FΣMMΞ░daddy

                                                                                                                                                  
Like the phoenix rising from the ashes, when the apocalypse started FΣMMΞ░daddy emerged in their full glory and formed this duo to embody the voices of wild waters, shallow city nights, the passion of wandering ghosts, and the way love burns.
FΣMMΞ░daddy is Edamwen who is mysterious and plays the handpan, guitar and sings and Daniela Sea who plays the 7 string guitar and sings.



‘FΣMMΞ░daddy
 plugs it in‘
   


Reimagining your imagination.
Rain, ghosts, love and dolphins.
Further coopting the queer agenda with trans_itional music crafted for crossing the apocalypse.




How does your community influence your creative process?



“My community forced me into art because everyone around me was an artist and I did not have a choice. You can call it inspiration or you can call it peer pressure.”
Edamwen

“I make art inside of community and in this queer way I resist the singular artist genius trope that is both destructive and a lie.”
Daniela


A juicy slice of advice?



                                                    Play music. Value integrity. If you must choose, prioritize being at peace with yourself over                                                       being at peace with others.   
 

I recommend…
