skwē | ᐃᐢᑫᐧᐤ is, among many other things, an artist – a creator and communicator of music and of movement, of pictures, poetry and prose. And through it all, she’s a teller of stories that have impacted our past and will inform our future.
Her third album, acākosīk, was nominated for a JUNO Award for Adult Alternative Album of the Year, while its single, “Little Star,” took home the JUNO Award for Music Video of the Year.
iskwē’s brand new album, The Stars, is the inverse of acākosīk, starting with the title which is the English translation of the cree word acākosīk. The Stars invites us into an emotional and soulful experience, featuring entirely new arrangements of six songs with iskwē accompanied by a trio of piano (Michael Shand), cello (Mariel Gonzalez), and violin (Laura C Bates) recorded live-off-the-floor at Revolution Recording in Toronto.
