Cher Von

Banyan Tree EP

CJ Boyd brought to us the lovely, experimental sounds of Cher Von and her Banyan Tree EP. This is a great entry point for anyone curious about exploring experimental music.

CJ Boyd dropped a live album, via Gold Lion Arts, in February of 2022. All of the proceeds go directly to the Tucson Abortion Support Collective! Please go out and support our lovely guest, and most importantly, the idea that women, trans people, and gender nonconforming individuals have ownership over their own bodies and the basic human right to have safe access to abortions.
