Bvitae

Bvitae is a Calgary AB based vocalist, singer/songwriter, producer and performing artist. Her diverse, life-long influences range from jazz and traditional East African folk music to the modern realms of jungle and drum and bass.
With songwriting and performance techniques that toggle bravely between both popular and more experimental methods, her works have received support from such influential figures as Chris Blu Mar Ten, creative design duo and long-time Bjork collaborators "M/M Paris" as well as BBC Radio One program host and tastemaker, Benji B.

Bringing the art of delivery back to the foundations of musical expression is Bvitae's modus operandi. Her ear for envelope pushing productions and harmonies has led to stunning collaborations with notable musicians including the late Greensboro NC native and beat-maker DFLN; Grammy award-winning songwriter, producer and Alicia Keys collaborator Illangelo, Los Angeles based Wedidit Collective member and Grammy award-winning composer Juj, world renown poet/spoken word artist Ian Keteku, and Vancouver based footwork dj/producer Ganjoid.

Her captivating and ferocious stage presence has placed Bvitae on recurrent guest-emcee and hostess duty for bustling Calgary area Drum and Bass weekly club night, Rinse, during the peak of its popularity as the city's club night destination for die-hard d'n'b enthusiasts, performing alongside artists like Bryan G and Bachelors of Science among others. In 2018, Bvitae became an official member of the DnB Girls; a prestigious collective of femme-identifying D n' B artists, djs, and producers from across North America. Several other guest appearances by Bvitae at various hip hop and drum and bass events around Calgary as an up-and-coming lyricist & emcee have inspired fellow local artists to follow suit as she continues to spark the interest of producers, promoters and music connoisseurs both at home and worldwide. Also a naturally inclined illustrator, instrumentalist, writer, poet, radio personality and dancer, Bvitae represents and explores through various art forms the endless possibilities that creativity nurtures.
