Thank You To
Friday, December 18 - Nefe
Adept listeners might be able to trace Nefe’s genre-defying sound back to her endless influences from folk to pop or R&B to reggae but what listeners will actually hear is an idiosyncratic sound that can only be described as 3-dimensional – affecting the listener’s heart, mind and soul. Nefe’s power has been described as her ability to make you feel before you can think. Her vocal range and precision vibrates with the healing tradition of ancient wisdom that belies her youth. Nefe’s voice is the salve that cuts through the pandemonium of the modern world.
Guelph Ontario native, Nefe is known for writing love letters to the soul. Releasing her debut EP ‘ Mama’ in 2017 Nefe introduced her music to the world wearing her heart on her sleeve. “Over the course of the record’s five tracks, produced by Timber Timbre’s Taylor Kirk, Nefe flits nonchalantly between rock, reggae, classicist R&B and get-your-lighters-out piano-and-strings pop balladry like she’s already been doing this forever and long ago moved past such petty, pointless distinctions as genre. And, man, can she sing.” – Toronto Star. Early 2018, Nefe hit the road across Canada with Canadian Legend Bruce Cockburn on his “ Bone On Bone’ Tour. Playing stages like ‘ The Center in Vancouver for Performing arts’ All the way back to the infamous “ Massey Hall’ In Toronto Ontario, where Nefe resides. Currently, Nefe is taking lessons from heartbreak, the road, the unknown, love and putting them in her newest piece of work (insert album name here- Thinking ‘ Tasman’) recorded out of coach house studios- an innovative, game-changing analog studio that reverts back to the days of tape, which Singer/songwriter Nefe believes has really been able to capture the realness and soul listeners receive when they attend her live shows. With many accomplishments under her belt, Nefe Continues to take strides forward towards her ultimate vision of healing the world through the power of music.
