IsKwé
Musician

Named one of the ‘Top 10 Artists to Watch in 2016’ by CBC Music, IsKwé’s (‘woman’ in Cree) unmistakable sound weaves her Irish and Cree-Dené roots with poignant politically charged lyrics, dark R&B rhythms, electronic flourishes and triphop breakbeats. Unafraid to challenge the convictions of her detractors by honouring her heritage and standing steadfast in her viewpoints, IsKwé’s artistry knows no bounds. Blending soulful, breathlessly delivered lyrics that are coloured by the many shades of human nature with a sonic palette that takes its queue from the 1990s Bristol sound, IsKwé’s music revels in her strength of self.
