Description

Queer Arts Festival 2019

Electronic music. Performances by emerging artists from QAF's Technical Knockouts music lab, mentored by Kinnie Starr, DJ O Show and Tiffany Moses. .


About the artists:

Kinnie Starr is a genre-defying artist blazing her own influential trail. Entirely self-trained, Starr
moves from hip hop to art-pop, folk to spoken word to EDM with eclectic grace. Kinnie’s career
as singer-songwriter, spoken-word poet, Juno-Award-winning producer has taken her around
the world, but she is first and foremost an artist and activist. Her activism began before her
career in music as a visual artist, and her current visual work continues to touch on her areas of
interest: race, home, family and humanity.

Orene Askew aka DJ O’Show is a musician, DJ, MC, public speaker as well as instructor at the
School of Remix teaching students with an inspired approach to pursue their dream of
becoming DJs. She is Afro-Canadian and First Nations and proud to be a member of the
Squamish Nation; growing up on the Squamish reserve her whole life.

Tiffany Moses is a vocalist and audio engineer currently living in Vancouver, BC. Inspired by a
love of music she has been singing since she was a young girl following her grandfather into the
bush. Musical influences include jazz singers such as Billie Holiday and Nina Simone as well as
classical composers such as Vivaldi and later trip-hop bands Portishead and Massive Attack.
