We are officially one week away from Y57: Unplugged, and we hope you are just as excited as we are about the show!
As we prepare for the show, we wanted to take the time to introduce you to our performers!
Meet our headliner, Nikita!

We’re excited to have Nikita join us at Y57: Unplugged as our headliner! Nikita came by to visit us at the station to perform live for us as well as talk about her most recent release, Games!
Nikita is a talented performer who has won awards such as Best New Talent at the International Portuguese Music Awards (2017), MTV’s Cover of the Month (February 2017), the Canada-wide MusiCounts Fred Sherratt Award (2014). Nikita’s music is described as having folky melodies mixed with honest lyrics and strong vocals, and she has performed at various venues and festivals. She has even shared the stage with country superstar Keith Urban!
Be sure to come to Y57: Unplugged to hear Nikita perform some songs off her recent EP, Games, as well as other music! You can find her on Facebook and on Soundcloud so that you can stay up to date with upcoming music releases and performances!
Meet our opening act, Adam Janis!
Adam Janis came by to visit us in the studio back in February, and we fell in love with the power in his voice, his beautifully arranged songs and the production of his music. When he came to chat with us, he talked to us about four EPs that he is looking to release, based on colours and emotions. To date, he has released two: Yellow (2015) and Blue (2016).
We’re excited to have Adam perform and share his talents and music with you! Rumour has it that this is his first solo show ever, and we’re so lucky to have him! If we’re extra lucky, we might even get a duet or two with one of our very own hosts of Y57, Mirelle!
