Nerdkween




The project is called nerdkween which is a vehicle to create post modern pop tunes. They may sound sweet and innocent but they may not always be. The theory behind the music is one of free experimentation. nerdkween blends styles and explores the depths of the mind, heart, and soul. This is where dreamy and raw pop combine; layered with jazzy phrasing, country twangs, and simplistic yet eerie power in a low fidelity format.

Her style has been influenced by artists such as PJ Harvey, Sonic Youth, Lisa Germano, The Sundays, Mazzy Star, Low, Cranes, and early Liz Phair. And with five years of classical voice, nerdkween emotes the message of each of the songs. Her tools are keyboards, guitar, radios, tape noise and drum machine along with recording tricks from a four-track recorder.

The first EP called 'i see things differently now' was released in 2000. This led to radio play on Atlanta's Album 88, the largest college radio station in the country. With the release of the second recording entitled "the dark horse" came press from Creative Loafing and The Southeast Performer.

The exposure allowed nerdkween to perform on the Atlanta music scene in clubs like The Red Light Cafe , The Echo Lounge, The Village, I.A.G., MJQ, The Earl and Compares in Athens, Ga.

She has opened for The Quails, Hella, The Aisler Set, and Mark Gardener from the infamous British band, Ride. nerdkweens talent opened up doors and invitations to local festivals Corndogorama, and the Independent Georgia Festival.

2008 saw the release of her first proper full length entitled "Synergy".
