Due to circumstances beyond the artist or ROOTSandBLUES control, Witch Prophet has made the difficult decision to cancel the Sunday, August 21 workshop and featured performance. We apologize for any inconvenience.
August 21 Schedule Change
- Shaela Miller will fill in at 7PM on the Barn Stage
- Tanika Charles set will move from 7PM to 7:45PM
- Son Rompe Pera will replace Witch Prophet’s 1:15PM workshop with Five Alarm Funk
Making her first appearance at ROOTSandBLUES, Witch Prophet is a queer, East African, singer-songwriter, and the Co-CEO of Heart Lake Records. She provides her fans with a soundscape of vocal layers, loops, raps, and harmonies on a bed of hip-hop, jazz, and soul-inspired beats. Think Erykah Badu meets Lauryn Hill meets Portishead. She finds depth and connection in creating music as a portal for self-growth and discovery, as she navigates and better understands her cultural and queer identity.
Her vocals have appeared on Shad’s “Flying Colours” LP (2013), 2009’s Polaris Prize winner Fucked Up’s LP “Dose your Dreams” (2018), as well as DillanPonders newest album “Because We’re Alive” (2020).
She has toured Europe independently twice; playing shows in Paris, Amsterdam, London, and Berlin, as well as performed at North American and European music festivals like: Black Women Rock, New Skool Rules, Soul Of Brooklyn, Allied Media Conference, Montreal Jazz Festival, Sappy Fest, Electric Eclectic, Summerworks, Ottawa Capital Pride, Pride Toronto, Pop Montreal, Halifax Pop Explosion and so many more!
