Virgo Rising is Emily, Lauren, and Jenna. Creating music together in Winnipeg since 2018, they focus on blending delicate indie folk with catchy bedroom pop.
Having all pursued music individually for most of their lives, Virgo Rising approaches songwriting from a collaborative perspective. They aim to expand their sound by drawing influences from a variety of genres, varying their instrumentation, and experimenting with song structure. Their lyricism often reflects their collective outlook on adolescence and growth through themes such as the changing of seasons and mythology.
In the past year, they’ve played with local artists Urban Vacation, Kira Gregory, The Castle, and Jamboree. participated in the Winnipeg Folk Festival’s 2019 Stingray Young Performer’s Program under the mentorship of John K. Samson and Christine Fellows. and played at the Sherbrook Street Festival.
Virgo Rising is currently writing and recording for their debut EP.
