A near-lifelong musician who plays guitar, piano, and drums and started touring before she’d graduated high school, the Toronto-bred artist builds an elaborate sonic world around her detailed exploration of mental health, ultimately bringing even the most painful revelations to strangely radiant life.

Tackling raw accounts of depression and disassociation, anxiety and self-erasure, renforshort crystallized the concept for her full-length debut after creating its spellbinding final track, a vocoder-enhanced epic called “amelia.”

dear amelia features the 20-year-old alt-pop artist’s recent releases “moshpit,” “made for you,” “we’ll make this ok” featuring Travis Barker, “I miss myself,” and most recently “Julian, king of Manhattan”—an ode to Julian Casablancas, the lead singer of the iconic New York City based band The Strokes. She also got to work with her all-time favorite artist Jake Bugg on “let you down.”

renforshort will headline a North American tour this fall. Kicking off in her hometown of Toronto, ON, the tour will make stops at major markets including New York and Los Angeles. Joey Valance and Brae will support on all dates. renforshort will also perform at the already announced Riot Fest in Chicago and Firefly Festival in Dover, DE.
