If you’re a fan of musicians that have a sense of drama to their music that makes you feel unstoppable as their enticing vocals soar higher than the birds in the sky then the rising Canadian musician POESY is someone who you’re going to want to check out.

Her heroic alt pop production enhances this message even further with the somber choruses building up to the larger than life chorus that comes and goes but leaves a long lasting impression on you that surpasses the length of the track.
