About Rayannah:

Rayannah bends noise into music by running voice, breath, synth and percussion through loop pedals. Underscored by intricate beat-making, her evocative lyrics in French and English rise above dense soundscapes, pulling listeners into a world both dark and sweet.

Innovative on stage and in the studio, Rayannah has just unveiled her first full length album "Nos repaires (Our Haunts)" (March 8, 2019). This new collection of songs featuring singles "En attendant demain" and "Best of You" pursues and pushes the sounds and textures explored in Rayannah’s debut EP "Boxcar Lullabies".

Born and raised in Winnipeg, Rayannah has taken her electro-soul across Canada, to the West Coast of the US, and to Europe. Whether opening for Esperanza Spalding or Coeur de Pirate, fronting her band or performing alone on stage, Rayannah shares something raw, intimate, and transcendent all at once.

La voix singulière de Rayannah résonne en échos et en strates pour créer un tout à partir de rien. Munie de pédales loop, l’artiste bilingue construit des séquences sur place avec sa voix, son souffle, de la percussion et des synthétiseurs. Ses paroles viscérales en français et en anglais planent au-dessus des paysages sonores parfois clairsemés, parfois denses et complexes.

Femme-orchestre autant sur scène qu’en studio, Rayannah a dévoilé son premier album complet “Nos repaires” en mars de 2019. Cette nouvelle collection de chansons majoritairement francophones poursuit l’élan de son premier maxi-disque “Boxcar Lullabies” tout en s’ouvrant davantage sur l’univers onirique et coloré de l’artiste.

Née et toujours basée à Winnipeg, Rayannah a fait voyager son électro-soul à travers le Canada et l’Europe. Que ce soit en première partie de Esperanza Spalding, Coeur de Pirate ou Saul Williams, seule sur scène ou accompagnée de son band, Rayannah partage une expérience fébrile et intime avec son auditoire.

About Lord Byrun:

Continuing in the bardic tradition, Lord Byrun cherishes and champions the inherent power of songs. Cutting his teeth as a member of Indigo Joseph, he is constantly working his craft by observing, learning and questioning. Having begun as a wordsmith, over the past 10 years he has slowly studied and taught himself guitar, bass, synthesizer, piano, and drums. Not claiming any virtuosity, he attests that curiosity and a sincere pleasure in playing and learning drive his musical quest. Known for his profound lyrics and intense deliveries, this student of the song holds it as his personal tenant to strive for excellence as a performer and composer.
