Irene Poole is an actor, singer-songwriter, and composer from Banff, Alberta. She has performed her songs at various venues around the Bow Valley, and graduated in 2021 with her BFA in Musical Theatre from LIU Post. Irene's indie-folk songs often take inspiration from the natural world around her, and from other strong women songwriters like Joni Mitchell and Brandi Carlile.
Irene has played the Canmore Folk Festival, shared the stage with Danny Michel, and opened for Quote the Raven at artsPlace. Her debut album was recorded in the fall of 2023, and she looks forward to releasing it in the near future. Through acting, singing, writing, and playing her ukuleles, Irene aims to be a storyteller in everything she does.
