Kwiat (kwai·uht) is a Métis Polish avant-pop artist heavily influenced by post-romanticism. With sophisticated vocals and elaborate piano melodies, the Winnipeg-based songstress captivates audiences through raw, intimate, and dramatic performances. Each song blossoms into its own lush and distinct sound while drawing inspiration from notable artists such as Fiona Apple, Japanese Breakfast, and Regina Spektor. Kwiat plans to make her official debut in the Fall of 2022.

Since 2020 Kwiat has participated in the SOCAN Foundation's Equity X Production Program, Canada Music Incubator’s AE West Program, the Women in Music X She Is The Music Emerging Talent Writing Camp, and Envision Management's Pathwaves Digital Literacy Incubator. She's an avid collaborator and actively creates opportunities for emerging artists through her project Songmiths (formerly the WCMA-nominated program Winnipeg Music Project). In recent years, Kwiat joined the juries for Polaris Music Prize, Prism Music Prize, Manitoba Arts Council, and more..
