"Thick Thighs are meant to climb, evolve, empower, and conquer. I was
going through some tough times when I wrote “Thick Thighs” off of my
debut EP Dreamland Extended, released via LFP/Capitol Records. It’s
hard to stay tough as a woman in this industry and country, but it’s a lot
easier to remember your worth when you surround yourself with
powerful, loving, and positive women. This tour is about bringing that
feeling of lady power, love, and fun to life. Plainfacedgirl and Maria Ellis
are two of the baddest women I met during our time at Berklee College
of Music, and they make my best better. We recognize the power in
women lifting up other women up and want to celebrate that. By striving
to be our most authentic realest versions of ourselves and leading by
example, we give others permission to do the same for themselves. We
intend to get our audiences moving by exuding empowering, bad gal
energy through our performances. Part of the money we earn from the
tour will go to a foundation that helps women fighting opioid addiction."

Maria Ellis
Maria Ellis is a 21 year old pop singer, songwriter and musician from Long Island, New York, attending Berklee College of Music.

Maria's genuine approach stems from her sincere love of music and desire to make music that is as honest as possible. Her wistful voice and unapologetic sound attracts listeners of all types and ages.

Preferring to be writer, composer, producer, and performer of all her own work, she is committed to making music that rises to the level of art.

Maria grew up to be a fan of many genres, but focuses on Pop and R&B. Maria's style musically links all these genres together with an attitude. Citing Lana Del Rey, Kurt Cobain, and Rihanna as her biggest influencers, Maria creates music that is instantly likeable.

Vocally, Maria's style is all her own, possessing great range, thanks to the help of her vocal coach, Don Lawrence who has trained the likes of Lady Gaga, Bono and Christina Aguilera.

Maria's musicality is probably her most impressive facet. At the age of 6, she taught herself piano. And at 12, the acoustic and electric guitar. Now 20, Maria plays and writes equally well on piano, guitar and other instruments.

Maria is a natural performer and is completely at ease in front of small and large audiences. She has appeared in many live venues since the age of ten, including performances at New York's The Mercury Lounge, The Bitter End, Cutting Room, "Save the Bay" Concert in the Hamptons and opening for Rick Derringer at the Riverhead Theater, New York.

Hoping that others will find inspiration through her songs, Maria’s ultimate goal in life is to touch other people’s lives with her music.
plainfacedgirl is a Boston based artist who
creates a visual/audial experience unlike
any other. Without fear, she takes over the
stage to tell a story using props and fun
surprises that keep her audience engaged.. Her last two singles “gf” and “for no reason”
have created a lot of buzz on the East Coast. With her debut album doubledutch coming
out this August, plainfacedgirl hopes to
reach a wide audience to inspire weirdness
and the celebration of diversity.
