****************************************************
Known for intense vocal prowess and stunning stage presence, MILITIA VOX is a powerhouse with a 4 octave range that must be witnessed to be believed. 

Also known as MilitiA., MILITIA VOX is a solo artist and songwriter, frontwoman of JUDAS PRIESTESS- The World's Only all girl tribute to the metal gods Judas Priest, lead singer/songwriter of progressive hard rock band SWEAR ON YOUR LIFE, leading lady of DEE SNIDER's heavy metal horror orchestra "VAN HELSING'S CURSE" and known as the "Rock Goddess" of the Brooklyn based AFROPUNK movement.
MilitiA. is often applauded for coining the phrase "DISGRACE YOUR STEREOTYPE"* and she lives her life by this adage. She is featured in Black Rock Vol. 1 by Earl Douglas Jr., "What Are You Doing Here? Black Women in Metal, Hardcore and Punk" by Laina Dawes (recently featured on NPR) and also in the upcoming book "Not Bad For For A Girl" by Dr. Lisa. Her songs have been featured on several of the BLACK ROCK COALITION's digital compilations and received placements on mystery and horror book promotional commercials. MilitiA. performed the song live at the 7th Annual OUTMUSIC Awards in honor of MELISSA ETHERIDGE's Lifetime Achievement Award. 
In sum, this ain't your average frontwoman... MilitiA. is an unrepentant badass.

Saraswathi Jones is a singer/songwriter based in Beverly, MA and a purveyor of "postcolonial pop rock." Raised in Michigan with roots in India, she draws from the well of South Asian history, culture and aesthetics for her own music and performance. Jones released her first solo EP Lingua Franca in 2013, and performs also with her band Awaaz Do, which re-imagines classic Bollywood songs as rock and roll anthems. Saraswathi Jones and Awaaz Do hosted and co-produced Hindie Rock Fest -- an annual music festival in Cambridge, MA featuring South Asian American artists from a broad array of genres.
