Awna Teixeira
Portuguese-Canadian, multi-instrumentalist, Awna Teixeira began her musical career in 2001 performing all over North America and writing songs with various bands before joining Po'Girl, one of Canada's hardest working international touring acts, in 2005. Over the course of creating five albums and seven years of solid-touring in 15 different countries, on 4 different continents, and playing between 200 and 250 shows a year, Allison Russell and Awna Teixeira have become the core of the highly-esteemed and internationally-recognized band, Po'Girl. Awna, while still working with Po'Girl, is currently embarking on her first solo project.

In her formative years, Awna toured and did street performances nationally with The Derby and The Red Eyed Rounders. She then teamed up with the all-girl, country-folk band Barley Wik with whom she released two full length albums, touring nationally for three years. Barley Wik won numerous Vancouver Island Music Awards including, "Album of the Year," "Most Listenable CD," and "Best Acoustic Act."

Upon meeting Allison Russell of Po'Girl, instant chemistry led to the start of a great, new musical adventure. Awna quickly packed her suitcase and began touring full-time with Po'Girl, first as their bass player and back-up vocalist, and quickly moving into accordion, banjo, guitar, ukulele, gutbucket bass, percussion and lead vocals. Awna first showcased her song writing abilities with Po'Girl on their 2007 album, "Home To You," with the beautifully heart-wrenching compositions "Old Mountain Line" and "Drive All Night."

Starting in 2012, Po'Girl decided to slow their touring schedule in order to pursue other musical projects. Inspired by her many years on the road, her Portuguese-Canadian heritage and her numerous international-touring experiences, Awna embarked on her first, long-awaited, solo project bringing together an incredible collection of songs in her album "Where The Darkness Goes." From the Portuguese-Fado inspired "Minha Querida" and "Velai Por Nos" to the deep soul of roots music with her claw- hammer style banjo on songs like "Stand Tall" and "In The Days," Awna's solo project takes you on a deeply satisfying musical journey.

On her 2012 solo release tour of the UK and Netherlands, Awna received amazing five-star reviews and was called the next "undisputed Queen of Roots Music," by No Depression. With her fantastic song-writing ability and compelling stage presence, Awna has been likened to such legends as Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton. Stay tuned for a wonderful year of great touring in 2013!
