Melbourne based artist Canisha is a soulful singer with an edge, a lyricist whose emotive and playful music captivates and draws you in. Canisha started her musical journey busking, with just an amp and microphone. There is a freshness and raw energy to her music that comes from her time busking on busy city streets. She feels at home when performing where she can be her raw and authentic self.
In 2022, Canisha put herself on the map, performing alongside Adam Briggs, and other First Nations Artists at the Bad Apples House Party. This opened many doors for Canisha, leading to securing a slot at the 2023 St Kilda Music Festival, Music for Mob at the Brunswick Music Festival, headlining Melbourne’s “Blak Stage” at the Retreat Hotel and Yirramboi Festival. Canisha has been lucky enough to work with and receive mentorship from Candice Lorrae from the Merindas, Bad Apples Music, Bumpy, Tasman Keith and Beatrice Lewis from Haiku Hands. Canisha has been chosen as a 2023 recipient of the Singing our Futures music program run by the Archie Roach Foundation. During this program Canisha wrote a song with Soul artist Bumpy and will be performing at the Big Sound music conference. Canisha was also asked to be a part of the First Nations Pathway Program run by Mushroom Group where she is being mentored by Tasman Keith.
