"Auresia is one of Canada’s top reggae talent. Her melodic voice and original style stand her apart from the rest. She will be creating big waves with her new tunes" --Loralie Bromby, Rize Productions, Montreal, Quebec

Risin'!, le nouvel album d’Auresia, regorge de mélodies éloquentes sous le thème de l’amour sous toutes ses formes : l’amour exalté, risqué, l’amour à distance, planétaire ou même celui qu’on partage tous… l’amour du chocolat!

Grâce à des collaborations avec des musiciens d’origines diverses, Risin'! est un amalgame de rythmes et de saveurs du monde qui plaira au plus exigeant des mélomanes. Auresia entrelace parfaitement le reggae, le RnB, la salsa, le dancehall, le reggaeton, le rock et même des éléments de flamenco. Avec Risin'!, elle présente un son épuré et encore plus défini que son album éponyme, paru en 2008.
D’origine ukrainienne, elle a grandi à Edmonton avant de s’installer à Montréal. Auresia est une auteure-compositeure-interprète multi-instrumentaliste qui chante en trois langues, soit en anglais, espagnol et français. Dès l’âge de trois ans, elle débute le chant et charme son auditoire par sa voix angélique. Elle y ajoute aujourd’hui des mélodies complexes et des harmonies accrocheuses, qui se combinent dans un mélange musical sincère et éclectique.
Sur la scène mondiale, Auresia continue sans cesse à captiver de nouveaux fans, tout particulièrement en Amérique du sud. Elle a notamment participé au festival Omega Unity Fest (Medellin, Colombie), aux Reggae Fest de Montréal et d’Ottawa, Fringe Fest, Festival Acadien, Canadian Music Week… Elle a partagé la scène avec, entre autres, Shaggy, Kymani Marley, Sister Nancy et Tanya Stephens.
Sa chanson « High », après seulement 2 semaines, se hisse au #16 du top 50 des correspondants anglophones, palmarès de l’ADISQ.
