Westboro Village is proud to welcome Mikhail Laxton and his full band to #WestboroFUSE!
In 2015, Laxton auditioned for The Voice Australia, and his stunning voice helped him advance to the “Super Battle” round that season. This experience, which garnered him tons of fans in homeland, would set him on the path that ultimately brought him to Ottawa, where he relocated just a few years ago with his wife. Lucky us!
Soulful and raw, Mikhail Laxton is an artist poised to join the ranks of Canada’s great singer-songwriters.
