// Elisapie
In September 2018, Elisapie will release her fourth album, The Ballad of the Runaway Girl, through Bonsound and Yotanka. In the self-doubt that arose from a tumultuous postpartum depression, Elisapie has found comfort and hope in ancient Indigenous folk tunes. While she was imagining recording an inuit folk cover songs album, inspiration came by simply strumming her guitar and new songs came in naturally. Intimate pieces of her own identity, such as her adpoption, her exodus and the role of women in society, have woven themselves into her work to form a whole. The Ballad of the Runaway Girl is a poetic gesture driven by urgency, doubt, gentleness, sensitivity, grace and motherly love.

// Beatrice Deer Band
Beatrice Deer is a singer-songwriter from Quaqtaq, Nunavik, QC. Her music is a combination of traditional Inuit throat singing and indie pop rock. Deer has released three full-length albums and her most recent album, "My All To You", was released in 2018. Her breakthrough album won an award for Best Inuit Cultural Album at the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards the same year. Since then Deer has travelled extensively across the Canadian North to perform for and provide training to artists in her community, educating them on professional development, funding and project collaboration. Deer is also an activist working to bring attention to suicide awareness and prevention in Indigenous communities, speaking openly about her personal experiences with suicide and depression to increase awareness and to foster dialogue on a global scale.
