ABOUT THE BANDS
Tigerwing is the not so alter-ego of solo artist Sarah Kelly. Since Tigerwing’s inception in 2013, she has moved through the Canadian cities of Edmonton, Calgary, Windsor, and Toronto, where she is currently based.
Her music is often described as dark, theatrical and moody bearing likeness to the vocal/ production styles of Bjork and Fever Ray. CMJ once dubbed her “Florence and the Machine’s cooler, younger sister”.
Highlights of Tigerwing’s career include playing festivals like Sled island, Femme Wave, Slut Island, and Canadian Music Week. Her favourite festival moment has to be the 2016 edition of Sled Island Festival where she was programmed into a showcase lineup curated by Peaches. She has also opened for a number of her favourite artists such as Austra, Lust for Youth, Jessy Lanza, and Mozart’s Sister.

As a singer, songwriter, and producer Shaemara sets the tone with her electro, Soul, RnB sounds; layered with ethereal harmonies, grounded by intriguing stories, and often paired with her projected organic video edits.
