About

Brandi Vezina is a Winnipeg singer/songwriter whose authentic country roots are intertwined with rock and the blues. She is a natural born performer who comes from a musical Metis family. Her biggest inspirations include Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin and Miranda Lambert.

“Danger” is a warning to women in what warning signs to recognize in unhealthy relationships. The track features DJ and producer Boogey the Beat (“The Sage is on Fire” featuring Snotty Nose Rez Kids, “Land Back” with A Tribe Called Red), and Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) award winning producer, Murray Pulver. 

 “Danger” has a powerful message combined with pop and country elements as Vezina was inspired to write about Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG2S) throughout Turtle Island (North America). “It’s the first song I wrote for my forthcoming EP, #dontsettle (May 2021) after the lyrics ‘Danger, avoid this my girl, it’ll destroy your world’, came to me in a dream,” recalls Vezina. “I’m proud of it because it’s a warning for my own women and I included a traditional drum at the end of the song to honour MMIW2S.” 

Vezina is collaborating with producers, Murray Pulver (CCMA award winner) and Randy Hiebert (lead guitar player for the Bellamy Brothers) on the EP with songs that also address her dating experiences, and encourage women to stand up for themselves in their personal and workplace relationships. 

Vezina’s single, “Waiting on a Ring” (Aug 2020), is the third release in advance of her #dontsettle EP (May 2021). “It’s about living carefree and embracing being single,” explains Vezina. “I was inspired to write about the experiences of friends going through messy divorces and I intentionally wanted to get people dancing.”  

Previous singles include the top-10 Indigenous Music Countdown tracks, “John Dillinger Type” (May 2020), and “Walk Away” (2019), as heard on SiriusXM Canada’s Indigenous Peoples’ Radio channel. 

Vezina was recognized as one of CBC Canada’s, the JUNO Awards’ and the National Music Centre’s Searchlight 2020 favourite new Canadian artists. She was a featured artist on Metis Jig & Jam Variety Show on CTV in 2020. Sakihiwe Festival and Recovery Day Live in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 2019 and 2020. Vezina was also selected to showcase in the virtual Diamonds in the Rough Stage during Canadian Country Music week (2020).
