Yessica Woahneil is a soft electric/indie folk artist from London, Ontario. She’s been experimenting with her sound for the last decade, heavily influenced by the raw and honest melodies of Bjork, Cat Power, Regina Spektor, Bob Dylan, Laura Marling, Fiona Apple, and Coeur de Pirate. Her debut album Cheekbone dives past the exterior and digs into the soul. Recorded and mixed in London at The Sugar Shack by Simon Larochette (Single Mothers, Olenka & the Autumn Lovers) she has performed at various venues in Southern Ontario.
