Join us for the third installment of All Access Fridays x The Story featuring Guayaba & doNormaal who will discuss their own personal stories in how they navigate the music industry, their creative process, and more. Those that identify as femme, non-binary, trans, and/or queer/LGB+ are highly encouraged to attend. Please spread the word to young people that you may think could benefit from this workshop.
"Every person contains multitudes, but few embrace them as much as Northwest rapper and vocalist Guayaba. As an artist, she’s fronted metal acts, made experimental pop ballads, raps, etc. But this idea extends beyond how she executes her vision. Digging through her lyrics in her latest album, Black Trash/White House, she embraces her race, gender, sexuality, and every facet of herself that makes her who she is with an unshakable, bilingual flow." (Local Artist Spotlight, Dusty Henry, KEXP Blog, 24 April 2017)
"Seattle emcee DoNormaal offers surprise after lyrical surprise in the tightly packed, staccato rhymes brimming on her latest LP, Third Daughter. The rapper, who burst on the Emerald City scene in November 2015 with the release of her beloved first full-length Jump Or Die has maintained status as one of Seattle’s most sought-after spitters." (KEXP Exclusive Interview: doNormaal, Jake Uitti, KEXP Blog, 19 Sept 2017)
