DAUNTLESS QUEENS SPEAKERS
DJ Natasha Diggs has established herself as one of the most versatile and well-respected DJs in the world making her career our of sharing her deep knowledge of music and skills as a mixologist across the globe.
From her teenage days of amassing a huge record collection to being coined "The 45 Queen" known for rocking crowds with her signature all 7 inch vinyl sets at downtown NYC parties including Mobile Mondays and Soul in the Horn.
Natasha has shared the stage with Grammy Award-winning artist Lauryn Hill, Q-Tip, Erykah Badu, Nai Palm, Santigold, Hiatus Kaiyote, Rakim, Anderson. Paak and many others.
Aria Jay is an Alternative R&B Singer/Songwriter who currently creates and produces her music in Brooklyn, NY.
This past year, she wrote and recorded her debut EP “Growth," which was released in the spring of 2017, along with her debut music video for the single "He Said." In early 2017, Aria was chosen to be artist in residence at a production studio in Brooklyn. During her one month residency, she created a visual album for "Growth".
Growth ((the visual album)) takes you through a room of growing pains. Curated to go through each track of her debut EP "Growth" in order, it was filmed exactly that way- in one studio, using each area of the space to present a different emotion and part of the story.
Produced and directed by Janet S. Kim. Cinematography by Che Broadnax.
Artist advocate, internet geek, Pittsburgh, PA native & Dauntless Media founder Rachael Hardway fills creative spaces with questions, ideas, and strategies.
Prone to jumping down intellectual rabbit holes, hotly contesting point of origin assumptions, and obsessing until the problem is solved. It takes less than a minute of talking to see that her true passion and inspiration lies in music and creative direction, so aside from marketing unbridled awesomeness and telling bad jokes, she assist artists and brands in all things music marketing, brand development, or at the very least, much cooler playlists for myself and others.
Rachael & Justin Ferrato co-direct the Dauntless Queens Docuseries.
Music is her sanctuary.
