Winners of a Canadian Folk Music Award, a Toronto Independent Music Award, the Canadian Songwriting Competition (Under 18 category) and the Slaight Music It’s Your Shot award, Moscow Apartment has rapidly become one of the most exciting emerging bands in Canadian folk and indie music. At just 15 and 16-years-old, Brighid Fry and Pascale Padilla are multi-instrumentalist songwriters turning heads with their mature and unforgettable songs which are played regularly on CBC, getting used in the soundtracks for film and which have broken through on U.S radio, including NPR. They have also made a name for themselves as stellar live performers, gaining fans in music circles across genres. They were invited by The Good Lovelies to tour with them across Western Canada and count Leah Fay (July Talk), Amy Cole (Rural Alberta Advantage), Kevin Drew (Broken Social Scene) and Kinnie Starr as fans. The high schoolers, who formed their duo in early 2017, have a strong work ethic and an enviable touring record. They have played festivals across Canada (Winnipeg Folk, Waterstock, Summerfolk, Shelter Valley, Hillside, Camp Wavelength, Winterfolk, Canada Music Week, CBC Music Fest, Windsong, Halifax Urban Folk Festival ) opened for Ben Caplan, Ron Hawkins, Lowest of the Low and appeared on lineups alongside Serena Ryder, Whitehorse, Ruth B, The Fortunate Ones, Tim Baker (Hey Rosetta) and Hawksley Workman.
While their debut EP released in the Fall of 2017 continues to gain a following in Canada, the U.S and Europe, Moscow Apartment are releasing new singles (June 2018 and November 2018) and working on a sophomore EP which will come out via Slaight Music and Hidden Pony Records in the Spring of 2019
