Wild Black is the newest musical project by Elsa Gebremichael. You might recognize her from bands such as We Were Lovers and The Radiation Flowers and if you’re local to Saskatoon (her hometown), you also know her as a mentor and organizer at Girls Rock Camp Saskatoon - a music creation, performance and social justice camp for girls and gender non-conforming youth. And if you’ve never heard of her, keep reading!
In her previous projects Elsa has toured throughout Europe and North America, showcased at festivals such as SXSW, NXNE, HPX, CMW, CMJ and BIME in Spain, has opened for Tegan and Sara, Metric, Janelle Monae, was nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award for Pop Recording of the Year and played at the first Afropunk Music Festival in NYC. Having played many different genres and been influenced by different styles of music throughout her life - from various forms of Rock to Pop to Disco and Soul / RnB - it’s no doubt the birth of Wild Black is a culminating moment in Elsa’s eclectic musical journey.
Elsa recently moved to Toronto to explore new life experiences and decided to start her first solo music project, Wild Black. Since her arrival to the big city, she has solidified music collaborations, has gone to LA to co-write and shoot a video, released her debut single and video release ‘Wild & Free’ featuring Tamil Toronto artist Shan Vincent De Paul and was recently awarded by Prism Prize x Canadian Academy x RBCMusic the MVP Project (along with Jessie Reyez, Sean Leon, Milk & Bone and Jeremy Dutcher) to make a video for her upcoming single Moon Star Lover.
Wild Black is excited to share more new music and continue writing songs for her debut album due out in 2020. Stay close. xx
