In the quarantined summer of 2020, 95 Bulls was formed by five friends from different bands (Ashjesus, The Mystery Lights, Smock, Bipolar, and Jelly Kelly) pretty much by accident. They all wanted to make music for fun while their bandmates were scattered but with two pennies to their name, they fell in love, and decided it was best to write a record and get married. The accidental turned purposeful rock and roll band has shared bills with Wavves, Sheer Mag, Dirty Fences, and Sunflower Bean to name a few and look forward to their debut record release in June 2022.

19-year-old Tayahna Walcott (Talia Goddess) is a multi-hyphenate artist and creator from Brooklyn, New York with Guyanese and British roots. She merges her many talents as a self-taught singer-songwriter, rapper, music, producer, DJ, model, multi-instrumentalist, creative entrepreneur, and community leader to galvanize the next generation of creatives and push culture forward. Since the early age of six, she has been engaged in the arts, using her talents to express herself and bring people of all walks of life together. Recently, Talia graduated Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School, started her record label and creative agency TRANCE, and collaborated with several world-renown publications and brands such as Vogue, Wonderland, Refinery29, Nike, Dazed, Tommy Hilfiger, MCM, i-D, Converse, AWAKE NY, and MCM.

Reyna Tropical are composed of Mexican expats Fabiola Reyna and Sumohair. The duo met as part of Red Bull Music Academy’s Bass Camp at Bonnaroo Music Festival in 2017, chosen as two of 20 up-and-coming producers and musicians from around the country. It was there that they bonded over their love for the tropical diaspora and began experimenting with their unique writing process: a process inclusive of pure improvisation consisting of a four-hour session per song aimed at capturing the moment and the environment. Today, Reyna Tropical merges their passion for social justice and community organizing with the space and opportunities that they can create through their music. As the bands tagline, “Queer Love & Afro-Mexico” is dedicated to raising awareness and funds to issues connected to the environment, inclusive of Indigenous rights, Afro-Mexican rights, missing and murdered indigenous women, and the many injustices that live in and in between the spectrum of Queer Love & Afro-Mexico. With the continued support of artists such as Bomba Estéreo, Lido Pimienta, Portugal The Man, and Y La Bamba, Reyna Tropical has also been recognized by Remezcla (Reyna Tropical: A Queer Love Revolution), Grimy Goods (Reyna Tropical Pay Tribute To The World’s Bodies Of Water And Life On Sublime New Ep Sol Y Lluvia), and NPR’s 2022 artists to watch.
