THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — It was by happenstance I clicked on someone’s social media link to a music video. I’d never heard the artist’s name before and I’m always on the lookout for great music for my side gig programming music.
Right after the music started up, I was thinking, wow, this is pretty good, so I scrolled down to find out more about her — and as it turns out, she’s a trans musician! Namoli Brennet has been making music and touring for over a decade. She was among the Trans 100, and according friends, put on a pretty impressive performance there as well.
Knowing a thing or two about the indie music business, I know it’s really tough to make a go of it — competition is intense and buyers few. Keeping it up for over a decade, especially touring, deserves a tip of the hat by itself. Most importantly, her music is great, too.
While I’m not sure I’ll be able to program anything, she does belongs on everyone’s list of great transgender artists. And a great role model, too. Nice discovery I’d say.
