ABOUT

Love to blend genres and play with feminine and masculine vocal qualities. I am a Miami native, now in NYC. I've been singing all my life (in the past few years training professionally) and play rhythm guitar/ use piano for composition. I am looking to find fellow musicians interested in forming a soul/ funk rock band and writing original music as well as working on covers.

I currently sing with another band but I have pretty flexible availability on the evenings and weekends. Making music influenced by all sorts throughout the world (ranging from American Soul, Celtic folk, Opera, glam rock, Jazz and more) is my passion. I love blending vocal stylings influenced by many. But in particular I think Stevie Wonder is as close to Genius as they come.

I particularly enjoy playing with the boundaries of what are considered traditional female/ male vocals and singing in a contralto range.

Special Skills:
Can play rhythm guitar
Am also a filmmaker and editor that can cut together live tapings to build a reel.
Can sing in Spanish
