Sapphire is a pop-punk, singer-songwriter group composed of Indigo Koonce (they/them) on lead guitar, Henry Breen (he/him) on drums, Ava Levy (she/her) on vocals and guitar, and Lily Govrik (she/her) on vocals and bass. Ava Levy and Lily Govrik have been playing music with their artistic families since they were toddlers. When they met in high school, they knew they needed to begin writing and performing music together. Ava and Lily attended Saint Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists, where they met Indi and Henry. While there, they were immersed in the teenage, DIY music scene and created Sapphire with the goal of introducing more non-cis men into the Minneapolis music scene. They want to show younger girls, non cis men, and people of color that there is a place for them in the music scene.”
This event also will broadcast live on Radio K and on Northrop's Facebook page.
