First Listen Fridays: Kelly Fraser

Another Friday, another First Listen! This week, we turn our microphone to the North and interview Nunavut pop artist Kelly Fraser.

Hailing from a small community of 1,000 people, Kelly first gained recognition back in 2013 when her Inuktitut version of Rihanna’s Diamonds went viral (239,000 views and counting!). She has since gained a loyal following and put her platform to good use, advocating for Indigenous rights and educating people about life in the North.

On the latest episode of First Listen Fridays, Kelly talks about the Inuit legend that inspired her new album and sharing her culture through music. You’ll also get a first listen to her unreleased track, Complaining.

You can also download episodes and subscribe to the DD Podcast on iTunes.

 To learn more about Kelly Fraser, check out her Spotlight and Xposed episodes.
