Seattle singer-rapper Paradame has an alluring way about her, with music that deviates from the commercial sounds of the genres it bridges while still remaining accessible. As both a solo artist and one-half of the experimental hip hop group Active I , Paradame has been busy paving her own lane as an artist since her debut on Audiodose Records in 2011. Her blending of dark electronica and R&B laced with smooth but fiery vocals has continued to acuminate throughout the course of releasing two solo albums, in addition to two albums with Active I, and over 20 guest features on various mixtapes and EPs.

Paradame’s songwriting skill and live performances display an unmistakable uniqueness and attitude, coupled perfectly by producer J.Lee Mezus’ bass-heavy rhythms, which have been hailed by industry critics and fans alike. Altogether, her sound heavily rooted in hip hop, draws from various influences, fusing elements of dark wave, R&B, soul, and punk rock. With an energy often laced with darkness, yet wielding a message of light, she’s earned the meaning of her name – the paradoxical dame.
