Disclaimer: I live in Orange County and Los Angeles (Pasadena, Downtown, SGV area) interchangeably. I am flexible with location.
Hello! I'm a female musician rooted in classical music, and have been playing in orchestras and singing in choirs for 10+ years. My vocal range extends from Soprano to Alto. Depending on the the amount of warming up I do, I can extend my range even more. I played the piano (3), violin (9), upright bass/electric bass (3), and have been singing for 4 years. For the past 2 years, I have been singing in a vocal jazz ensemble of 15 members and 4 different voices. As of late, I have been practicing my harsh vocals (screaming, growling, etc.).
I have slight experience with playing in a band. It has always been a lifelong dream for me to start/be in a band. I am open to experimentation, I am outgoing, easy to work with, a team player, entertaining to be around, and have a huge passion for music. I have a VERY sharp ear, and am always open to constructive criticism, as well as offering help and advice to fellow musicians as well. I'd like to have a practice band just to warm up to the intimate situation, and if real chemistry exists, and skills are present and ever improving, then I would love to help the band get on the map.
Ultimately, because of my lack of experience, I hope that I can find a band that is patient enough to work with me--the results, I promise, will be worthwhile. Just give me a chance.

Dir en grey is my single BIGGEST influence. Similar to them, I want to transcend the label of genres.
Other influences: Chthonic, ENVY, Arch Enemy, The Cure, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Muse, ETHS, The GazettE, L'arc~en~ciel, Hyde, D'espairsray, LUNA SEA, X Japan, D, Japanese Rock, Visual Kei, Mozart, Chopin, Brahms, Liszt, Tchaikovsky, etc.
My musical taste is very broad, spanning various genres and various countries. But, my heart predominantly lies in the underground Japanese music scene.
