Music as a safe space - to reveal, share and affirm oneself. The Montrealer with a Brazilian background, Fernie released their debut album "Aurora" in the fall of 2021 - a blend of vulnerable words, emancipated soul and melodious R&B, vibrant with inclusion and subtlenuances of 90'smelancholy. A 3-year process, through which the queer artist first sought to be perceived as a whole person - for an album led by anagile voice, which narrates and links the past, the present and the future.
Throughout the last year, Fernie was able to tour in Quebec, playing major festivals such as Osheaga, JazzFestival of MTL, FEQ, PopMontreal, etc. Fernie's first album accumulated over 200k streams and songs like "New Beginnings" and "Back There" have been getting consistent plays on Sirius XM radios. Fernie is now currently working on building the sonic and visual world for their next project, set to release in 2023.
