Basia Bulat

1984 -

Origin: Ontario, Canada

Main instrument: Vocal

Genres: Folk/Country, Pop

Canadian indie folk darling Basia Bulat is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist and a singer-songwriter of rare breed. Her gorgeous alto voice - sometimes reminiscent of Tracy Chapman - was enough to convince influential UK label Rough Trade to sign her on in 2007, a breakthrough moment that unleashed her talents to the world with her debut album Oh, My Darling. Born in 1984 into a musical family, Bulat learned piano from her mother, a music teacher, and later on tackled any instrument she could get a hold of. In keeping with the family tradition, Bulat is always accompanied on stage by her brother Bobby on drums. Her sophomore album, Heart of My Own, was released in early 2010 to international praise. Tall Tall Shadow followed three years later. After moving to Montreal the following year, she released Good Advice in 2016.
