LEXI MARIE is a prolific poet and vocalist currently based out of Lillooet BC, who combines the essence of soul and folk with an R&B kiss. Influenced by strong female artists like Mavis Staples, and Lauryn Hill, Lexi draws from her struggles and vulnerabilities, making a point of delivering bold, and honest messages of strength and resilience to defeat. When she sings it’s like a sunrise, something to look forward to, bringing light to even the darkest of days.

USCHI TALA
A self taught multi instrumentalist and poet, Uschi Tala draws inspiration from the Earth its creatures, and the light found within the darkness. Using a looping pedal and various instruments including beats produced by mouth or machine she creates ambient soundscapes each layer telling its own tale, her lyrics embody an ocean of healing and encourage others to sea the radiance in themselves as well as the bigger picture.

MUTYA MACATUMPAG
(moo-cha maca-toom-pag) experiments with a mini keyboard, looping, audio sampling and guitalele creating a collage of sound landscapes. A vibrato compared to that of Tracy Chapman, Mutya’s voice evokes an ancient remembering, an ancestral stir of emotion that trancends time and grace.
Stay tuned for Mutya’s website and EP drop, scheduled to be unleashed June 2016…

aly & josh

aly & josh are two tenderqueer filipemos whose collective art practice is based upon friendship and trusting their impulses. together they create visceral multi-media pieces that incorporate movement, film, sounds. their process consists of lots of experimentation, spontaneous low-key adventures, and snacks.

PURPLE HEARTS SOCIAL CLUB
Purple Hearts Social Club came together from the Team Danger family and are inspired by a very special little girl; Phoenix Ryland Del Rosario or as some know her, Baby Danger. This little girl fought with bravery and courage against leukemia for almost 2 years. Tragically, she ascended to her true form just 2 months shy of her 5th birthday on October 12, 2012.
Mimi Danger is her mom (or “mimi” as she would call her) and Jillthy, NikiNice and Yex Lee her ninangs (or god-mothers in english). Phoenix loved to dance and have fun and it is through their music that they spread her message of strength, bravery and love.
