“Twin Flames wowed the audience with their powerful songwriting. The strength of their set and their music in general” - Exclaim Magazine
Twin Flames build bridges across cultures, continents, and styles, and have been celebrated internationally. This, alongside their substantial body of work, make it clear that they have something special going on. In just seven years of recording and performing as Twin Flames, the duo has accumulated 43 music awards and nominations.
Twin Flames offer a memorable show with the perfect blend of music, comedy and thought-provoking stories. Their synchronicity and love shine through at every show.
Recipients of 4 Canadian Folk Music Awards, 3 Native American Music Awards, 3 Summer Solstice Indigenous Music Awards and the 2022 Capital Music Award (Group of the year.) Jaaji and Chelsey met on-set during the filming of APTN's TAM in 2014. In 2015 they created the band Twin Flames.
Indie rock, synth rock, and folk pop are just a few of the labels critics have assigned to the music of Twin Flames. Their unique style and sound make it difficult to narrow their work to a single genre.
Twin Flames create sonic soundscapes using Indigenous spirit flutes, traditional drums, and western instruments. They craft enticing musical arrangements, standout harmonies, and beautiful rhythmic patterns. The result is a warm, perfect blend of sounds. In addition, Twin Flames shares a genuine love for songwriting that stands out lyrically and melodically for the world to hear.
From the beginning, this husband and wife duo has chosen to let their music speak for itself. Jaaji is Inuk from Nunavik and Mohawk from Kahnawake and Chelsey June is a Settler (with Algonquin, Métis, Cree heritage) who write songs delivered through a mix of English, French and Inuttitut.
Chelsey June and Jaaji have shared the stage with many session musicians, but the band, at its core, is made up of Chelsey and Jaaji. A revered powerhouse couple well on their way to becoming a Canadian household name, the sky seems to be no limit for this pair.
