about

IsKwé's latest single "Nobody Knows" (produced by Juno nominees The Darcys) is an in-your-face anthem with a stark vocal performance and powerful beat. Poignant lyrics, "I won't be afraid" and "I won't let you look away anymore" show IsKwé's passion for creating music that is both sonically captivating and culturally relevant.

"Nobody Knows" forces the spotlight on the more the 1200 missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada. IsKwé (pronounced iss-KWAY), a Cree/Dené/Irish songstress, was compelled to give her voice to this important issue after watching her community come together in both strength and sadness after the murder of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine. With "Nobody Knows", IsKwé wants to encourage others to speak up, not just for indigenous women, but for ALL women.

lyrics

Lay me down now
Lay me to the ground
Lay me down now
Lay me down in the shade

I won't be afraid
No I won't
I won't be afraid
No I won't
I won't be afraid
Lay me down in the shade

And nobody knows, nobody knows
Where we've been or where we go
And nobody knows, nobody knows
Where we've been or where we go
Nobody knows
Nobody knows

I won't let you
I won't let you
I won't let you look away anymore
