Performers

Semiah is a Kanien'keha:ka (Mohawk), Turtle clan electro R&B artist from Six Nations, ON. Now based out of Toronto, Semiah's songs radiate the energy of an artist with an international heart who grew up touring around the world: from art festivals in the Australian outback to the beaches of Trinidad since the age of 7. 

Semiah's atypical voice, harmonies, and melodies were shaped by the Indigenous women's acapella group, Ulali, with the most mentorship from the member, Jen Kreisberg. Semiah's distinctive vocal sound is now supported by melodic and production elements of R&B, electronic, lofi, hip-hop, psychedelic-rock, and dream pop. 

From Whistler, BC emerges a voice that rivals the uniqueness of the wondrous scenery in which it was nurtured. Singer-songwriter ZADA’s buoyant and ethereal alternative R&B sound is both refreshing as it is comforting, and all this amalgamates on her debut album, Water in the Desert.

ZADA’s music is laced with synths, inundated with guitars and is inspired by the scenic imagery of her hometown.
