Lorissa has an indefinable quality, a wildness — like unkempt grass. She grew up in a small town set deep in the yawn of the Peace River Valley in Northern British Columbia, and her life has been rich in music and wild places.
Feeding the wildfire of music within, since 2009 she has been recording, touring and creating music with an eclectic mix of artists across Canada. Her album ‘Be the Change’ and collaborations ‘Wildwood Soul’ and ‘The Golden hour’ reflect, in their diversity, her deep respect for beauty in all its forms. With silky-sweet vocals and a rich cast of instrumentals, her music feels like the fondest road trip memories, or lazy days in the long grass; like a golden afternoon’s dreams.
She chooses to be inspired every day, whether by a deep and winding conversation, a fleeting moment of light, or a wayward feather found in the woods. She’s working hard at breathing life into her dreams, and making some potent music along the way.
