Portuguese-Canadian, multi-instrumentalist, Awna Teixeira is a member of Po'Girl, one of Canada's hardest working international touring acts. 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.
"A bag of riches from Po' Girl front-woman! "Teixeira's voice is a delightfully gentle instrument; like the elfin sister of Emmylou Harris and Stevie Nicks." 4/5 Americana UK 2012
"It is safe to say there is no one else quite like Awna, with her quirky take on roots music that combines highlonesome 'hillbilly' music with folk and probably more than a nod to her Portugese roots, the only addition that can really explain this unique rootsy amalgamate of beautiful sounds." 5/5 American Roots UK 2012
