OBX Pride Festival Entertainment

OBX Pridefest MC Jennifer Warner

Hailing from Durham, North Carolina, Emily Musolino has been crafting a unique soulful sound for nearly two decades. Heavily influenced by powerhouse vocalists like Etta James and guitarists like Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Emily’s music is a dynamic mix of blues and shredding rock guitar with hints of classic outlaw country.

Growing up LGBT in the southeast, Musolino finds an emotional outlet by writing raw, vulnerable stories in her songs with strong queer and feminist messaging. Studio owner, producer, singer-songwriter, Berklee graduate – Emily Musolino is a unique musical talent that fits in no bounded box and brings an energetic excitement to every crowd, stage, and venue that experiences her performances.

Sara “Sass” Siders, is a singer/songwriter based out of central Illinois. Sass’ sound mixes elements of blues, rock, country, hip-hop, R&B, and soul, creating a unique style all her own. Add in that raspy, sultry voice and one-of-a-kind covers, she’s guaranteed to leave you speechless and wanting more.

Other Info: Single available on streaming platforms – “Good As Gold” by Sass Full original album to be released this summer.
