Up and coming performing artist and songwriter, Poeina Suddarth, is relentless in her pursuit of bringing her music to her nationwide fanbase. Although her van broke down almost a year ago she has been hitch hiking, ridesharing, and using fan funding to tour on foot while toting her guitar and suitcase of handmade merchandise behind her.
Poeina lived for 8 years out of a van with her lover and dog, and roamed the country collaborating, and crafting her songwriting skills. During a tour where she was a vocalist and hype girl for Northwestern hip hop group Dark Time Sunshine, rapper Onry Ozzborn said, â€œIâ€™m only going to say this one time, now is the time. You are a star girl. You need to get yourself your own stageâ€.
Poeinaâ€™s solo music first hit the stage during her original musical production, â€œThe Bedroom Showâ€ in May of 2011. The show was based on the theme from her song "White Mountain Beauty" that says, â€œwith the thunder brings the rain in the canyons echoing like the time I lost my faith and still survivedâ€. The bedroom show was written, produced and performed by Poeina Suddarth with the support from the Northwestern community, and 30+ cast and crew members.
Poeina EP was released on iTunes through Longbridge Entertainment on February 18th, 2013
