OSYPA’s debut EP Luna is a testament to the beauty of restraint- a thoughtful glimpse into Alexandra Babiak’s memories and desires.

As a teenager OSYPA fell in love with greats like Nina Simone and Billie Holiday. You can sense these influences in the heart wrenching arc of her voice as it floats among analog soundscapes.. Alexandra Babiak wrote the songs on Luna after the sudden death of her mother and explores this loss with a rare openness. But OSYPA’s music is full of playfulness too. For inspiration she finds joy in the little things- walks in High Park, taking baths, reading mystery novels and eating candy. OSYPA is well versed in the joys and trials of life, and you can hear this wisdom in her music. She is currently based in Toronto and working on a full-length album.
