She is a Canadian singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and dancer from Calgary who has most recently worked out of New York City and London.

If you are wondering how to pronounce her name, let me help you.

I found a youtube clip of her saying her name. You're welcome.

And here is the cool dance video that was shot in one take for 'Hideaway.' Pretty neat!

Work it girl!
