About

Pegged as Canada’s breakout alt-diva, Begonia has built a legion of fans online and at her legendary live shows. Her critically acclaimed discography includes Lady In Mind EP (2017), Fear (2019) and Powder Blue (2023). Among her accolades, she has two JUNO nominations (2021, 2024, Adult Alternative Album of the Year), two Polaris Prize nominations, multiple #1 songs on CBC Radio, and was named one of NPR’s Artists You Need to Know. Her sophomore album, Powder Blue emerged in early 2023 and confronts themes of sexuality, self-discovery, acceptance and empowerment. The album was named one of CBC Music’s Best Canadian Albums of 2023 (#7) and was shortlisted for the 2023 Polaris Music Prize. 

Begonia’s live performance is world class. She has been playing sold out clubs and theatres in North America, and recently supported indie-all-star, Leith Ross, on their European tour. Her vocal prowess has the power to absolutely floor an audience, evidenced at her Polaris Gala performance.

Riding a wave of momentum with a record number of people discovering Powder Blue, Begonia’s upcoming EP, Open Swim, will be released July 17, 2024 via Birthday Cake Records. Co-written and produced by Alexa Dirks and Marcus Paquin (The National, The Weather Station, Arcade Fire) along with contributions from her frequent collaborators and producer duo, deadmen, the EP is a project that “encompasses the feeling of working through conflict and the elation that can surface when you’re honest with others and ul]mately yourself.

"With a rich sound and unshakeable confidence, Canadian-born Begonia is a force to be reckoned with." - Wonderland Magazine (UK)
