Ember Swift

Swift, Ember

Ember Swift is a Canadian musician who originally came to Beijing in 2007 as a break from her busy music career. Then, she fell in love — first with the country, and then with a person in the country. Now living in Chaoyang District, she splits her time between motherhood, music, writing, voice-over work, and teaching. As an out queer artist, her romantic partnership sparked the successful and award-winning blog: Queer Girl Gets Married (Lotus Love Blog Award, 2014). Swift is also a columnist for Beijing Kids MagazineChina.orgMami Magazine, and Canada’s feminist quarterly, Herizons. She is working on a longer memoir project.
