Tae Phoenix

We are rising

My name is Tae Phoenix and I am an activist performer. I want everyone to know that freedom is not a zero-sum game. Our nation can only be truly free when we end all forms of oppression and respect the rights and inherent worth of every human being.

 

That's why I'm using original protest music to activate people across the country to resist Donald Trump's authoritarian and white supremacist agenda and reclaim our government.

We Shall Not Be Moved

Music is one of the most valuable (and underrated) tools that organizers have to activate and coordinate movements. I first experienced this viscerally at the protest that inspired me to write this adaptation of “We Shall Not Be Moved.”

Brave

Phoenix & Dragon

This is the version of Sara Bareilles’ “Brave” that I was singing when I was arrested in the Senate’s Russell Rotunda on January 15, 2020.

I recorded “Brave” as part of a new supergroup – Phoenix & Dragon – that grew out of the “Swarm the Senate” / Remove Trump movement. Dragon is the lead singer of the band The Resistance Company and we immediately connected, both as as artists and activists, during the Remove Trump fight.
