From Montreal, Canada, Chiiild has spent years honing a unique blend of pop, R&B, soul and jazz behind closed doors. Steeped in nostalgia and R&B and Psychedelia, Chiiild uses music to tell stories about diversity, ask questions about humanity, and unify people over shared personal experiences. “Musically, it’s about chasing a certain feeling that you had when growing up”, he says. Taking influence from music as diverse as D'Angelo, Tame Impala, Pink Floyd and Marvin Gaye, he has created an expansive timeless sound that is uniquely genre-bending yet still somehow reminiscent of something you’ve heard, or felt, before. Laced with the music set to define and introduce his sound to the world, Chiiild released his debut project, “Synthetic Soul” in early 2020 and then his debut album "Hope For Sale" in 2021 which aims to cover the whole human experience while diving into moments of love and life. Chiiild was chosen as one of Vevo DSCVR's Artists To Watch 2022 and 'Hope For Sale' was nominated for Alternative Album of the Year at the 2022 JUNO Awards. Additionally, Chiiild was the recipient of the High Fidelity Award at the 2022 Prism Prize. The best ain’t happen yet.
