Artist/Band Info

  • It’s clear from the first listen to Edmonton, Alberta indie-pop artist VISSIA’s music that she doesn’t play by the rules. In fact, her career evolution illustrates she has no problem making up her own. Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, label manager, graphic designer—VISSIA has become a prominent figure in the Alberta music scene, and increasingly, the Canadian music scene overall.

    VISSIA’s powerful declaration of independence came in the form of her 2017 album Place Holder—released on her own imprint, Hurry Hard Records—which confirmed the promise of years of developing a sound distinctly her own, one that manages to connect listeners to their own emotions and imagined landscapes.

    Along the way, she has made many high-profile appearances including the UK’s Great Escape Festival, the Edmonton Folk Music Festival and the Canmore Folk Music Festival, along with sharing stages with the likes of Whitehorse, Jim Bryson, Matt Andersen, Lindi Ortega and others across Canada.

    VISSIA is also a member of acclaimed Edmonton alt-pop collective The Hearts and her co-producer Emily Bachynski’s project Bad Buddy, along with being an increasingly in-demand session singer, including for the likes of JUNO nominee Nuela Charles.

    But whether creating her own music or adding her talents to the work of others, VISSIA’s choices are unfailingly natural and honest. It’s a testament to her decade-plus of engagement, perseverance
