A hopeful romantic writing original music decorated with whimsical vocals...
I've been singing since I could talk, dancing since I could walk, and making up goofy little song and dance numbers since the age of five or so... Yes, we have many of them recorded on home video LOL... When I was eight or nine I had the opportunity to take piano lessons for a couple years. I continued singing, thus preserving my ability to read music. When I was around the age of fifteen, a beautiful acoustic Martin guitar was gifted to my family and I proceeded to teach my left-handed self first: how to pick the dang thing up the right way, then how to play it ;). I would eventually go on to take formal guitar lessons, as well as bass guitar lessons, followed by a couple semesters of instruction on a drum kit while simultaneously earning a two-year Recording Arts Certificate at my local community college on Music scholarship! I enjoy playing out at coffee shops, art festivals, fundraisers, and weddings. Lately I've been experimenting with growing my sound and delving deeper into the waters of fanciful audio production :). It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance.
Influences & Inspiration
As a kid in the 90s and a teenager in the 2000s, you can imagine the types of things I was listening to that shaped my sound and love of music early on - things like the Spin Doctors, Sugar Ray, Switchfoot, Avril Lavigne, Britney Spears, and the Spice Girls played on the radio, and I'd do my best to capture them between commercials on my tape recorder.
I'd say I fall in the genres of indie, folk rock, alt rock, easy listening.
I've been told I sound like/remind people of Regina Spektor, Ingrid Michaelson, Caroline Polachek, Joni Mitchell, Colbie Callait, Jack Johnson. I enjoy covering everything from Rihanna to Coldplay, Taylor Swift to Underoath.
