Indie rock, synth rock, and folk-pop are just a few of the ways critics have tried to label the music of Twin Flames. It isn’t an easy task and really, labels only serve the needs of those who choose to employ them. From the beginning, husband and wife duo Chelsey June and Jaaji have chosen to let their music speak for itself and when considered alongside the 30+ various music awards and nominations they have accumulated over the past seven years as Twin Flames, it is obvious they have something special going on.
Jaaji, (Inuk from Nunaivik and Mohawk Kanien’kehá:ka from Kahnawake) and Chelsey June, Indigenous (Métis, Algonquin, Cree and settler heritage) from Ottawa, are part of an Indigenous renaissance. Their cultural backgrounds span Canada’s geography and their songs, delivered through a mix of English, French and Inuttitut, have helped them earn a unique place among contemporary music makers from coast to coast to coast. Their humour on stage serves as welcome comedic relief when discussing tougher issues. They possess impeccable storytelling skills and allow audiences to feel a truly human connection.
Twin Flames Build bridges across cultures, continents, and styles and are long celebrated for their sonic landscapes spanning Canada and the Arctic. Twin Flames, brings together a richness of personal history and musical experience, 4x Canadian Folk Music Award recipients, 3x Native American Music Award Winners, 3x Summer Solstice Indigenous Music Awards Winners. Their songs tell stories of courage and survival.
