“Five Minutes With” Alternative R&B singer-songwriter, BAZELLE

BAZELLE may be just what the music industry has needed. A bit of an old-school sound to the new wave of songwriting. Specializing in quirky pop culture references, BAZELLE has satirical songwriting down to a science. She fuses her quick-wit with a fresh alternative r&b vibe to create empowering anthems for the ‘girls, gays and theys’. BAZELLE is not afraid to use her tunes to shed light on topics such as body positivity, sexual freedom and feminism. She draws from her inspirations, Stevie Wonder and SZA, to create a catalogue of groovy beats with a laugh.

BAZELLE is an independent artist originally from Kitchener, ON, but has been based out of Banff, AB since the pandemic. She has been an avid songwriter since childhood and recently graduated from Durham College’s Music Business Administration program in the spring of 2020. Upon completing her post-secondary studies, BAZELLE has recently completed her first project, I’m sorry I faked it, alongside her co-creator and producer BertsBeatz. Their debut EP is set to release February 4, 2022, and will feature seven original tracks; three of which were produced by BAZELLE herself. The duo is ready for the Canadian industry to get a taste of what the next generation has to offer.
