I am a spunky, smart and sexy female singer looking for a fun and talented group of musicians. I am hoping my mix of singing styles and bubbly personality will add character to a new or existing local cover band that travels the metro area.
I currently enjoy singing for my kids as well as practicing on karaoke stages. Nothing compares to getting up there and having conversations through music. Making people feel something...that is why I sing. I also love recording and mixing in my home. I've never really believed in pitch-correcting my voice but rather trying to perfect it through hard work, so I often record one take and see what happens. The flaws create raw emotions and a vulnerability that I prefer. I think it speaks more clearly to those listening.
To summarize my experience, I have formal training in classical, pop and jazz styles. I have branched out on my own to alternative, heavy metal, folk, blues, pop, R&B, and Broadway styles. My newest endeavor has been incorporating some rap techniques. Throughout my school career I competed in vocal competitions, performed with a Minnesota state concert choir and played the role of Maria in West Side Story. After graduation I was honored to be one of four Minnesotans chosen for a European choir/band tour. I then spent nearly 20 years as a musical minister and have sung at several weddings and family funerals.
I am looking to do more with my singing since I am no longer sharing my voice with church-goers. If you are looking for a leading lady or trying to start up a new band in the southern metro, feel free to check out my sample recordings and send me a message or email me at betsycherryATcherryartisticsDOTcom if interested! :) ~ betsy
