ABOUT

Trans Female Bassist, Guitarist, Synth lover:
Interested in playing bass primarily. Writing and performing funky, groove based and perhaps danceable songs. Not necessarily Pop... but things that make your head bang involuntarily, ya know?
Looking to play soulful, deep, hook based basslines. Love juicy synth pads and textures. Looking for intelligent songwriting with a strong sense of groove.
Hoping to find a band to perform with or a songwriting project to record on. That being said, I'm also an aspiring home producer/engineer with recording tastes on the downtempo side of things. Always on the hunt for female vocalists who have that Tracy Thorn(Everything But The Girl) and Sia(Zero 7) kind of vibe. Soft and smooth, kinda Sade-like to complete the chillout effect.
