Folk Indie Jazz Pop


Violet Vopni
MB Canada


Nineteen is an acoustic duo from Winnipeg, Manitoba playing original indie folk, pop and jazz music. We decided to call our duo Nineteen because that was a time in both of our lives when we faced these huge forks in the road, these dark night of soul moments. It was the decision to allow things to stay the same, to succumb to darkness or to take a leap of faith ... for me I could have died by suicide ... for Clinton he could have allowed fear to shut down his dreams. We were being called to adventure, called to start our heroic journeys. We both chose to leap into the unknown. Nineteen to us means having that ability to be at rock bottom and still have the courage to follow your heart to where you're meant to be.

Violet began her musical journey at a young age, singing Janet Jackson for neighbors, and participating in church choir. She wrote her first song in 1995 when she was 11yrs old. In high school she sang in choir, chamber choir and vocal jazz. At 19, she put her musical journey on hiatus in order to obtain two PhDs, in Metaphysical Science and Parapsychology and to start her career as a psychic therapist. In 2016, she returned to her love of music, took classes at Manitoba Conservatory, and sang a lot of karaoke.

Clinton has always had a fascination with guitar, piano, and loves the technical side of composing and arranging. He took private lessons all throughout his life, but most notably he studied jazz guitar for four years. He’s participated in many church musicals, competitions, and had the chance to live and study in Norway when he was 19. When he's not playing guitar, he's writing people's names wrong as a barista at Starbucks.

Nineteen was established in November of 2019, and it’s been a wild ride, finishing songs from Violet's vault, some of which were written as early as 1998.
