ABOUT

Seasoned Versatile, front Vocalist/Musician I play rhythm guitar (acoustic and electric) and enjoy writing songs & Lyrics.
I love to write songs, lyrics & music. I like to collaborate with writing projects. I'm available for studio work, backups or overlay. I can write jingles and have for a radio station.
I'm a bit rock and roll, mixed with soul. Bit of Adele, Nancy Wilson, Stevie Nicks, and pop/show like Sara Barielles. I've sang all types and enjoy "hit" songs. I want to sing a variety and be able to entertain and involve the audience.

I'm available and love to play in a group, but it must be already formed and not just starting out. I've been booked professionally through agencies and self-booked too. Either is fine as long as there are gigs

I'm versatile by keeping up to date, I can do anything from Adele, Amy Winehouse, Lady Gaga, Sia and keep up with the top hits on the radio as well as reach into my R&R past! I love blues and I can sing standard jazz songs, too.

I sing, play guitar (electric/acoustic) and some keyboard.
Beings that I'm usually the lead singer/front person. I'll trade with the keyboard player to play some of the keyboard parts, so he/she can sing a song, but I'm not THE keyboardist. I am good with either 5 players or I can work with 3 or 4 musicians!
My musical training comes from singing in choirs since I was in Elementary school, vocal ensemble and theory in college. I'm self-taught on guitar and have come a long way and took piano lessons in College.
