Artist

IsKwé

Based In: Toronto, ON, CA

Hip-hop and R&B Singer-songwriter IsKwé was born and raised in Winnipeg by her Cree/Dene mother and Irish father. Called ‘One to Watch’ by The Grid TO and one of the ‘Top 10 Canadian Musicians You Need to Know’ 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 roots with hip hop breakbeats, left-field R&B, and traces of piano pop (Think Esthero meets Alicia Keys).
