Artist

Kinnie Starr

Based In: Ontario, CA

Alida Kinnie Starr is one of Canada’s most adored and critically acclaimed underground musicians. Widely known in hip-hop circles as an artist with a strikingly authentic voice, Starr has been blazing trails since 1996 with her beat slamming recordings, outspoken race and gender politics, intelligent and edgy visual art and striking looks. In 2010 Starr won a Juno as a producer for Digging Roots’ second album, “We Are” and was nominated at the APCMA’s for her video, “It’s All You”, produced by Big Soul Productions.

The New Yorker describes Starr as “edgy and enchanting”. Japan Times writes, “never didactic, always intelligent”. Canada’s own Globe and Mail describes Starr as a “raw and feral talent”.
