Annie Sumi


Dancing on a line between imagination and reality, ethereal-folk artist Annie Sumi invites you into a familiar world. Like an inbound wind, her voice begins with a whisper and, gathering strength and purpose, it transforms into an airy howl. The songs take you to a place of quiet wonder, unspoken love, and serene landscapes. With support from the Ontario Arts Council, Sumi has shared these compositions with audiences across North America, the UK, and Central Europe. Since the release of her debut album in 2015, she has received nominations for “New/Emerging Artist of the Year” (Canadian Folk Music Awards, 2018), “Best Singer-Songwriter” (TIMAs, 2015), “Female Vocalist” (HMAs, 2016), and more. She will be releasing “Solastalgia”, her latest creation, this year–a reflection on the malleability of love and landscape.
