Named one of the Top 10 Artists to Watch by CBC Music, ISKWÉ (which means ‘woman’ in her native language) is fostering an unmistakable sound that weaves together her Cree/Dené roots with poignant politically charged lyrics, dark soulful R&B rhythms, electronic flourishes, and trip hop breakbeats.

In a world where we are constantly defining the sum of our lives through the filter of another’s gaze, genuinely unchained artists like Winnipeg-bred Hamilton-based singer-songwriter ISKWÉ (pronounced iss-kway) are becoming a rare breed.

ISKWÉ has received a 2018 Juno nomination for Indigenous Music Album of the Year and she won the 2017 West Coast Music Award for Electronic/Dance Artist of the Year.
