Combined with the soulful power of Tracey Chapman, the uniqueness of Bruno Mars and a voice that can silence a room, Nefe is a burgeoning Canadian talent that is sure to take the industry by storm in the coming years.
At 20 years of age, Nefe’s music has garnered the interest of Canada’s top industry executives including, Chris Taylor, Ivan Evidente of Universal Music, and Ron Lopata of Warner Music Canada. In addition to impressing these industry leaders, Nefe continues to impress established Canadian artists and music lovers including signed Sony artist Kira Isabella, Anthony Carone of the Arkells, and Craig Norris of CBC Radio.
In February of 2013, Nefe was invited to open for JUNO Award Winning Canadian artist K’Naan.
Born Sarah Jea Felker, Nefe is a singer/songwriter hailing from the small Southwestern Ontario city of Guelph. Adopting her name from Queen Nefertiti, Nefe stands to lead and empower woman and men to accept their real beauty, not succumbing to the pressures of perfection defined by today’s media culture.
Though Nefe’s soft spoken appearance illudes many, she is loud on the inside, with a rich soul, expressing her voice through her music.
Nefe is currently working towards releasing a much anticipated set of singles starting in July 2014.
