About the artists

Erin Browne is a 27 year old musician and creative from Scarborough, Ontario. As a Caribbean biracial woman growing up in Scarborough, she was exposed to many genres of music, and developed a particular emotional resonance with folk-inspired alternative music and classic rock. But didn’t see herself reflected in these genres as a queer Black woman. The lack of diversity deterred her from writing and performing in these worlds in my early years, but after spending her teens singing in punk rock garage bands, she found the confidence to begin releasing solo works. Exploring themes of love, loss, addiction, recovery, safety, danger, and redemption, her work strives to speak to and lift up the women who are flawed, damaged, but still lead with the heart. She’s passionate about diversity and representation in the Canadian music industry, and fostering collaborative work environments in which minorities and women can flourish as themselves.

Shanika Maria (she/they) is a queer Black singer-songwriter, producer and creator currently based in Toronto. Her lyrics are contemplative and introspective as she navigates the intricacies of the human condition. She is influenced by music across genres, borrowing sounds and ideas from country, folk, jazz, classical, latin and electronic music. Over their career, they have released two projects under Shanika Maria: Childish Games EP [2017] and Subtle Uncertainties LP [2019] Shanika continues to expand her practice by collaborating across artistic disciplines by providing music for dance performance, films, promotional materials , theater, as well as being commissioned to remix other artists' work.
