Dubbed "One of the best folk-rock artists in the country", transgender songwriter Namoli Brennet has been touring and performing since 2002 when she hit the road with her first CD. 1000-plus shows and 200,000 miles later, her gritty, honest folk has attracted a large and extremely loyal fanbase. She's self-released 10 CDs, including her latest, "Live", which was recorded over the course of 6 months and 14,000 miles. Her poignant, introspective and sometimes hard-hitting music has won praise and accolades from critics and fans alike, and Zocalo magazine calls her music "Gorgeous and introspective." She's been nominated for numerous OUTmusic awards and is also featured in the film "Out In The Silence" which details the struggle of a gay teen growing up in rural Pennsylvania. Namoli spends 8 to 9 months a year touring and performing, most commonly playing solo with an acoustic guitar, and was one of the headliners at DC Pride back in 2004.
