Elisapie Isaac is a Canadian pop singer, broadcaster, documentary filmmaker and activist. Born in Salluit, Quebec to an Inuk mother and a father from Newfoundland, she performed at age twelve with the Salluit band Sugluk. Isaac collaborated with instrumentalist Alain Auger in the musical project Taima in the early 2000s. The band's sole album, Taima, won the Juno Award for Aboriginal Recording of the Year in 2005.
In 2010, Isaac's first solo album, There Will Be Stars, was released by Pheromone Recordings. Her second solo album, Travelling Love, was released in October 2012. In the fall of 2012, she released the pop album Travelling Love, recorded simply as Elisapie. The Juno Awards mistakenly nominated her for its breakthrough artist of the year, before realizing that she had been a Juno winner in 2005, and rescinded the nomination. She garnered a Canadian Screen Award nomination for Best Original Song at the 2nd Canadian Screen Awards for her song "Far Away", which appeared in the film The Legend of Sarila. She was nominated for the Juno Award for Indigenous Music Album of the Year at the Juno Awards of 2019, for The Ballad of the Runaway Girl.
