Our Story

Queen Crescent is a heavy psychedelic rock band from the San Francisco/Oakland, CA.  We are composed of Andrea Genevieve (guitar, vocals), Amy Martinez (drums, percussion), Eni Loicy Pela (bass, vocals), and Melissa Vu (flute, vocals).  We started this band with a question:  what would it be like to put four women of color musicians obsessed with 60s-70s era heavy rock n roll in a room and have them start a band?  The answer:  Killer riffs and paradigm shifts. 

Although we draw greatly from heavy rock acts of the past such as Los Dug Dugs, Flower Travellin Band, Ngozi Family, Nahuatl, and Black Sabbath (among so many others), the music we create is not merely an imitation of things that came before.  With total disregard to Western concepts of linear time, we have positioned ourselves as the mistresses of our own realities.  Time has no meaning.  Rock n roll is eternal.  We make music how we want to hear it and we speak our truths without hesitation. 

Our Vision

This September 2014 we are recording our very first album with the venerable sound engineer Tim Green.  Staying true to how authentic rock n roll music SHOULD be heard, we are planning on releasing our album primarily on vinyl format (digital and tape will be available too). 

This album will be our first deep exploration into the world of recording with our current lineup.  We have already spent months at our practice space song writing and preparing ourselves for this great adventure.  The album will take approximately 4 days to record and 3 days to mix.  After that, we will have it mastered and then sent off to the plant to be pressed.  When it’s done we envision presenting to the world a record full of heaviness, beauty, and depth.  We can’t wait to share our music with you. 

We want to take this QUEEN CRESCENT mother ship to the astral plane and we need your help to make our dreams come true!

The Impact

With the rediscovery of bands like Death and the wider acceptance of women and brown folks taking positions of power within popular culture, rock n roll is slowly climbing out of the pit of hegemony that it has been in for years now.  By supporting our project, you help to support one very passionate band in this music revolution for months, if not years, to come! 

Be it large or small, your contribution will make all the difference to our campaign.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your love and support.  Keep rock n roll alive!

What's It Gonna Take?

We need to raise $6,000 to record this album.

Here is how our budget breaks down:

  • $2,000 – 4 days recording and 3 days mixing at a professional studio, paying our sound engineer
  • $2,000 – Pressing the record (12inch), inserts, sleeves, jackets, etc.
  • $200 – Mastering
  • $200 – Album art
  • $200 – Videographer fee

  • $200 – Online promotion
  • $100 – Album insert graphic design
