BlkBird is Canadian alternative singer/songwriter Chanel. BlkBird decided to pursue a career in music as music has been her lifeline for as long as she can remember. "There are countless songs that have made me feel so deeply in so many ways and I want to contribute to that. When I listen to artists/bands such as Fleetwood Mac, Queens of the Stone Age, Joni Mitchell, La Luz, Led Zeppelin, Jeff Buckley, Lana Del Rey and more, I am pulled to the magical and consuming world of music." BlkBird began singing at a very young age and has always used songwriting as an outlet. "When I write something out of hurt or turmoil, I immediately feel better. It solidifies the notion that there is beauty in the ugly and light in the darkness. It makes sense of this wild world." Her mission is to create authentic music that helps others the way that her favorite artists/bands helped her. She has opened for Jeff Martin of The Tea Party, Puddle of Mudd, Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots, Slaughter and more. She has also played with Ian D'Sa (Billy Talent) and Cone McCaslin (Sum 41) for Make Music Matter's Unplugged Together fundraiser. Her eclectic taste in music allows her to blend genres that inspire her while also adding her own individual style to her music. BlkBird released her debut EP with Grammy Award winning producer, David Bottrill, on September 16th 2022.
