Akua, out of Montreal, has an amazing voice and is definitely carving her own lane. “Remote Soul” is how she describes her music and u must also listen to “Monsters” to understand. She is performing at this years SXSW Festival in Austin, TX but if you’re not able to catch that you can download Akua One’s Company album which is available on iTunes now!
