Alessia Cara (EP Entertainment/Def Jam)
5/9/15

WHAT IT IS: Hailing from Brampton, Ontario, Alessia has emerged with an amazing voice and her guitar in tow, ready to shake things up. Her debut single made major headway in the online stratosphere upon its premiere via Fader, and that’s only the beginning. Quickly pinpointed as “a defiant, clever rallying cry for the wallflowers and introverts,” according to Pitchfork, the 18-year-old goes way beyond her years with sharp lyricism and a seemingly effortless flow with her buzzing smash.
