Born in Morocco and raised in the rural town of Carman, Manitoba, Faouzia is a talent to be reckoned with. Combining catchy pop rhythms, heartfelt lyrics, and powerhouse vocals, this young sensation could make Adele blush. Winner of the Grand Prize at La Chicane Électrique 2015 for her original song Mes Cicatrices, Faouzia switches seamlessly between composing songs in French and English, following her well-tuned instinct. It’s a good thing she does—her hit, Knock On My Door, is already in regular rotation on Canadian radio.
Influenced by hours spent listening to traditional Arabic music in her parents’ minivan, the songbird’s voice embodies a unique range, taking on subtle trills and stylings that combine effortlessly with contemporary pop hooks and Francophone lyrics. With a record in the works and performances booking daily, Faouzia’s star keeps shining brighter. You won’t be able to miss this up-and-coming artistic force.
