Step into my Sparkle Tornado
Moments where music and meditation collide, one disco clap at a time.
VQnC is a singer, songwriter, photographer and vintage clothing curator. She was nominated for the 2018 Boston Music Awards’ R&B Artist of the Year, was featured in Marie Claire Magazine, and released her debut album in April 2019.
Her love of performance took shape in the southern clime of Charleston, South Carolina, where she grew up in a musical family with strong Celtic roots. After moving to Boston in 2013, she discovered a rich musical scene where she could explore new musical genres and grow as an artist. Before long, she was turning her poetry into songs.
Using music to process her own experiences, VQnC gives emotions new life, and creates a space for listeners find their own meaning. Her signature bass lines, catchy melodies, and meditative repetitions embrace imperfection while celebrating self-care and self-love.
With a bright, colorful aesthetic and an ever-growing sequin collection, she channels the queenliness of disco and the soulful flair of female singers like Erykah Badu and Stevie Nicks. VQnC fronted Boston’s funk-rock band, Dr. Fidelity and toured with the improvisational electronic collective, GoldBloc. She has performed at the House Of Blues, Brighton Music Hall, The Institute of Contemporary Art, The Box, and the Knitting Factory. VQnC has also shared the stage with other artists such as Busty and the Bass, Robert DeLong, WET, ExMag, Congo Sanchez, Snoh Allegra, and Quantic.
“I want my disco music to make people dance, to be happy, lose yourself in a way,” she added. “But I also want to draw in some subject matter that is really important to me: valuing yourself, taking care of yourself in whatever way you are capable of, finding pride in who you are, even when it’s hard.”
