Lady Fingaz BIO
"As the child of a musician some of Lady Fingaz earliest memories revolve around the stage, taking in her father's gigs, and often sitting in to sing with the band. From this musical beginning she began studying piano and voice. In her teenage years Lady Fingaz would discover and enthrall herself in the art of turntablism. Soon this Austin, Texas native found her element better known as dj/turntablist, producer and vocalist Lady Fingaz. Moving to New Orleans in 2001 she kept perfecting her mixes and cuts, the basics of turntablism, all while earning two business degrees at UNO. It was in New Orleans where she would quickly make a name for herself as a rising hip-hop talent in an all too often male dominated genre. In 2005 she was honored with Best Emerging Hip-Hop Artist by Offbeats Best of the Beat Awards for her accomplishments throughout New Orleans. In 2006 Lady Fingaz joined the collective Females Wit Funk which features the top female turntablists from around the world. In May of 2010 her crew La Femme Deadly Venoms placed 2nd in the U.S. Team DMC competition. Lady Fingaz has played alongside such artists as Floetry, Galactic, Murs, Killah Priest, Saul Williams, Faust and Shortee, Buck 65, Live Human, and MC Chris just to name a few. Following the destruction of Hurricane Katrina, Lady Fingaz relocated to San Francisco, CA where she now resides furthering her musical pursuit. Mixing a variety of genres accompanied by an array of show stopping turntablism and live production this southern belle knows how to rock a party!"
