Edmonton, Alberta artist VISSIA creates alt-pop music that plunges and hooks to catch and release. Whether breaking on the sand or splashing in the mud, this self-proclaimed earthy body of water writes songs as a way to observe, record and interpret her own internal paradoxes. Drawing on dance, R&B, rock and soul, VISSIA’s intuitive creative choices as a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist explore our emotional heart-spaces with unquenchable curiosity and playful awareness.
VISSIA has made high-profile appearances including the UK’s Great Escape Festival, NXNE, the Edmonton Folk Music Festival and the Canmore Folk Music Festival, sharing stages with the likes of Hawksley Workman, Jim Bryson, Matt Andersen, and Lindi Ortega.
Driven by connection and thirsty for movement, VISSIA dives into bubbly waters and emerges with a collection of pop-polished gems with her sophomore LP With Pleasure (Hurry Hard; April 30, 2021).
