So, who am I?
Born in Montreal on August 2nd 1997, Prisca Bieni Pange, 22, known as “Prisicila” and stage name “Priscila Bieni” is a Canadian RnB, Afrobeat-Dancehall fusion singer and songwriter of Angolan origin.
She gained interest in music when only 3 after receiving a piano as a birthday gift. Writing her first song at the young age of 8, she has never stopped since and today her songwriting skills reflect years of experience, a perfect union of striking messages, catchy and melodious sounds and intellectual wordplay. It wasn't however until she was 19 that Priscila recorded her first songs, "Blackout" and "Want You to Know" which both caught attention due to her voice similarity to Rihanna's while remaining unique.
Today Priscila has performed on numerous stages, including the renowned TheIscream's "Toronto R&B Sounds", being the first out of province artist to perform there. In May 2019, Priscila released “Summer Resolution” which although self-promoted, lead her to today having over 1k monthly listeners on Spotify.
Priscila’s music is inspired by her multicultural life experience, having lived in different countries, she speaks English, French, Portuguese and Spanish, which she uses in her songwriting. Her aspiration is to elevate her musical roots unto popular music.
In January 2020, Priscila was selected to be part of SOCAN’s Incubator for Creative Entrepreneurship, where she developed various music industry skills under the mentorship of notable names, namely Warner Chappell’s Vivian Barclay.
Priscila is also involved in dancing and acting, writing three plays in high school and directing them, two of which received first and second class grades at the Zimbabwean Deloitte National Arts Festival (2013). Judges were so impressed to know she was behind her school's performance that they personally wrote her a letter of recognition.
