Feeding the Fires of Change

For the last three years, Canadian singer-songwriter Kinnie Starr has been on a slow path of recovery from a severe brain injury she experienced following a car accident. Starr doesn’t remember much from that day back in April 2015, but the accident continues to affect her day-to-day life, including her work as a musician.

Fair-skinned girls who want mainstream acceptance aren’t singing about gender politics or First Nations’ issues, either, but that’s exactly what makes Kinnie Starr stand out.

Favourably compared in the music press to Lauryn Hill, PJ Harvey and Ani Difranco, Starr has spent her 10-year career on the edge of mainstream success. Her first album came out in 1996 and she has worked steadily—albeit often independently—since then.
