ABOUT

I am currently a member of Kat and the Mad Dogz, a country rock group based out of the Harrisburg area, as well as Watson & Wise, an acoustic duo based out of the Harrisburg area as well. I am interested in joining, or starting another acoustic group in this area to perform occasionally. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in getting together to jam, or collaborate on anything.

I have experience in the recording studio, and would be available to put violin, cello or vocals down for a recording.

I am a classically trained violinist that has branched out and can play anything from Celtic to bluegrass to blues to jazz to country to rock and even some hard rock. I enjoy it all. I have been playing the violin over 17 years now.

I have a fairly extensive range for vocals, I can get to a G below middle C, and an E above high C. I can sing nearly any genre asked. I prefer classic rock, jazz, country, and rock but am open to trying anything. I can sing soft and melodic, or can have grit and growl depending on what genre of music I'm performing. I'm from the south, and can pull my accent out of my back pocket easily.

EQUIPMENT

I have a 5 string Bridge Lyra electric violin. Technically, I am a violin and viola in one instrument, It expands my range drastically.

I have a very nice acoustic violin hand crafted in Austin, TX that has a very nice tone.

I also have a nice cello.

-I have a foot pedal that can do all the bells and whistles, including octaves below and above, harmonizer, wah wah pedal, distortion, chorus etc.

-I have a wireless system for my violin. Currently I am running back and forth on the stage and in the audience and wireless is the only option. I love being able to interact with people, and not worry about tripping over my own cord.

-I have a Shure SM58 microphone.
