Introduction and recap from HoP Executive Director and CKCU Program Director
Squerl Noir is a songwriter, rapper and beatmaker based in Ottawa. His uniqueness stems from his percussive rap that he mixes with different sounds, flirting with indie, alternative music and skateboard culture. Through his writing, he oscillates between delicacy and virulence, offering you roses between powerful punchlines.
He began by making his mark anonymously in Ottawa's open-mic scene. Making his name step by step, soon to be opening for Loud, Alaclair Ensemble, KNLO and Clay and Friends and more. Since then, Western-Canadian rapper, Shawn Jobin, took him on as his hype man and will allow Squerl to open for his fall tour in Winnipeg, Quebec, Montreal and Ottawa with artists like Sam Faye and D-Track, Taktika and Sans Pression.

Rick & Julie, hosts of "Indie City Madness" (Mondays at 5PM on CKCU) spoke with Squerl Noir last week, check it out....
