This follows hot on the heels of her recent launch of "Born to Die", a song about 'broiler' chickens co-written with Robert Pearce.
MC Pony has performed in several Australian states and territories, and also in the US - both mainland and in Hawai'i. Her first official single "Happy Veganniversary" is a celebratory song for vegans to mark the anniversary of the date they went vegan:
The woman behind the ponytailed-character is Elizabeth Usher, who has done poetry readings, presentations, and performances in Australia, the US and the UK. She has big plans for 2017 (and beyond!), including starting to blog more than sporadically someday soon… Meanwhile, she’s busy writing more songs, working on some sweet new Veganthusiastic videos, and enjoying the memories of her 18th Veganniversary celebration back in June!
