Alexandra Babiak is a singer songwriter from Toronto, Ontario. Her songs are reflective and have an ethereal quality to them. Her songs are a thoughtful glimpse into her memories, losses and desires. It all unfolds as if in a dream. Alexandra’s cinematic, invitational narrative melodies creep under your skin- whispering lyrics that are endlessly relatable. Her musical narratives explore caves of loss and grief with rare openness.
