Her brash and lyrical performance is unmatched, raising the bar for both men and women in the music industry. Bates' versatility and ability to have a strong presence at every intersection gained her national and local recognition.

 

The epitome of self-made, the Midwest firecracker writes for herself and others, produces, engineers, writes and directs her own videos and is self-managed.
