Be Steadwell is a singer-songwriter from Washington, D.C. With roots in jazz, a capella and folk, Be composes a soulful blend of genres into what she calls queer pop. In her live performances, she utilizes loop pedal vocal layering and beat boxing to compose her
songs on stage. Be's self-produced albums feature her earnest lyricism, proud LGBTQ content, unapologetic silliness, and the art of the simple love song.
As she pursued her career in music, she began a career in film. Shooting and editing her own music videos, Be combined her love of music with narrative film. In 2014, Be completed an MFA in film from Howard University. This year, Be was selected to be a 2016 Strathmore Artist in Residence. The D.C. commission on the arts awarded Be the artist fellowship for 2016. Be is currently touring her music and screening her film Vow of Silence (2014)
