Hello! I am a singer-songwriter who specializes in piano and guitar acoustic performances. I perform original songs as well as well-known current and classic popular songs. If you'd like some background music at a private party or a front stage show and like music similar to Sarah McLachlan, Jewel, etc., I'm your girl! :) I look forward to hearing from you!
Price Range: $50/hr
Gig Length: 30 - 90 minutes
What to Expect
I will bring my professional keyboard and acoustic electric guitar. I am a professional musician, singer/songwriter with well-known current and classic cover songs, as well as original songs. I will arrive a minimum of 30-45 minutes early to set up, will engage with the audience as much or as little as desired, and will tailor any performances, songs, set lists, etc., to the occasion.
musician, singer, songwriter, artist, lover, dreamer, friend.
i took the practical road in life. directly after high school i went to uc santa cruz and earned a bachelors degree in economics, then went to uc berkeley and earned a bachelors degree in civil engineering. after graduating i came back and worked in my hometown at a civiil engineering firm, ultimately realizing that my creativity couldn't find a home for itself, and switched to a career in teaching after a few years in the engineering field. i have been writing songs, painting, and drawing from a very young age, but have just recently finished my first studio album, "depths of me." i'm currently focusing my public efforts on my music, but truly hope to incorporate my artwork in the future. please stay awhile, look around, and enjoy the "depths of me."
I play the piano and the guitar, and perform original piano and guitar songs, as well as well-known current and classic cover songs. please contact me for mellow acoustic background music at a party and/or for opening concerts for more well-known seasoned musicians/bands. I have all of my own instruments and equipment to bring, but would need a sound system, microphone(s), mic stands, and monitors to be able to put on a professional show. thank you very much for your consideration! :)
