The album release party was held on September 25th at The Royal Albert Arms Hotel, and was the first chance that many fans got to hear the tracks, something Vezina says will definitely give them a deeper understanding of who she is.
“These are pages from my journal, it’s personal and parts of my story; I hope they feel my sincerity and vulnerability,” Vezina says. “My music is an authentic piece of me. I create from a place deep within my Spirit and allow what’s inside of me out. I hope my fans can feel that.”
Following the show, Vezina embarked on the Indigenous Celebration Tour through the Manitoba Arts Network with 10 tour dates set throughout Indigenous communities in the province.
