iskwē | 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 forthcoming full-length, The Stars (set for release on March 5th), is the inverse of acākosīk, starting with the title which is the English translation of the cree word acākosīk. Where acākosīk is a blaze of sonic exploration, The Stars is an elegant and intimate sharing of the collection allowing iskwē’s songwriting, voice and spirit to shine.
