Meet Delilah Bon: The guitarist empowering women and non-binary people in rock through nu-metal tones and girl-gang vocals

Who is Delilah Bon and why did you feel the urge to bring her to life?. “Delilah was created last year completely by accident. I was touring with my band [Hands Off Gretel] when I spoke out about women’s safety at shows. I wrote about my own experiences online, how I was having to deal with men trying to kiss and touch me off stage, only to be met with resistance from people saying I was asking for it because of how I chose to dress. I was riddled with anxiety then, playing shows.”

Periphery Guitarist Jake Bowen Unveils “The Daily Sun” Solo Track

Periphery guitarist Jake Bowen’s first solo album, Isometric, which came out back in 2015, was fantastic, a maelstrom of chilled out electronic vibes ala Tycho or Massive Attack. Even more fantastic: seeing him perform the songs live in a well-filled but not packed Saint Vitus Bar one steamy summer night a couple of years later (opening for Infinity Shred). Isometric is available on Spotify if you’re so inclined (I recommend it).

Melanie Lenau: Singer/Songwriter, Violinist & Guitarist

Melanie Lenau is a singer-songwriter, violinist, guitarist and performer from the Great Lakes State of Michigan whose musical beginnings were informed by a split between the sacred and the secular; yet, her lifetime of experiences and interests have propelled her through a kaleidoscope of diverse sonic influences: gospel, pop-rock, blues, jazz, opera, folk, country and bluegrass, and she blends them all into her own indelible style that is genuine, calming, playful, intimate, profound, cryptic and accessible. Like her heroes Dolly Parton, Joni Mitchell, Toni Morrison, and Sia, Melanie connects with her audiences through the honest power of passionate and inspirational storytelling, and she sings with a subtle authority that is buoyed by both the earnestness of her lyrics and her understated and sly phrasing.
