“You Don’t Even Know me is a reminder to myself and to everyone who hears this song that there are very few people that truly know who you are,” says Faouzia, “The negative opinions of others and the rumors that surround you ultimately mean nothing. You just need to take it with a grain of salt and keep being yourself because no matter what you do, people will have false perceptions of you.”
With millions of streams and a wide array of international press attention, Faouzia is already a milestone artist, acclaimed as a fresh new force in both music and popular culture. Born in Morocco but raised in Manitoba, Canada, the trilingual 19-year-old singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist began playing piano at the age of six, soon adding guitar and violin to her growing skill set. Working from a stunning range of influences – spanning Chopin to Beyoncé to legendary Egyptian singer Umm Kulthum – Faouzia began singing songs of her own, immediately earning millions of streams and major radio play with her first independent single. After winning several local and national competitions, she went on to win top prize honors from both the Nashville-based Unsigned Only and International Songwriting Competition.
