Holly Near is a unique combination of entertainer, teacher, and activist. An immense vocal talent, Near’s career as a singer has been defined by an unwillingness to separate her passion for music from her passion for human dignity. She is a skilled performer and an outspoken ambassador for peace who brings to the stage an integration of world consciousness, spiritual discovery, and theatricality.
Be Steadwell is a singer songwriter from Washington DC. With roots in jazz, acapella and folk-Be transforms a soulful blend of genres into what she calls queer pop. In her live performances, she utilizes loop pedal vocal layering and beat boxing to compose her songs on stage. Be's self-produced albums feature her earnest lyricism, proud LGBTQ content, unapologetic silliness, and the art of the simple love song.
Heather Mae was once just a folk songwriter with a ukulele but after recovering from vocal nodules – which left her unable to sing for two years – she is stretching the limits of her music and her voice. Her newest EP, titled “I AM ENOUGH”, is a collection of five anthemic songs that encourage the listener to search for the best version of themselves while also shaking their hips to a new wave of pop – think Tegan & Sara, meets Sara Bareilles, with the vocal tenacity of Etta James.
A professed Southern Gothic songster based in Johnson City, TN, Amythyst Kiah’s commanding stage presence is only matched by her raw and powerful vocals—a deeply moving, hypnotic sound that stirs echoes of a distant and restless past. A graduate of East Tennessee State University, she studied old time music and music performance, and it proved to be a pivotal moment in her life as she transformed from a long-time closet musician into a well-rounded, captivating performer.
Pandora Scooter is a powerful spoken word dynamite dyke artist whose performances draw audiences in and leave them feeling great. She's performed across the nation at Pride Centers and Festivals and Universities. She's shared the stage with the incomparable Lily Tomlin, Melissa Ferrick, Alix Olson, Bitch, Crys Matthews, Antara, Sonia and Disappear Fear along with many others. She is thrilled to be back at SisterSpace!
Tiik with G.U.T.S.
Tiik.Angela.Ebony are G.U.T.S. (Give Us The Strength), a passionate, Washington DC based, power-risk, post-punk trio. They have one album out and one on the way. GUTS music builds on their years of varied experiences and ultimately grows out of that mystical place between classic rock/punk and new rock. G.U.T.S. has played venues from Virginia to Connecticut in clubs, festivals & backyard BBQ's.
FIERCE is a five piece, all-girl band based out of Lancaster, PA. Their music consists of classic rock and blues to modern rock, pop and dance hits with some originals thrown in to showcase their writing talent. The group has been in existence since November 2011. While some of the members have changed over the years, the group’s intensity remains strong. The current line-up features former members of the bands Dirty Girls, Sisterbeat and Deja Vudoo.
