Brielle Ansems

Last updated: June 21, 2021

Brielle Ansems’ indie pop-folk sound is a lyric-centred and emotionally charged experience. Her debut album, This New Hurricane, was released in March 2020 and was commended for its artisanship and production value, earning Brielle a total of five 2021 Music PEI Award nominations and taking home Pop Recording of the Year.  

As The East Mag puts it, “There’s a clarity ringing throughout [This New Hurricane] that’s immediately gripping. It manifests in Ansems soothing vocals, in the clean instrumentation... The atmosphere of this album is one that lingers long after it’s finished.”– Maggie MacLean, The East Mag.  

Brielle is currently recording her FACTOR funded 2021 sophomore album, Still Awake.
