Iskwe

Called one of the '10 Artists to Watch in 2016' by CBC Music, Iskwé's cross-cultural aesthetic is as striking as her tripped-out blend of soul. The name Iskwé (pronounced iss-kway) means 'woman' in her native language. Iskwé's debut album weaves together her Irish and Cree/Dene roots with hip hop breakbeats, left-field R&B, and traces of piano pop.

Her latest single "Nobody Knows" (produced by Juno nominees The Darcys) is an in-your-face anthem with a stark vocal performance and a powerful beat that forces the spotlight on the more the 1200 missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada. Iskwé was compelled to give her voice to this important issue after watching her community come together in both strength and sadness after the murder of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine. Poignant lyrics, "I won't be afraid" and "I won't let you look away anymore" show Iskwé's passion for creating music that is both sonically captivating and culturally relevant.

The Winnipeg-bred, Toronto-based singer-songwriter sings about her struggle to fit into/break away from Western archetypes, as Iskwé's connection to her roots and traditions is an important part of her artistic vision. With her debut effort, Iskwé carves out her own musical identity, bridging modern and cultural influences while challenging the current mold.
