Winner of the Indigenous artist of the year award this year and winner of the SOCAN Foundation Indigenous Songwriter of the year in 2019, Anachnid is a multidisciplinary Oji-Cree artist based in Montreal. Her spirit animal, the spider, has eight legs, and she embodies just as many complex personalities on stage and in life: poisonous spirit, young woman in love, caring grandmother... Her debut album Dreamweaver, released in February 2020, was nominated on the Polaris Long List and for ADISQ's Anglophone Album of the Year. Her music is a hybrid and sensual style of electro-pop, trap, indie, soul and hip hop, with delicate and complex sound textures evocative of her ancestral cultures. An essential new voice in the contemporary urban musical landscape.
