Episode 227 - Platinum selling Canadian pop star Kiesza is a former Navy sniper (you read that right!), ballet dancer, beauty queen and, in more ways than one, the Calgary-raised singer and songwriter is unique. She has written for Rihanna and Jennifer Hudson, worked with Duran Duran and collaborated with Skrillex, Pitbull and Diplo. Her debut album, Sound of A Woman, sold more than a million copies and then the two-time JUNO Award seemingly vanished overnight.

Hit by a taxi in her adopted hometown of Toronto in the summer of 2017, Kiesza initially thought she had escaped lightly with just a bang to the head and a busted wrist. It wasn’t until the following day that her head began to swell and the balance on the left side of her body went. Tests revealed that electrical pathways to one side of her brain had shut down and the following years meant a gruelling road to recovery for Kiesza as she recovered from the brain injury.

2020 marks a rebirth for Kiesza. After spending 2 years recovering from her injuries she is back and ready to embrace the female pop landscape with a bunch of incredibly catchy tunes.
