Edzi’u is a Two Spirit Tahltan and inland Tlingit sound artist, songwriter, and composer. They were born in the Yukon and raised in Whitehorse, YT, spending a large part of that time in their traditional territory of Dease Lake, BC.

With the support of Creative BC's Vancouver Music Fund Demo program, Edzi'u will be working with producer, engineer, mixer, sound designer, and songwriter Lin Gardiner. Together, they will work on technical areas such as vocal production, arrangement, and mixing, as well as marketing and promotion.

"I feel I am currently on my way to having and building the type of career I want, and would like to continue expanding and growing within the spaces I've begun to work within," says Edzi'u. 
Edzi’u has been performing nationally for the better part of ten years, in festivals, galleries and living rooms. Currently their art practice centres on weaving electronic soundscapes with audio manipulation, while drawing on classical songwriting elements. Their music and sound installations have been featured on CBC Radio Reclaimed, Talking Stick festival, shown in Tkaronto’s film festival imagineNATIVE 2018 as well as 2019, while debuting internationally in 2019 at the Document Film Festival in Glasgow, Scotland.
