Canadian rapper and songwriter Eternia hails from the country’s capital, Ottawa. With a family background in music, she learned to play the piano, flute, and guitar growing up. She was introduced to hip-hop by her brother through the likes of LL Cool J, Public Enemy, N.W.A, and others. Eternia left home at age 15, dropped out of high school but eventually returned, and later enrolled in university to study journalism. She had found refuge in hip-hop and started rapping as a teenager in the mid-90s. A decade later she made a name for herself as one of Canada’s best lyricists and live performers. Her first full-length album, “It’s Called Life”, was released in 2005 and earned her a Juno Awards nomination for Best Rap Recording. She was nominated in the same category again for her 2010 album “At Last”, a collaborative project with producer Moss. In 2021, Eternia and Rel McCoy released a collaborative album, entitled “Free”. She has also released three mixtapes, “Where I Been – The Collection” (2005), “Where I’m At – The Setup” (2007), and “Get Caught Up” (2009). Additionally, Eternia is participating in community building programs as a mentor and advocate for mental health awareness and gender equality.
