Shomi Noise is a musician, DJ, zine writer, and a self–proclaimed music nerd. She is heavily influenced by Riot Grrrl, D.I.Y., and Queercore sounds of the 90s and likes to mix these genres up with Southern Crunk music, top 40 pop, electro, house, hip-hop, reggae, and anything else that gets people dancing.

She is working on the 4th volume of her zine, which narrates some of her lived experiences based on the intersectionality of culture, race, class, sexuality and punk rock. - via RUCKUSARTS
