ABOUT

I'm a classically trained flutist, a semi-classically trained vocalist (who is still looking for a vocal style), a piano player, and a composer. I have a degree (woo hoo) from UT in music composition, and am slowly finishing up a second degree in sound recording technologies at Texas State. I have worked in the studio, and am comfortable singing/playing with a pair of headphones on and a mic in my face. I also know how valuable studio time is, and how important practice is. I'm a very nice person, easy to get along with, and a very talented musician.

Influences

This is a big list. My composing style is something like minimalist Beethoven, with some Daft Punk and Enya thrown in. It varies depending on the piece.

My song writing style is all over the place right now. I'm a beginner lyricist, so most of my stuff has been co-written up to now with someone else doing the lyrics. I really enjoy Imogen Heap's sound, Enya again, some Natasha Bedingfield, some Red Hot Chili Peppers. I love playing with sound, doing stuff aurally that matches the emotional tone of the song.

EQUIPMENT

I've got a teensy at-home-studio. Can bring my own electric piano if need be. I've got a flute, a few shakers, and if necessary I can load up a couple of pretty decent speakers to at least power the piano, which doesn't have built-in speakers. I've got a handful of microphones: a Shure SM-58 and a Mogami vocal mic (condenser). I've got a handful of mic cables. That's about all I could transport.
