Safia Nolin

For a second consecutive year, the singer-songwriter from Limoilou proudly displays her colors as spokesperson for the JVL 2020!

With her dark folk-flavored songs, Safia Nolin has charmed both critics and audiences alike, winning the Félix for Female Performer of the Year at the 2017 ADISQ Gala, one year after being named Révélation de l’année at the same gala. Whether she sings her own compositions or covers of Quebec classics, the artist transports us to her unique universe.

Safia Nolin’s third album – her second composed of original songs – is titled Dans le noir and was released on October 5, 2018 via Bonsound. Named on the long list of the Polaris Music Prize and at ADISQ in the Album of the year – Folk and Album of the year – Critics’ choice categories, Safia’s first album, entitled Limoilou, was released in September 2015 via Bonsound. The artist from Quebec has since won the prestigious 2016 Félix-Leclerc Song Prize, the SOCAN 2016 Revelation Prize and two prizes at the 2016 GAMIQ (Folk Album of the Year and Songwriter of the Year) . The day after the ADISQ Gala, in November 2016, Safia launched a surprise album called Reprises Vol.1, on which she paid homage to beautiful music from here.

She revisits back eight classics from the Quebec repertoire with all the sensitivity that we know. The album won the Félix for Album of the Year – Reprises at the 2017 ADISQ Gala.
