- Sharlese Metcalf began her radio career at Green River Community College in 2001 hosting their Northwest music focused show Local Motion on KGRG. She attained her Broadcasting Certificate from Green River, and was offered a job at Jones Radio Networks. There, she worked on Classic Country and Top 40 shows as a production assistant. While at Jones Radio, she was given a KEXP internship to work on the show Audioasis as an assistant to the host and booker. In 2009, She became an Audioasis producer, and in 2012, was promoted to host and an Events Producer at KEXP. Sharlese additionally works as yoga DJ, promotes events at clubs around town as False Prophet, is a member of the TUF collective and currently serves as a member on the Seattle Music Commission.
- Reese Tanimura has served as the Program Director for the Rain City Rock Camp for Girls for the past three years and as a volunteer Teaching Artist starting in 2011. With a small-but-mighty team and a steadily growing community, Rain City Rock Camp for Girls empowers girls, women, and gender non-conforming individuals to engage their creative potential through music, champion equity and thrive in a community of allies and activists. Reese is extremely passionate about equity in education and has over a decade of experience teaching music in public schools in Hawaii, and in Washington’s Federal Way Public School District. From 2010 to 2014, she managed education and work-training programs for YouthCare, serving Seattle and South King County youth neglected by traditional school systems and impacted by homelessness and the juvenile justice system.
- Amy LP is a multimedia artist, audio engineer, vocalist, and teaching artist who got started on her artistic journey through Arts Corps’ All Access program 10 years ago. She is currently Arts Corps’ Media & Communications Manager, with the honor of being able to take photos and produce videos capturing the unique stories of young artists and changemakers. She is constantly inspired by the young artists she gets to work with and has recently started writing some fresh songs after a long hiatus.
This is a great opportunity to learn about the local Seattle music industry from professionals with experience to speak from. The panel will be open to Q&A so start thinking of those burning questions you want to ask! We hope to see you there!
