ABOUT

Current project:
2 years - Open Bar the Band, rock & etc. covers - Everything from Motley Crue to The Spice Girls. Open Bar is a four piece band of dedicated professional musicians whose direction for the future is taking the songs nobody dares to cover and creating something amazing.

Past projects:
3 years - Hotwired…Lead vocals for original hard rock band (Our originals vary from hard rock/metal/pop punk/blues rock) with a great history playing shows at the Whisky a Go Go, Rainbow Room, Viper Room, Key Club, the Roxy, The Joint and several other famed Hollywood clubs. Hotwired has opened for the likes of Lita Ford, Great White, Kix and more. Project is currently on hiatus.

3 years - Backup & lead vocals in past Temecula cover/originals band, GSM.

About me:
Sincerely the nicest person you'd ever meet. Easy-going. Always bettering myself. I believe in humility. No ego issues here. Drug & smoke free but don't care what others do as long as it's not derailing gigs. GREAT sense of humor, not offended easily. Just a relatable, goofy gal who tries to make everyone feel at ease. Also have the world's most understanding, amazing fiancé who is a former professional musician and totally gets the gig lifestyle.

What I DO:
Varied vocalist with years of performance experience. Love singing many different genres and styles from metal to opera and everything in between. I do all I can to improve. Currently taking lessons, re-learning music theory I've forgotten, etc. 10 year clarinetist - haha (don't ask), self-taught guitarist who doesn't really play anymore and has put more focus into vocal technique over the past 5 years. I understand basic theory and strive to be the type of vocalist musicians enjoy working with. Love collaborating on writing songs.

What I'm looking for?
Above all, a good, positive environment with encouraging, kind people. I'd love to take part in more local projects, cover bands, original bands, tribute projects, etc. Music is a part of my soul. It's not about money or ego for me. If you get "that feeling" when you play, you get me. It's something you NEED to do. Even better when you find a group of weirdos to make loud noise with.

Influences

Led Zeppelin, Heart, Guns 'n Roses, Paramore, Van Halen (Roth & Hagar!), Nightwish, Evanescence...And those are just the rock influences. Too many to list. I listen to a ridiculously wide variety of music and enjoy singing everything from R&B, country, rock, etc. I'm a pretty solid rock singer, right now, but eventually would like to explore blues, R&B, country a little more since my voice lends itself very well to those genres. While I'm still young enough to rock out, I will rock the hell out!
