Scout the Wise (they/he)
Scout Parker is a Black, Transgender, Non-Binary, artist and musician who performs under the name Scout the Wise. While their electronic pop music sounds youthful and current, he has been performing for more than a decade—starting with posting YouTube videos and self-releasing albums. Scout’s sound has evolved from acoustic guitar and banjo-driven folk to a beat-heavy R&B and emo-influenced indie pop reminiscent of Frank Ocean or James Blake.
Alt-rock artist Madde will be bringing her latest album The Salt to Walk On to the Annex stage. Their sound is inspired by punk and rock artists like Green Day, The White Stripes and The Clash performed with a nod to Riot grrrl style.
Madde is from Chico, California and has been releasing music since 2014. They moved to Los Angeles in 2017 to start working on her degree in songwriting at Los Angeles College of Music. Madde dropped out of college in 2019 and began touring and playing shows as the duo The Viles. Now, Madde is writing, recording and performing her own music as well as working with multiple musicians.
