On August 18, come enjoy the smooth musical stylings of Billie Zizi and make your own stop motion animation with artist Stacey Cann.

If you’ve ever spiraled through the heaviness and lightness of love, then you can get behind Billie Zizi’s new album Moon of Honey (2016). This tour-de-force carries all the agonies and ecstasies of all those late nights spent alone in your room waiting for your lover to call. Her sound is heady mix of dirty-soul-indie-jazz-pop—and these tracks give off serious bedroom vibes.

Zizi’s work has a low-key obsessive quality. Her layered, cyclical sounds give the impression of someone whose thoughts are on repeat. Speaking about her process, Zizi remarks, “Looping is unwieldy…It can really go south on you. I’ve been lost in a terrifying loopland before.” Listening to Moon of Honey, there is nothing terrifying about this loopland—Zizi has brawled with her demons and created a lush country of sound out of them. Listen in and hear the sun filter in through the blinds.


Her current band includes Thom Bennet, Josh Mchan, and Cam Neufeld, with sometimes-appearances by Alex and Andi Vissia.

Stacey Cann is a multidisciplinary artist working in Edmonton, Alberta. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Print Media from Alberta College of Art and Design and a Master's of Arts in Art Education from Concordia University. She has shown her work across Canada and the United States, and taught at the Art Gallery of Alberta, Harcourt House Artist Run Centre and in the community.
