Miss Eaves is the feminist sound storm of Brooklyn based multimedia artist Shanthony Exum. Her fierce femcee electro-pop-rap-dance-explosions were born as a phoenix arisen from the hot fire of both a band and a break-up, and she has since spread her wings and plays music around the world. Her brazen, patriarchy push-back, it’s my body, take-no-sh*t lyrics are rabid animals of honesty.
Not only a beat slayer, Miss Eaves is a paper mache addict and a bad-ass with a glue gun. She directs and art directs her videos and designs her own merchandise. Drawing inspiration from Frida Khalo, Michel Gondry, MIA, Santigold and Sia, she is determined to show the world she is about that DIY life. And trust, she will take you on a rollercoaster through her imagination.
Miss Eaves’ latest, Feminasty was a year-long labour of love produced by longtime collaborator KEISHH and recorded during a winter in Montreal, Canada, which is nasty cold. Feminasty plays on term Femi-Nazi and Janet Jackson’s line. Come and see how Miss Eaves rolls.
