Purna is an Indo-Canadian producer, mix engineer, songwriter, holistic artist developer, and artist from Montreal, Canada. Her debut single, "Chemical Romance," released in January 2021, is an alluring indie rock concoction of Garbage and the Goo Goo Dolls, with the sweetness of Tegan & Sara and Lights. She addresses moving into and healing from abusive relationships and vocal disability.
With 12 years of experience, Purna has given workshops with FACTOR Canada, MaMA Festival & Convention France, and Rock Camp for Girls Montreal. She sat on the Board of Directors and Inclusion Committee at the English Language Artist Network Quebec. She is also a Juror for FACTOR. She was also the sound engineer for a music video, "I Shot the Monkey" by Mackenzie 1st, which received rotation on MuchMusic, MusiquePlus and MTV.
An inclusion advocate in the music industry since 2009, Purna creates awareness and work opportunities via her projects for underrepresented individuals, including women, LGBT, differently-abled, etc. She encourages ethnic diversity, representing her own background using India’s national animal, the peacock, in her logo.
In 2021, Purna is focused on creating and releasing her first two singles as an artist (and taking on the roles of producer/mix engineer when viable), mix engineering for artists who use live instruments (pop, rock, indie, folk, acoustic, country), and developing online courses about essential music business skills as well as working with artists one on one for her holistic artist development services.
