Call it prairie noir or Canadiana desert rock: Toronto’s Abigail Lapell sings haunting, gorgeous modern folk songs. Her solo albums have won two Canadian Folk Music Awards—English Songwriter of the Year and Contemporary Album of the Year—reaching #1 on Canadian folk radio and over 13 million Spotify streams. Lapell tours widely across Canada, the U.S. and Europe, performing on vocals, piano, harmonica, and finger-style guitar. Getaway, her ambitious third release, is out now.
