Vancouver-born, Toronto-based Alt. R&B singer Claire Mortifee creates music that is poignantly suited for our times.
She remarks, “as an artist I have the opportunity to foster deeper collective empathy by being vulnerable in public. This is powerful! I strive to be as real as I possibly can with every artistic offering I make.” With vocal inspiration from Amy Winehouse and Erykah Badu - and a sound reminiscent of SZA - Mortifee’s music dips into neo-soul and synth R&B with ease. With her combined streams already amassing over 2 million plays on Spotify alone, she states “I am so grateful that my music is finding those who need it most.” In Mortifee’s 2018 online radio interview with New Zealand’s Galaxy 107FM, over 9 million listeners tuned in to hear Claire discuss her next project currently in the works between various Toronto creatives. Keep your ears open for what’s next.
