“VQnC knows that true “freedom” lies at the very core of controlling whatever tune is spinning in your soul. The Somerville artist evokes a club-thumping funk with her track “Heart”... between production creds for Cliff Notez and HAMSTANK, Oompa’s bars, and of course, VQnC’s idea, “Heart” beats with Boston’s sound in every line.”

About

VQnC is a singer, songwriter, photographer and vintage clothing curator. She was nominated for the 2018 Boston Music Awards’ R&B Artist of the Year, was featured in Marie Claire Magazine, and released her debut album “Freedom” this past spring.

Her love of performance took shape in the southern clime of Charleston, South Carolina, where she grew up in a musical family with strong Celtic roots. After moving to Boston in 2013, she discovered a rich musical scene where she could explore new musical genres and grow as an artist. Before long, she was turning her poetry into songs.

Using music to process her own experiences, VQnC gives emotions new life, and creates a space for listeners find their own meaning. Her signature bass lines, catchy melodies, and meditative repetitions embrace imperfection while celebrating self-care and self-love.

With a bright, colorful aesthetic and an ever-growing sequin collection, she channels the queenliness of disco and the soulful flair of female singers like Erykah Badu and Stevie Nicks. VQnC fronted Boston’s funk-rock band, Dr. Fidelity and toured with the improvisational electronic collective, GoldBloc. She has performed at the House Of Blues, Brighton Music Hall, The Institute of Contemporary Art, The Box, and the Knitting Factory. VQnC has also shared the stage with other artists such as Busty and the Bass, Robert DeLong, WET, ExMag, Congo Sanchez, Snoh Allegra, and Quantic.
