ABOUT

Grew up singing in church, was in an acoustic Christian band about 15 years ago in college on an off. A couple years ago, I got the cojones to let people hear an original song and luckily it was met with a wave of support as I write here and there also.

I'm currently playing out as an acoustic trio, on lead vocals. The idea was to gain experience playing out. I was with a rock band for a bit, but COVID happened, and it's important that my family be as safe as possible, and they want to continue to perform indoors, and I just can't take the risk. With them I was doing- Grace Potter, heart, aerosmith, Pink, some country, etc.

I'd like to form another band ultimately, an acoustic situation at least to start, definitely want gigs in the future with open minded and diverse members. I like inspiring and conscious music and would like to get more comfortable performing. I've got the singing part, the performing part is the one that hasn't come easily. I don't feel an insatiable need to have all eyes on me at all times, which is why I want a band, and enjoy collaborating more than anything.

You can reach me at dinaataute at the google mail to chat.
