Sparxsea blends acoustic instrumentation and down-tempo beats with an adroit lyricism and modern folk sense to create a sound entirely her own. In tradition of cross-genre acts such as Postal Service, Sufjan Stevens, and Colbie Caillat, Sparxsea's music weaves between intimate anthems and inspiriting psalms that deal with hard hitting topics as it captures the essence of healing and salvation.
On her 2018 debut EP, SHINE, Sparxsea navigates accepting the loss of her mother to an opiate and alcohol overdose in 2011. This rise from darkness is a theme in Sparxsea's music, and it has helped her songs find life in every corner of the globe. Her songs and videos are being streamed in over fifty countries and have gained notable exposure in the UK, Japan, Russia, Germany, France and of course Canada and the US, to name a few.
Sparxsea got her professional launch when tracks "On The Sea" and "Painters" were featured on the compilation "Naked & Free" (Penumbra Recordings, 2015). Her recent single, "Don't Let The Fire Die", is featured on the 2019 Damnationland Soundtrack and was the title track at the film festival.
Sparxsea is currently in the studio working on her debut full length record, entitled "On The Sea". The album is being co-produced by Will Holland (Pixies, Fall Out Boy, Dead Can Dance) and Will Bradford (SeepeopleS, Nth Power, TheWorst), and is being recorded at the legendary Chillhouse Studios in Boston, MA.
"Little Wooden Boat", the first single from the album, will be released on May 15, 2020.
