Montreal-based indie singer-songwriter Emily Rockarts’ Little Flower is bursting with sonic easter eggs. Poised, polished, poppy and endearing, it’s hard to believe it’s a debut album. Rockarts’ 2016 EP Mapmaker saw Rockarts and her band traversing Canada’s map, alongside a few top 20 appearances on !earshot charts, as well as airplay of “Whale Song” on CBC’s The Sunday Edition. Rockarts, a self-confessed extroverted introvert, is a cool and comfortable, sharp-eyed observer much like the wallflower in Little Flower’s lilting title track. Little Flower is about a journey of personal growth, empowerment and not being afraid to take up space. Little Flower will be released April 24, 2020 on digital, vinyl and CD.
Chynna Lewis is a Taiwanese-Canadian Pop/Soul vocalist and songwriter based in Toronto. Born in Taiwan, Chynna moved to Canada at the age of ten. Growing up in a musical family, her mother sang, her father taught her guitar, and she and her brothers played music and harmonized together. As a teenager, Chynna discovered her love for singing through Soul and R&B music. The sounds of Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin deeply shaped her vocal style. She began writing her own songs on the piano and guitar at the age of fifteen, and this creative instinct eventually led her to her career in music.Having a reputation in Toronto as a versatile and skilled vocalist, Chynna has had the honour of working alongside and learning from artists and producers such as Ed Sheeran, Jessie Reyez, Charlotte Day Wilson, Matthew Burnett, and Jully Black. Now embarking on her journey as a solo artist, she is gearing up to release her debut EP in 2020. Her first single “Mind and Soul” will be released on all streaming platforms on February 28th, 2020.
