Last year, women made up 23% of the Mamby on the Beach lineup. This year, Mamby has stepped it up to 32%, pushing leading ladies such as Santigold and breakout act Summer Walker to the forefront of the lineup. But, they aren’t the only ones that we’re stoked to see bring some heat to Montrose beach this summer.
Down to earth, honest, and a true Chicagoan at heart is what comes to mind when we think of Noname. With an infectious flow, candor and vivid coming of age stories embedded in her music, Mamby is proud to host the poetic stylings of Fatima Warner once again.
American and Honduran, singer-songwriter Empress Of realized music as a path for herself with a little obsession and a lot of inspiration from Icelandic artist Björk. Much to the likes of Björk, Lorely Rodriguez hasn’t let the construct of gender identity box her in. Her feminist anthem, “Woman is a Word” expresses her “feeling like the word ‘woman’ put me in a box of things I was capable to do,” a relatable situation for many women and non gender identifying people.
The Aces, a four piece pop-rock group picked up by Red Bull Records last year, are also here to say that “girl bands aren’t a genre of music.” The Utah natives who have turned from schoolmates to bandmates have battled industry misconceptions and backhanded compliments with their honest writing, cheeky creative directing, and deep connection with their fans from all over.
Nao’s music radiates healing, pride, and atmospheric beats. Her dynamic vocals and alternative R&B moves have not only earned her spots with NPR’s Tiny Desk sessions, but a spot on the Top 20 charts as well as a Best Female Artist nomination at The Brit Awards.
This is only a fraction of the amazing female artists headed to Chicago August 23 + 24. Get linked to the rest of the lineup here and dive into all the female acts playing Mamby in 2019.
