Onna Lou is an Argentinian-Canadian artist who made Winnipeg her home in 2016.

With a degree in Contemporary Writing and Production from world-renowned Berklee College of Music, and another in Classical Music Composition from Universidad Católica Argentina in Buenos Aires, Onna Lou is an internationally recognized, highly-educated musician and artist who is well known for her heartfelt lyrics and ability to blend traditional folk with contemporary sounds.

In 2022 she released her chart-topping album Diamante with the support of Canada Council for the Arts, which reached 15 weeks on the Earshot Charts, having peaked at #1 on three Charts in Canada. She ranks among the 2.1% of female-identifying producers in the industry today, who also writes, plays instruments on, and records her own music.

Onna Lou has been nominated for Global artist of the year at the 2023 Western Canadian Music Awards. In 2022 she did her first Canadian tour performing in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, London, and Ottawa. She performs in her home country Argentina regularly as well. She is working on the production of her third album to be released in October 2024 (singles will start dropping in April leading to the album) which has received the support of Manitoba Arts Council for its creation.

Her songs are consistently played across the country, and have been featured across the CBC radio network, CKUA, and many more. She's also been featured on TV, newspaper, radio, and podcasts in Canada, Argentina, Mexico, USA, and other countries.

Onna Lou's explorations into a new sound for her live shows include two cellos on stage creating a very unique and deeply beautiful show. She is also often seen on stage with her guitar playing solo, with her duo with multi-instrumentalist Julian Vidal, and with her new quartet format.
