Spotlight Artist: Bif Naked

Our first spotlight artist, Bif Naked.

Bif Naked is a Juno Award-winning, multi-platinum record selling, Canadian rock singer-songwriter, poet, cartoonist, and actress. She was born in India and raised by her adoptive parents in Lexington, KY before moving to Canada in her teen years.

The name Bif started as a nickname based off the mispronunciation of her real name, Beth. She was diagnosed with a heart aneurysm, but corrective surgery was ruled out. Her song “Everyday,” from her album Superbeautifulmonster, is in part a response to that experience. Bif married Vancouver Sun sports writer Ian Walker in a traditional church ceremony in Vancouver on September 29, 2007. In January 2008, she announced that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, and underwent a lumpectomy and chemotherapy.

Here are just some of her songs that I enjoy:
