Based out of Montreal, Canada, Sheenah Ko is a multi instrumentalist and composer. Born of visual artists, her writing style has always been from a purely artistic approach, outside of the box and painting feelings and atmosphere in her music. Best known as a member of the Polaris-nominated Besnard Lakes, Sheenah has also been a member of, and/or contributor to over 20 other North American bands and projects.

As a solo artist, Sheenah's music is intended to swallow audiences into an entrancing journey where one can forget time and space. A huge, deep sound, she creates a certain mood and ambiance, bringing listeners into a trippy dreamlike state of "breathing" analogue synths, raw emotional vocals and driving beats. Accompanied by contemporary dancer and choreographer, Brittney Canda, they enchant entire venues with their emotionally-charged and intensely-captivating show.
