“Hers is not a bombastic solo outing, but rather an emotional journey informed by her tender voice, bluesy guitar and raw, expressive harmonica.” Lynn Saxberg, Ottawa Citizen

Sings like an angel, plays like a beast. Rock and roll lover of Heavenly and the heaviest blues. After learning to file harmonica reeds in a back alley, Catriona toured Canada as the bassist for Halifax teen-rockers, Plumtree (who inspired the cult-favourite book and movie, Scott Pilgrim, with their song of the same name).
She’s played with Italian harmonica wizards, a Hiroshima-based garage rock band, and has been a hired harp gun for Canadian folk and indie favourites before striking out on her own.
Combined with the soulful power of Tracy Chapman, the uniqueness of Bruno Mars and a voice that can silence a room, Nefe is a burgeoning Canadian talent that is sure to take the industry by storm in the coming years.
Born Sarah Jea Felker, Nefe is a singer/songwriter hailing from the small Southwestern Ontario city of Guelph. Adopting her name from Queen Nefertiti, Nefe stands to lead and empower woman and men to accept their real beauty, not succumbing to the pressures of perfection defined by today’s media culture.
Though Nefe’s soft spoken appearance illudes many, she is loud on the inside, with a rich soul, expressing her voice through her music.
