Begonia

Begonia is an acclaimed synth-pop-soul artist, based in Winnipeg. Noisey wrote that, “Begonia has one of Canada’s most extraordinary voices, and thankfully she uses it to obliterate the misery from this world one live performance at a time.” Alexa Dirks is a Juno Award winner with her former group Chic Gamine. Her first solo output with her 2017 debut EP, Lady in Mind, was very well-received and she went on to release her audacious debut full-length album Fear in September 2019. Fear is a deeply personal album bursting with ruminations on solitude, self-doubt, anxiety, and panic, all bundled up in that serene feeling that comes with an artist fully embracing their past and present self. It was nominated for a JUNO Award for Adult Alternative Album Of The Year and was longlisted for The Polaris Music Prize. It was one of Exclaim!’s Most Underrated Albums of the Year. It also spent 10 straight weeks as the #1 album in Canada on Earshot’s Top 50 chart.
