Nan Turner

Vocally, she's the missing link between Kathleen Hanna and Juliana Hatfield, with a wail matched only by her whisper. The Lucy Ricardo of indie rock, her zany, goof-ball spirit is cut only by the fierce sexuality of her drumming style (see Schwervon!). Raised on the outskirts of Olympia, Nan was in London studying theater when the riot grrrl movement seduced her into a life of rock n' roll. After several years with the power-pop girl band Bionic Finger, Nan went solo with her jangly, eclectic EP, Leg Out, but her one-woman act soon morphed into the all-girl Pantsuit. After touring the UK with their French-released The Path From the House to the Lawn, Pantsuit established itself as a virtual gland of playful melodies, moody sounds, and old-school feminist ferocity.

Currently, Nan performs raps and indie pop as a solo act or with a rotating cast of musicians and dancers called Nan & The One Nite Stands. Her newest EP "Construction of a Champ" is out now on Olive Juice Music.
