ABOUT HANORAH

Hanorah is a singer, songwriter, and visual artist from Montréal. Influenced by the likes of Etta James, Joss Stone, and Amy Winehouse, the combination of Hanorah’s powerful voice and the vulnerability of her messaging naturally drew her to soul music. Following several televised performances and a record deal, she released her debut EP For The Good Guys And The Bad Guys in 2019. The record amassed over a million streams, won her several awards, and helped her tour extensively through Canada and the U.S. supporting artists such as Mavis Staples, Coeur de Pirate, and Seratones.

After years on the road, Hanorah took advantage of recent down time to plunge back into songwriting and forge a new musical direction. What emerged was a collection of songs highlighting the overlap between the maturity of experience and the enduring child-like charm of playfulness. Music which journeys through emotions of the past and present, as she blurs the lines between the recurring cycles of time, choice, and circumstance.

The result was her first full length album Perennial. A work packed with RnB grooves and soulful ballads, as it digs deeper into Hanorah’s musical roots to explore the lush tones and textures of her voice.

WITCH PROPHET

Witch Prophet is a queer, East African, singer-songwriter, and the Co-CEO of Heart Lake Records. She provides her fans with a soundscape of vocal layers, loops, raps, and harmonies on a bed of hip-hop, jazz, and soul inspired beats. Think Erykah Badu meets Lauryn Hill meets Portishead. She finds depth and connection in creating music as a portal for self-growth and discovery, as she navigates and better understands her cultural and queer identity.

She has shared the stage with and opened for acts like Lido Pimienta, Sudan Archives, Shabazz Palaces, The Hallucination (fka A Tribe Called Red), SAMMUS, Sean Leon, JPEGMAFIA, Snotty Nose Rez Kids and THEESatisfaction to name a few.

She has toured Europe independently twice; playing shows in Paris, Amsterdam, London, and Berlin, as well as performed at North American and European music festivals like: Montreal Jazz Festival, Black Women Rock, New Skool Rules, Soul Of Brooklyn, Allied Media Conference, Sappy Fest, Electric Eclectic, Summerworks, Ottawa Capital Pride, Pride Toronto, Pop Montreal, Halifax Pop Explosion and so many more!

In March of 2020, Witch Prophet released her Ontario Arts Council funded sophomore LP D.N.A Activation. An ode to her Ethiopian and Eritrean ancestral roots, fusing Jazz, Hip-Hop, Soul and RnB with songs sung in English, Amharic, and Tigrinya. Co-produced by herself and her partner SUN SUN, praised by press and music lovers alike, DNA Activation was shortlisted for the 2020 Polaris Music Prize.

She has since released a deluxe edition of DNA Activation featuring remix tracks with rappers Stas THEE Boss and LATASHÁ. The video for her song "Tesfay" directed by Leah Vlemmiks was nominated for the 2021 Prism Prize and was an official selection at the 2021 Rhode Island International Film Festival as well as the 2021 SXSW Music Video awards. "Tesfay" was also nominated in the UKMVA’s Best International RnB/Soul video category alongside Beyoncé, Cardi B, Normani, The Weeknd, and Bryson Tiller.

Her newest video for her single "Makda" was released May 2021 and debuted on FADER. Currently, Witch Prophet has released her third album Gateway Experience in May 2023.
