IsKwé’s latest single “Nobody Knows” (produced by Juno nominees The Darcys) is an in-your-face anthem with a stark vocal performance and powerful beat. “Nobody Knows” forces the spotlight on the more the 1200 missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada. IsKwé (pronounced iss-KWAY), a Cree/Dené/Irish songstress, was compelled to give her voice to this important issue after watching her community come together in both strength and sadness after the murder of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine.  With “Nobody Knows”, IsKwé wants to encourage others to speak up, not just for Indigenous women, but for ALL women.Called ‘One to Watch’ by The Grid TO and one of ’10 Canadian Musicians You Need to Know’ by CBC Music, IsKwé’s cross-cultural aesthetic is as striking as her tripped-out blend of soul. IsKwé’s debut album weaves together her Irish and Cree/Dene roots with trip-hop beats, left-field R&B, and traces of piano pop (Think Esthero meets Alicia Keys). Her debut record was nominated for Electronic/Dance Album of the Year at the 2014 Western Canadian Music Awards and single “Slack Jaw” was voted Regional Finalist in the 2014 CBC Searchlight Competition.

Nobody Knows

Lay me down now
Lay me to the ground
Lay me down now
Lay me down in the shade

I won’t be afraid,
No I won’t!
I won’t be afraid,
No I won’t!
I won’t be afraid,
Lay me down in the shade…

Nobody knows, nobody knows
Where we’ve been or where we go
Nobody knows, nobody knows
Where we’ve bee, or where we go
Nobody knows…

I won’t let you
I won’t let you
I won’t let you look away
Anymore

Lay me down in the shade

Nobody knows, nobody knows
Where we’ve been or where we go
Nobody knows, nobody knows
Where we’ve been, or where we go
Nobody knows…
