Meet Strae – a fearless female pop artist and songwriter who refers to herself as a “music-maker, urban nomad and Japanophile.”

Last week, Strae released “Lioness”, the first single off of her upcoming EP set for release next year. “Lioness” is available now for purchase on iTunes.

“The track was born out of several frustrating relationships, both romantic and platonic, where men reacted negatively to my strong sense of confidence and independence. This song is for the bold and wild women out there who are beautiful just as they are, and for the men who – instead of being intimidated by powerful women – respect them for their fierceness,”, proclaims Strae of her powerful debut track.

Lyrics and melody were written by Strae and produced by Strae and Brandon Zedaker.
