A Podcast Conversation With ... Shawnee Kish

By Bill King


Edmonton-based Indigenous singer/songwriter Shawnee Kish has been making a name for herself since she stepped out onto the stage at 12. Since then, Kish has earned spots on Billboard's 2019 list of Musicians You Need To Know, MTV's list of Top Gender Bending Artists and CBC's Top 100 Playlist. In addition, she was named the 2020 winner of CBC's national talent search, Spotlight, and is a 2021 Allan Slaight Juno Master Class winner, a prestigious program that sees four emerging Canadian musicians each year receive specialized advancement sessions.

As a performer, she has shared a stage with international talents such as Lady Gaga, Madonna and Alicia Keys. Kish uses her music to empower and inspire youth, LGBT2Q+ and Indigenous youth. Her extensive work and involvement in these communities through national campaigns with organizations such as We Matter and Kids Help Phone confirm that her passion and career are driven by empowering young people.
