Indie pop powerhouse Begonia launched into the Canadian music scene with her critically acclaimed 2017 EP Lady In Mind. Begonia received media praise, numerous awards, and two #1 songs on Canada’s CBC national radio chart. Yet to her fans, she felt like music’s best kept secret.
Begonia released her audacious debut LP Fear in September 2019. Fear was nominated for Adult Alternative album of the Year at the JUNOs, longlisted for the Polaris Prize, and spent 10 straight weeks as the #1 album on !earshot’s Top 50 chart. Two of her singles were named CBC Music Fan Favourites, and songs from the album have appeared in productions on Netflix & Oprah Winfrey Network. Begonia has been touring major festivals and playing to sold-out audiences at small clubs across North America.
Begonia was set to make her European touring debut in May 2020. Due to COVID-19, the remaining dates on Begonia’s Fear Tour were cancelled upon arrival in New York. Just two weeks earlier, cameras captured Begonia’s five consecutive sold-out shows in her hometown of Winnipeg. The explosive performances captured the imagination of a whole city, and The Fear Tour (Live) was streamed on New Year’s Eve 2021 as a concert film, and released in January 2021 as a live album.
