Based in NYC and originally hailing from Columbia, Maryland, MILITIA VOX is a multi-hypenate artist that has recorded, toured and shared the stage with some of the best in the business, including: Cyndi Lauper, Twisted Sister, Living Colour, Taylor Dayne, Nancy Sinatra, Sandra Bernhard, The Paul Schaffer Band and many more.
Well known as the electrifying frontwoman for Judas Priestess and Swear On Your Life, as well as former Host/VJ from MTV2, VH1 and Fuse, and a key influencer of the Afropunk movement, MILITIA VOX officially stepped forward as a solo recording artist in 2013. Her mesmerizing presence, raw power and 4 octave range have captured the hearts of icons such as Dee Snider, Sid Bernstein and Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill.)
Militia calls her music "Femme Metale" - in praise of wicked women. Her albums "BAIT" and "ISOSCELES" were self funded and independently released to international critical acclaim. Her music has been featured in commercials and anime films, and she directs and creates all of her own video art to support her musical vision. MILITIA VOX is currently touring with her band and mixing her next album "THE VILLAINESS."
Militia's mantra is "Disgrace Your Stereotype"* and she lives her life by this adage, encouraging people to be true to themselves and rise above labels. She is a magnetic public speaker at colleges (including Berklee College of Music) and conferences (such as SXSW), as well as being featured in several books, tv shows and films. She hosts many festivals and events, stars in musicals and cabarets and also produces her own one-woman shows. M is also a member of the Black Rock Coalition and a voting member of The Recording Academy (NARAS).
In sum, this ain't your average frontwoman... MILITIA VOX is an unrepentant badass.
