I'm not an R&B or Motown girl - my experience is in rock, hard rock, new wave, folk, and classic rock. I pride myself on not being a diva! I'm a team player who knows the meaning of being a great bandmate and chipping in to get things done - if that means loading in or out of a gig, I'm there, and not afraid to ruin my mainicure. HA! Looking for like minded musicians who can appreciate a bandmate who's willing to go the extra mile. Have experience with social media promotion and increasing fan base.
