Haleluya Hailu (and the fake friends)


Celestial, sincere, youthful, and banging. Vancouver-raised singer-songwriter/producer and multi-instrumentalist ​​Haleluya Hailu has become a local musical staple in the indie scene. Hailu has managed to turn the stress and angst of growing up and not recognizing yourself into music that anyone could see themself in.

Beginning their musical journey in talent shows and theater productions, performing has always been a strong suit. Hailu’s involvement in the local Vancouver scene began when performing with the Icecream Truck collective, a group bringing local musicians to parks and beaches across all of Vancouver. Their theatricality on stage helped them begin to create a name and face to go with her strong voice and ability to write and deliver pop hooks with ease.
