Saffron A is a feminist musician based in Brantford, Ontario. She accompanies herself on tenor guitar and octave mandolin. Her music sits where emotion and intellect intersect, tackling themes of sexual violence, trauma, mental health and empowerment with sensitivity and strength. Justin Nordell of the Philadelphia Folksong Society describes her music as “painting deep, dark, verbal portraits with strokes of wit and authenticity that belie her years”. Saffron A embodies the raw honesty of Janis Ian, the phrasing of Courtney Barnett and the emotional range of Mitski.
