"What a beautiful, expressive voice! If you get a chance, go see her live in her duo, Ivylane."

I have the privilege of making music for 9+ years with friend and fabulous guitarist Ivan Lee - together we are IvyLane! Lending harmonies to his originals, and lead vocals on new interpretations of our favorite cover tunes, we perform everything from classic Yes to the Beatles to Jason Mraz and Dave Matthews. / ./ivylanetunes and .IvyLaneTunes

I've also been sitting in with "the boys" of Miles From Chicago, lending female vocals to this all-star band's lineup of rock, pop, blues, & R&B dance tunes...music to get you moving! From time to time I join 3 Trick Pony on vocals, performing always live, always danceable tunes of the 70s, 80s, 90s, and today. And when the stars align I get to perform with some of the top jazz talent in the Greater Seattle Area.

Previously, I enjoyed my time as lead female vocalist for 7.5 years for the Seattle area's high-energy band The Tropics, performing everything from Elvis and Etta to No Doubt and Aerosmith and everything danceable in between.

Vocal Training:
I've worked with Robert Lunte at The Vocalist Studio International here in Seattle for some serious, cutting-edge vocal training (.thevocaliststudio), am currently working with Dr. Kari Ragan & Jordyn Day, and am also studying with the one and only jazz queen Greta Matassa.
