About ES WEX

Emily Wexler (ES Wex) is a queer Brooklyn-based musician/song-writer/teaching artist/activist who employs the transformative power of musical story-telling as a means toward collective liberation. She experiments with alternative r&b/electronic music and performs original music exploring personal and social transformation throughout NYC and beyond. In her local queer community in Brooklyn, ES Wex organizes multidisciplinary events to build community and center femme, queer, trans, and POC artists. She seeks to create spaces of healing, joy, contemplation, and empowerment through her music, and deeply values collaborations with other artists and the importance of building community through music.

She has also written and performed her electronic music in a number of social justice-oriented grassroots theater pieces, mainly focusing on queerness and immigration. When ES Wex is not performing, she directs EarSay Youth Voices, a performance workshop at The International High School at Laguardia Community College, a program for new immigrant teenagers to co-create short performance pieces that empower them to tell their stories.
