Be Steadwell is a singer-songwriter from Washington DC. With roots in jazz, a cappella, and folk, Be composes a soulful blend of genres into what she calls queer pop. Be’s work has caught the attention of many throughout the East Coast and the DMW where she has been awarded an Artist fellowship from DC commission in the Arts and has been an artist in residence at The Strathmore Performing Arts Center. In her live performances, she utilizes loop pedal vocal layering and beat boxing to compose her songs on stage. Be’s self-produced albums feature her earnest lyricism, proud LGBTQ content, unapologetic silliness, and the art of the simple love song.
