ABOUT

Vocalist, keyboardist, songwriter. I've been playing music and recording songs by myself and would like to perform with others. Being that I am currently in college, I cannot commit to music full-time (e.g. I can't tour while classes are in session). However, I am still very serious about music, and unless it comes at the expense of academics, I follow through with any and all commitments.

While I have my own sensibilities (indicated in the influences section), I am very adaptable and pick up new material quickly, being very good at playing by ear (I cannot read any form of written music). If a song featuring my instrument doesn't have a part figured out for it, though, I can easily figure one out myself. I am transgender (female-to-male) and have had no medical procedures that affect the sound of my voice (nor do I plan to in the foreseeable future); I am told that my vocals sound either feminine or gender-neutral. If you are looking for a female vocalist for reasons solely relating to how such a voice sounds, I have no problem with filling that position as long as it's accepted that my voice is female in sound only.

If you are a student at Cal State Long Beach, please contact me, as I am a student there as well and even if we don't work together musically, it would just be legitimately cool to connect with fellow musicians who go to the same college as me.
