Lady Midnight is the artistic persona of Adriana Rimpel, the ethereal vocalist and performance artist who draws upon her multidisciplinary background in visual art, dance and Afro-Caribbean-indigenous roots to create work that timelessly reflects our collective lives. City Pages named Lady Midnight “Best Twin Cities Vocalist of 2017” and named her highly anticipated debut album, Death Before Mourning, “Best Album of 2020.” As Lady Midnight, she has performed at The Red Rocks Amphitheatre, scored a silent film for visual artist Kara Walker and performed with internationally acclaimed icons  Common, Moby, Andra Day, and Aloe Blacc, among others. Recently, she has stepped into the realm of curating virtual reality performances as she continues to hold space for Black, Indigenous, people of color, refugee and immigrant youth within her creative residencies. Lady Midnight has dedicated her life to using the arts as a power for change and confronting trauma.
