Canadians just want to have fun

Canadian Famous, the Band

As a musical outfit, Canadian Famous is out to delight. Pop-folk originals and cheeky cover tunes come to life with the sweet blend of voices of Nicole, April and Christine. Catchy hooks, clever lyrics, and gentle banter offer subtle surprises. 

Nicole and April enjoy the comraderie of the open mic, festival and market scene here in Calgary. 


Canadian Famous is the love child of Nicole Zylstra. Whether it’s through songs, stories, stand-up comedy, improv, or plays, Nicole lives to make you laugh and cry. She’s spent more than 20 years as an arts professional across Canada, and for sure you’ve seen her do something. Maybe it was a commercial about snoring. Or a reality show. (Sketch Troupe, 2002). Or performing for your corporate holiday party. You’ve totally seen her. You just can’t remember where. But you know you like her.
