Overview The Songster Series - QueenEarth

Creative Alliance presents a series of free public performances, The Songster Series, designed to reveal the hidden influences that have impacted celebrated regional musicians. This series gets to the heart of who these musicians are, their musical influences, and how their sound evolved. These intimate, salon style performances take place in the Creative Alliance’s Marquee Lounge. Listen to the previous Songster Series Event with Warner Williams and Jay Summerour here: http://bit.ly/2uiJlM1

Fresh from the Cowboy Arms Hotel And Recording Spa in Nashville, QueenEarth and her band TQB are set to release the EP Universe in the fall of this year. The studio fits her artistic vibe; in a relaxed environment, anything can happen. Join host Brooks Long tonight for a laidback conversation with QueenEarth featuring music performances that illustrate how her love of R&B, Hip-Hop, Country and Pure Pop help spread her message of empowerment for women of color, LGBT pride, social justice and spiritual uplift for all.

Growing up around her mother, a vocalist whose Aretha Franklin renditions could tear the house down, QueenEarth was attracted to music from the beginning. However she found her musical path after discovering India Arie and digging into Lauryn Hill's MTV Unplugged album, inspired by hearing women of color deftly weave many genres into their own vision, united by the strum of their acoustic guitars.

Since then, she has become a staple in the Baltimore music scene, playing shows, hosting and curating events, developing creativity training curiculum and using her music as a teaching artist in workshops to shape discussions of diversity and inclusion for queer artists and women of color. Her song "Stargazer" ( which you can find here:) was used in the webseries "Dyke Central" and she is currently developing a new song for "Collared", an upcoming podcast series about spiritual leaders who are women of color.
