ABOUT

Hi! My name's Mint.
I believe in challenging the normate, the normal, the socially unacceptable.
I believe in defiance.
I believe in flaunting things publically that we are normally shamed for publicly: (sexual promiscuity, sexual identity, our bodies, etc...).
I believe in changing the definitions of masculine and feminine.
I believe in creating a safe space where people can freely be who they really are free from worry or fear of repercussions.
I believe in inviting an audience "onto the stage WITH me" in the sense that they are a part of the musical/performance experience. {I understand that having large #s of people onstage invites safety issues. Therefore I might also say...}
I believe in extending the "stage" to include the dancefloor/audience space.

If you believe in these things too, contact me via social media. You can find me on Instant Gram ;) and Reverb Nation.

CAUTION!
Halloween is when we dress up as someone/thing WE ARE NOT. I want to create a safe space to dress up as who we really are BUT ARE AFRAID TO BE due to social pressure. That is the critical difference between Halloween and a Masquerade.

#1 goal: have fun; have SUBVERSIVE EXPRESSIVE ARTISTIC fun!!

Instruments:
TWO FEMALE keys. I envision portraying lipstick lesbian (or trans-lesbian) identities similar to Jill Jones and Lisa Coleman in Prince's "1999" music video (see pics for example & the y-o-u-toob video "1999".). Also, I WILL in fact need 4 hands as I layer multiple synth sounds. Or Two delicious men.

ONE bass with multiple effects for creating electronic sounds (see my Reverb-Nation website and listen to songs posted here).

One drummer OR dj (maybe both?) with a predilection for hip hop and funk rhythms.
