A true showpony at heart, Lynx Chase has always been passionate about movement and performance arts. Over the years, they have trained in a variety of disciplines ranging from Aerial Hoop, Silks, Contortion, Partner Acrobatics, Bellydance & Capoeira; however it wasn’t until they dove deep into Pole Dancing in 2012 that they found their true vocation. Lynx has been professionally teaching in Vancouver since 2015 and has also showcased their gravity defying acts at various events and festivals across the province such as Retro Strip Show, Queer Arts Festival, Transform Cabaret, Vancouver Mural Festival, Bass Coast and Shambhala. It is their hope to continue to share their craft with the world by demonstrating the strength, sensuality, artistry and grace that goes hand in hand with the art of pole, striptease and erotic dance.
NIMKISH is a Kwakwaka’wakw/Cree singer/songwriter based in Vancouver. She writes from a personal place of the trials of love and heartbreak. Her sound is a smooth blend of Pop and Future Bass with hints of layered R&B production.
NIMKISH’s debut EP “Heartbreak On The Coast” shares her experience of falling for somebody of the same sex for the first time. She takes you with her as she shares her story of falling in love, treading new waters, the confusion, and eventually the pain of letting go. She aspires to be a relatable artist, and that her music can speak to people in a way that will help them get through similar situations.
NIMKISH has graduated from Langara’s Intensive Singer/Songwriter program and currently attends Nimbus School Of Recording & Media where she has taken various music related courses and spends the time developing as an artist. Her favourite part of the musical process is collaboration and lyricism. She has always been a writer, but did not begin turning her poetry writing skills into music until about 3 years ago when she discovered her passion for music was more than just a hobby.
If NIMKISH is not in the studio recording and creating, she is out and about in Vancouver performing live and sharing her songs with others. She has been included on the lineup of festivals such as The Talking Stick Festival (2016/2017) and The Kanata Festival (2017).
