ABOUT

I'm currently on Bandmix to find musicians in general who are interested in starting a new metal/metal-adjacent band. This allows me to use Planepacked (find it on Βandcamp) for more deeply personal solo material. Hit me up if you need a singer, a keyboardist, or general music nerd!

Heads up: I'm trans (she/her/hers). You'll have to respect that if you want to collaborate.

The best way by far to contact me is through my email address. I don't answer non-emergency calls at work, but if you need to contact me by phone, I'm generally available after 5:00 PM EST on weekdays.

I took 10 years of classical piano lessons in my childhood (up until I graduated from high school). I'm out of practice, but I'd say I have a good foundation to build up my skills to the point I need to perform the sort of music I like to write. I also started taking singing lessons in March 2020, and I'm feeling ever more confident about performing every day.

Influences

Hard question, Bandmix! I listen to a lot of metal music, but I also take trips into other genres, like progressive rock, electronica, and classical music. A few bands/musicians that resemble even vaguely my plans: Bal-Sagoth, Sigh, Igorrr, Blut Aus Nord, Devin Townsend, Samael, Autechre, etc.

Novation Launchkey 49 (MIDI keyboard)
