Ciel has used every ounce of influence created by her career to advocate for the safety and presence of women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community. Her undying efforts have significantly raised the safety standards of underground parties in Canada and have played a key role in the music community enforcing a 0 tolerance policy against individuals who have abused others. 

After making her Boiler Room debut with a heady & kinetic set last August in Toronto, she's continued to make waves as one of the newest additions to Discwoman’s roster, touted by Mixmag, RA, Crack, and RBMA as one to watch, all of which followed her superb debut release on Shanti Celeste’s Peach Discs in 2017.
