Part raw, street poet and soulful RnB singer, City Fidelia is an artist whose music and storytelling defies traditional labels.
An Ottawa native with Toronto has his home, and with NYC and LA frequent destinations, the rapper/- songwriter’s humble and grounded upbringing is naturally woven into the fabric of his music and the stories he tells through his art.
City’s ability to be vulnerable and authentic in his lyricism, telling stories about his own struggles and the unspoken nuances of modern life, is grounded in his goal to inspire inner-city youth to leave the path of hardship in order to pursue their dreams. City Fidelia spearheads Ensemble, a collective of creatives in music, fashion, and art working on a singular mission: to bring people together and teach that anything is possible through art.
City’s work ethic, focus, and lyricism have already paid off. His music has caught the ears of Malik Yusef (Kanye West’s longtime friend and member of G.O.O.D Music), who will be providing vocals on his upcoming project, and also legendary producer Timbaland, who is providing the production for City’s hot new single, “Fire”. City has also taken his music outside of North America, touring in Japan and collaborating on projects with Japanese producers (Avalanche).
City Fidelia has shared the stage with artists such as Obie Trice, Fabolous, Bow Wow, and A$AP Rocky, and much more, and has held his own slots at major festivals like Bluesfest (Ottawa) and Manifesto (To- ronto)..
