Vox Rea


What’s the secret behind a long history of successful sibling bands? Vulnerability. Sisters
Kate and Lauren Kurdyak take this to heart with Vox Rea, a project defined by its intimate
portrayal of the complexities of the human experience. Raised in Vancouver BC, they spent their
childhood learning music from their grandmother, a piano teacher, librarian and choir conductor
who planted the seeds for a lifelong obsession with the arts.
In 2022, Vox Rea released their eponymous album. Steeped in layers of vocal harmony
and synthesizers, the album’s lush sonic landscape marked an ode to existential dread and
introduced the band as “noir pop philosophers pondering the big questions that keep you up at
night.” (The Georgia Straight)
With influences that range from Florence + the Machine to Friedrich Nietzsche, Vox Rea
focuses on art as an experience as opposed to a product. “The project's comprehensive aesthetic
is very Through the Looking-Glass; the kind of brooding, cinematic lushness that might start
crackling out of an antique radio or relinquish a forest nymph from several lifetimes trapped
inside a haunted jewelry box.” (EXCLAIM)
Since the release of their first single “Dose Me Up” in 2020, Vox Rea has garnered over
1m streams on Spotify and their music has been added to various editorial playlists including
New Music Friday Canada, Indie All Stars, and Fresh Finds. Their songs have been played on
BBC Radio6, Sirius XM’s The Verge, and CBC. Their single “Damn (Unstuck)” was featured on
the cover of Folk & Friends and made Spotify’s Top Folk Songs of 2021. Their music has also
found its way into the world of television, including syncs on shows like Netflix’s Sweet
Magnolias and Orphan Black.
The sister duo tours extensively across North America, the UK and Europe bringing their
captivating live show to an impressive roster of festivals including SXSW, Reeperbahn, Treefort
Music Fest, Tallinn Music Week, Laketown Shakedown, Rifflandia and Capitol Hill Block Party.
With a brand new album slated for release in the summer alongside showcases at The Great
Escape and FOCUS Wales, 2024 looks to be their biggest year yet.
