With her new album, Sacred Seed, Pura Fé celebrates the roots of First Nation blues. Mixing original compositions deeply rooted in the pre-blues First Nation tradition with songs displaying the humanistic concerns of their author (as well as two classics, Duke Ellington’s “In a Sentimental Mood” and Norman Greenbaum’s “Spirit in the Sky”), Pura Fé gives us the most intimate and adventurous music of her career.

Originally from the coastal Cree community of Fort Albany First Nation, off the coast of James Bay, Rosary Spence is a well-recognized Indigenous singer, steeped in time-honoured Aboriginal rhythms and styles. Spence prides herself as an established self-taught vocalist, but has also studied vocals at The Banff Centre For The Arts, and has participated in vocal training with a diverse group of artists at various times throughout her professional career.
