Montréal-born, Toronto-based singer-songwriter Briannah Donolo aka Rêve (“dream” in French) was discovered when her performance of the national anthem at a Canadiens de Montréal game went viral. The last few years have seen her develop her sound with the likes of Joel Stouffer (Carly Rae Jepsen, Dragonette), among others.

Rêve intends to create the soundscape that lives in her mind: playful, pop, and R&B influenced dance music that draws its inspirations from the heydays of 90s sophisticated Euro sound. Her major-label signing with Universal Music Canada acts as the first collaboration with Montreal production duo Banx & Ranx (Dua Lipa, Sean Paul, BLACKPINK and more), also co-signed to UMC.  Rêve has flourished and cemented herself as one of this generation’s most promising dance-pop singer-songwriters. Since making her label debut in 2021, Rêve has amassed over 155 million combined global streams across an already bustling repertoire of hits. 

These include her debut track “Still Dancing” to the irresistible “SKIN 2 SKIN”, the flirtatious “Tongue” which was used during Canada’s Drag Race episode that she was a guest judge. The #1 US Dance radio hit with “Whitney” which peaked top 5 at Canadian radio, #5 song overall on Canadian radio and #1 Cancon song overall in 2023, as well as announced as part of Just Dance 2024.  Rêve’s multi-platinum and award-winning track “CTRL + ALT + DEL”, was featured on Canada’s Drag Race. 

Rêve has garnered awards such as SOCAN Dance Music Award in 2022, SOCAN Breakthrough Award in 2023 and JUNO Dance Recording of the Year in 2023. The latest releases including club anthem, “Big Boom”, free spirited single “Contemporary Love” and empowering track “Breaking Up With Jesus” have all been featured on Jack Saunders Show from BBC Radio 1. The infectious radio single, “Contemporary Love” peaked at #11 at Canadian Top 40 radio. Rêve is the #6 artist at radio in 2023, the #1 Cancon artist overall for 2023.
