- Mariee Sioux was raised in Northern California and is of Indigenous and Polish Hungarian ancestry. She prefers to be known as an abstract storyteller and a voice for the natural world and trials of humanity through song. She’s been given gifts of songs for over 10 years. Her songs
have been described as medicinal, hallucinatory, and haunting, with a trance like performance.
Mariee Sioux’s most recently recorded song Black Snakes, inspired by the Standing Rock /Water Protectors movement, was recently played over some of the heaviest footage of the Standing Rock evictions and faces of brave water protectors on Democracy Now.Emily Ritz left her home in upstate New York for Nothern California after high school to study painting and film making at California College of the Arts. Embraced by San Francisco’s vibrant music community in the early 2000’s, Emily found her place there as a performer. She continued to tour and put out albums with the Bay as her home-base long after graduating from college. Her previous projects include Honeycomb, DRMS, and her more recent collaboration with Kacey Johansing, Yesway. Since her move back East to Hudson NY last year, Emily has been performing under her own name for the first time. With a heavy delay on her electric guitar, odd time signatures and intricate guitar picking underneath powerful, soulful vocals, you can expect a compelling live performance. Emily will releasing her first solo record in 2017.
