Athena Reich is an anarcho-feminist cabaret-punk pop star. Her music speaks boldly about issues of violence, sexuality and peace. She combines a chilling 4-octave range voice with gorgeous piano and guitar arrangements. Think Aimee Mann, Diamanda Galas, Ani DiFranco, Laurie Anderson and Tori Amos with a theatrical twist. Athena tours constantly across North America, and has opened for Sarah McLauchlan and Jim Carrey. She is author and star of "Athena Under Attack" (a one-act rock opera about 9/11, cycles of abuse & peace) that has been produced by various theaters and festivals across the continent. Most recently, Athena released her 3rd CD, "Stranger Things Have Happened" which features a full band with quirky string and horn arrangements. She has been featured in the Montreal Gazette, She Magazine, GO NYC, Big Breakfast TV and more. And, she just got a national distribution deal with Goldenrod music! Athena is constantly pushing boundaries, mocking taboo, and spitting truth.
