Fernie (QC, Canada)

Music as a safe space—to reveal, share and affirm oneself. The Montrealer with a Brazilian background, Fernie, released their debut album Aurora in the fall of 2021—a blend of vulnerable words, emancipated soul and melodious R&B, vibrant with inclusion and subtle nuances of 90’s melancholy. A 3-year process, through which the queer artist first sought to be perceived as a whole person—for an album led by an agile voice, which narrates and links the past, the present and the future. 

After touring the previous project in many festivals (Osheaga, Montreal Jazz Festival, M for Montreal, Pop Montreal, Bars en Bars in Paris and Rennes), Fernie has been working with the likes of Patrick Watson on their follow up project called “Hopeless Dreams”, set to be released in the middle of 2023.
