Aphrose is an independent soul music artist based in Toronto. Raised in the culturally diverse neighbourhoods of Scarborough, Aphrose’s musical tastes were shaped by all of the various genres present in her Trinidadian household -- obvious influences such as soul and gospel and also ranging from soca, calypso and reggae to Bollywood soundtracks and even country music. Aphrose combines powerful vocals with her love for live instrumentation, to create music that illustrates her reverence for soul icons such as Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder and also the influence of contemporary artists including Sza and Teyana Taylor.

She released her first single as Aphrose, 'The Middle' (produced by Scott McCannell, Giordan Postorino & Jim JR.) in June of 2017; followed by 'Move On' (produced by Scott McCannell) in February 2018. Her most recent single ‘Make Your Mark’ was released in January 2019; it was premiered exclusively on Earmilk Magazine, and featured as Song of the Week on CBC Radio’’s flagship afternoon drive-time Here & Now radio show.  She was also heard across Canada lending her vocal talents for a nationally televised Toronto Raptors commercial in support of the team’s inspiring 2019 championship run.

 

Aphrose introduced herself to hundreds of thousands of new fans singing to sold-out crowds as the tour opener for Canadian musical power couple Raine Maida (of Our Lady Peace) and Chantal Kreviazuk’s new collaborative project Moon vs Sun in 2018. Her 2019 debut album, Element, is  available on all major streaming platforms and has attained over 100,000 plays on Spotify.
