Literate, incisive, and unpretentious: Safia Nolin is perhaps one of Canada’s most idiosyncratic singer-songwriters. Within the spectrum of Québec’s music industry star system, Nolin defies the norm, offering a purity and humility rarely seen on, or off stage. Winning the 2017 ADISQ award for best female singer-songwriter of the year, Safia Nolin continues a furtive rise, offering modernist folk that’s as straight-forward, as it is poignant.
