Juliana Parker combines the sounds of musical theater and rock on piano, reminiscent of Sara Bareilles and Queen. When she takes the stage, Juliana has an electric way of making an audience feel right at home, always smiling and providing opportunities to laugh. Her most recent release, “Michael,” tackles the frustrations of workplace sexism in a wacky, larger-than-life track you’ll be humming all week. A recent graduate from Berklee College of Music and a current member of the BMI Lehman-Engel Musical Theater Workshop, she is running in all keys blazing.
Imported from South Carolina’s Lowcountry and The ATL respectively, vocalist, songwriter, musician, and solo performer Queen Esther lives in Harlem and continues to perform internationally with her mentor, harmelodic guitar icon James “Blood” Ulmer, in various projects — including a recent European tour with his iconic free jazz group Odyssey — as she forges her own sonic path.
Known for her solo performance projects The Moxie Showand Queen Esther: Unemployed Superstar, Queen Esther received an AUDELCO award nomination (2002) for her star turn in George C. Wolfe’s Harlem Song and returned to The Apollo Theater with a performance residency for her jazz musical The Billie Holiday Project. A special Drama Desk Award (2001) was given to Tribeca Playhouse for their production of Queen Esther’s Stagedoor Canteen, a weekly hour-long USO-style variety show that welcomed performers to entertain Ground Zero relief workers for free.

Stella’s music has been highly acclaimed in reviews by BuzzMusic and A+R Factory. “The maturity in Stella Prince’s talent transcends her age; probably by a fair few decades…Stella Prince’s vocals don’t just offer an extraordinary range and the ability to hit celestially high notes. There’s a true sense of authenticity and soul which is infused into her acoustic country folk-pop which will make sure that the New York-based artist doesn’t stay up and coming for all too long.” A + R Factory Blog, October 2019
