“B.Steady explores the art of making fun pop music and films for queer people of color and other folks with silenced struggles. Located somewhere within the traditions of Sweet Honey in the Rock, julie dash, The Clovers, Issa Rae, Bobby McFerrin, Audre Lorde and BonIver.
She released her first self-produced album on Itunes in January 2011, and posts an original live song weekly on her queerBgirl youtube video blog. Her music is simple yet infectious, and always sincere. In her own words, “Some days I want to write sappy love songs for my girlfriend. Some days I want to write about a season. Some days I want to write about racism. But mostly, I want to write fun music for people like me.”
B is a singer/MC in the queer pop group The Lost Bois, and is currently attending Howard University in pursuit of her M.F.A. in film.”
“Pop thunder vocals, electric nights, psuedo-synth, an ear for integration, and a thirst for the blues…so was born China Fox. With no certain origin, China Fox makes a home anywhere it finds itself.In the basements of small houses, in the woods, around bon fires, drum circles, late night sessions, on makeshift dance floors, third world avenues, on rooftops, on hardwood floors, boats, cars, trains, vans, park squares.
It constantly reinvents itself by collecting bits and pieces from the sounds it’s drawn to…If you find yourself drawn too, come find your fox.”
Pamela Means “one of the fiercest guitar players and politically-rooted songwriters in the music industry today,” (Curve Magazine) is an internationally-touring singer-songwriter and jazz musician.
