SEEKING

Vocalist, Vocalist - Soprano.

ABOUT

Accomplished pianist playing for The Teal Street Band. Extensive performance experience both as a soloist, and in multiple band projects. I have chops but love playing colorful chord voicings in the middle of the keyboard to support the singer and the band. I am equally at home on piano, organ or synthesizer and experienced in sound design. I also play acoustic guitar, bass, and sing background vocals. I have recorded with multiple bands including studio work for a Nashville recording artist.

Influences

I grew up listening to, and playing music by iconic bands with amazing piano/keyboard players. Some examples are Jon Lord (Deep Purple), Keith Emerson (ELP), Donald Fagen (Steely Dan), Danny Federici (Bruce Springsteen), Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones/Allman Brothers), and Benmont Tench (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers). And of course Billy Joel, Elton John, and Bruce Hornsby.

Our band is back in the studio working on a new format which is an 80's NEW WAVE tribute band. Some of the artist we are covering include Tears for Fears, Belinda Carlisle, Simple Minds, B-52s and many others.
