic guitar work harkens back to the early days of country folk music while exploring dilemmas of the modern day. Listeners find themselves on a hypnotic journey led by the couple’s spine-tingling vocals and intricate guitar interludes.


The duo’s simple, “two voices, two guitars, one microphone performances allow their complex stories of life, death, loss, love and regret to shine through while their on-stage banter reflects the small town informality infused in their relationship.



The couple formed Last Birds in November of 2019 and quickly gained momentum despite pandemic setbacks.


The duo was nominated for multiple awards in 2021, including a Saskatchewan Music Award for Roots/Folk Artist of the year as well as Saskatchewan Country Music Association’s Group and Alternative Country Album of the Year.


Their debut EP, released in April 2021, was well received and reached #1 on Kansas Public Radio while spending several weeks on the Roots Music Report charts for Top Folk Album and Top Canadian Folk Album.


Mike and Lindsay have been writing and performing together for only 4 years; however, the couple has a lifetime of creative experience behind them



Lindsay Arnold has worked as a visual artist and  filmmaker for over 20 years.  Her paintings, drawings and videos have been exhibited at galleries and film festivals throughout North America and beyond.   -



Mike has been working as a musician since the age of 16 when he toured the US and Bermuda with The Continentals.  He has a wealth of live performance experience as a solo artist and a band member.   From lead to rhythm guitar, vocal front man to supporting harmony, Mike's ear for detail has served him well.


Mike and Lindsay got their start writing and performing together with the trio, Hook & Nail, in 2018.  Their first album, Ghosts of Taylorton, won them a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination for Emerging Artist of the Year.    


Last Birds live in the tiny village of North Portal, Saskatchewan with their young daughter in a house they built with their own hands.



Last Birds acknowledge that their home in Saskatchewan is on treaty land. These treaties serve to govern our relationships with Indigenous people. Mike and Lindsay live and work on Treaty 2 territory, which is the traditional territory of the Nakota, Nehiyaw/Cree, Nahkawe/Saulteaux, and Dakota. They also acknowledge the traditional homeland of the Métis.
