Neema Bio

Français

World traveler, former First Nation community manager, mentored by Leonard Cohen, Neema brings a lot of living to the stories she sets to beguiling contemporary folk music.  And she’s already attracted plenty of big name attention:  backing vocal support from Emmylou Harris; production help from Pierre Marchand and Daryl Johnson; opening slots for Elton John, Jeff Beck, Joe Cocker, Jesse Winchester, Lyle Lovett and Cyndi Lauper, and the aforementioned mentorship of a Canadian legend.

Her third studio album, Painting My Wall Gold was released March 4, 2016. It was recorded while Neema was pregnant with her son, and produced with Daryl Johnson (Daniel Lanois) and Mark Howard (Bob Dylan, The Wailin Jennys). It opens with Neema’s mettā song, inspired by Buddhist metta meditation, a practice of wishing love and kindness to those around you, which features performance by Emmylou Harris.

Painting My Wall Gold is a beautiful, sophisticated, globally-infused, and electronically-enhanced album of modern folk music that draws heavily on themes of acceptance and equanimity. Neema’s lyrics, poetic in their ambiguity and sprinkled with visual metaphors and spiritual allusions, transcend the personal triumphs and tragedies that gave them life, evoking instead the raw emotional essence of the situations that inspired them.

Her second album Watching You Think was released in June 2010 and was produced with Leonard Cohen and long-time Sarah McLachlan collaborator Pierre Marchand. The Globe and Mail called it “A stunner.” Cohen also drew a portrait of her as the album’s cover and has said of her “in the midst of all the static, a voice of true feeling arises – a rare event”.
