Biography

Known for her airy voice and dreamy, synth pop, Munya is the stage name of Québécois musician Josie Boivin. Munya initially garnered attention in 2017 performing at the Pop Montreal music festival. The following year, she issued her debut EP, North Hatley. Raised in Saguenay in Quebec, Boivin took classical piano lessons growing up. It was while joking around in high school, imitating an opera singer, that her music teacher discovered she could sing. Opera instruction followed, as did several years studying jazz at the University of Montreal. However, looking to experience life, Boivin dropped out of college and spent several years working odd jobs, as well as playing keyboards and singing with other artists around Montreal. In September 2017, a friend invited her to play her own set at the Pop Montreal music fest. Having only written one song, she jump at the opportunity — quitting her day job, and moving in with her sister to write and record more music. Along with her Pop Montreal performance, the process resulted her debut EP, North Hatley, in May of 2018. Named after one of Boivin's favorite town's in Quebec, the EP featured the song "Des Bisous Partout." A second EP, Delmano, named for the Hotel Delmano in Williamsburg, arrived that October. A third EP in the trilogy was released in late 2018. ~ Matt Collar
