Luiza’s passion for music and lyrics came from her early stages in life. Living half of her live in the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro, she feels very connected with the nature and the fauna in a way she can’t quite describe. She produces and writes her own music and is starting to enter the world of video editing. Luiza is very much excited to be part of a team that celebrates womxn of all kinds, and she is also proud to be a transfemme witch.

Editorial / Artist Liasion
Deanna’s life force is music. Sharing the music she loves and supporting her favorite artists (especially womxn) has always come naturally to her, and has led her to write for music blogs like The Wild Honey Pie, The Alternative, and of course, Indie Witches. She has experience as a radio DJ, live show host, store manager and event coordinator. Now, Deanna is the label manager & co-owner of the indie label, EggHunt Records and a tour publicist with Clandestine Label Services. She’d love to own a music venue someday. She’s ambitious and has an affinity for singing/songwriting, her corgi pup, vintage clothing, vinyl, flowers, laughter, traveling, the greatness of the sky, Patti Smith, a good cup of coffee, dancing, the tiny pickles on charcuterie boards, and spending time with people she loves.
