Biography

Winner of the Félix Revelation of the Year and Indigenous Artist of the Year at ADISQ 2023, Révélation Radio-Canada 2022-2023, Kanen is a singer-songwriter from the Innu community of Uashat mak Mani-Utenam on the North Shore. In spring 2023, Kanen released her debut album Mitshuap, with a rawer indie-rock musicality. Her songs blend French and Innu-aimun, a language she is learning to master as part of a process of reclaiming her identity. On stage, Kanen presents herself fully embodied in all her complexity, with her punk energy marked by great poetry that stirs strong emotions.
