Quanah Style is Canada’s most infamous 2-spirit trans recording artist and house music diva. From coast to coast, there are few dance floors who haven’t felt her presence. After a brilliant run of singles on Wet Trax, Quanah became a festival fixture, performing her anthemic hits with vogue dance crew House of La Douche. Music videos for songs such as her debut single ‘Beat of My Heart’ and the Storyhive award-recipient ‘Give Me Life’ showcased Quanah’s undeniable star-quality. Her incredible stage presence, signature vocals, and inspirational story led her to become the subject of several documentaries produced by CBC Arts, World of Wonder Productions, APTN and Vice Magazine. She has also opened for Peaches, Bif Naked, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Snotty nose Rez kids and more
