Beatrice Deer is from the small, remote Inuit village of Quaqtaq, Nunavik, Quebec. Her first album “Just Bea” was awarded Best Inuit Cultural Album of 2005 at the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards. In 2010, her second album “Beatrice Deer” was well-received by a strong and growing fanbase, and was followed shortly by a lifelong dream of hers: to release a Christmas album. Deer’s grasp on Inuit culture is held dear to her heart. Encouragement and training among peers, and an inquisitive respect for the craft, led Beatrice to pursue throat singing. The members of the Beatrice Deer band are from Montreal, and have been together since 2010, performing regularly at various venues near and far.
