Octavia, aka Beth Dzierwa, is a Michigan native with a knack for mixing records. A typical day for Beth is simple: Music. Work. Education. Promoting. Music. Her desire to become a DJ was triggered by watching Magda spin at TV Lounge years ago. Octavia grew up listening to Allan Ester on the "After School Groove House Party". Her first gig was at the Women's Entertainment, a women's queer dance party in 2014. In 2016, she performed at the Hamtramck Music Festival for the Seraphine Collective. She has mixed records at Detroit Threads, Urban Bean, Marble Bar, and The Detroit Art Gallery of Windsor. Beth feels that all you need to be successful in life is to put in the time and patience to achieve your goals. She believes the challenges that she has encountered have created the fierce and indepedent artist she is today. Come see Octavia on Ferndale Pride's Dance Stage, sponsored by Arcadia Marketplace, from 6:15pm-8:00pm on Saturday, June 3rd!
