ABOUT

Greetings and Salutations...I am an experienced singer-songwriter with industry connections and a full album of semi-complete songs ready to collaborate and complete, record, preform and tour. Yes, I can write music and I am looking for a team to creatively mesh with. No BS here, no drama...this is BUSINESS....and with that said, one of the most kick-ass industries you can work in. Yes, I am serious about the WORK part. It’s a JOB that requires dedication, skill and a shit load of HEART and tenacity because there is going to be rejection and hard times and you have to push through those moments. It’s easier with the right team, especially with the right band members. This is not my first rodeo however, I understand that every experience is unique and I am a fair and reasonable person so long as you don’t waste my time and yours making excuses for being unreliable or unprepared. Though I am a woman in this industry, this site is not a dating site so I respectfully ask that if you are approaching me to play in a group together, we put aside the sexuality and save it for our music, songs and marketability. Yes, this industry is sexually driven and image-conscious (you do not have to be Jared Leto but it helps to have style and personality) and I intend to use all I have (and all I have learned) to continue to make great music, make us all a lot of money and continue a successful run as a musician and band. I sacrifice a LOT, including any relationships that get in the way of my commitment to my music career and you may have to be prepared to do the same is someone close to you is holding you back from success. I’ve been through it, hence why I’m starting over again, this time BALLS TO THE WALL...no one is holding me back. I’m looking for my brother and or sisters in arms, a group that won’t quit, won’t give up, won’t stop at any means necessary to do this. The world is our oyster...question is, are you hungry enough to go diving in the unchartered dangerous seas of life?

Influences

Everything from early Blues such as Nina Simone, Little Walter, Howlin Wolf to 60-70’s singer songwriters such as Carole King and James Taylor as well as classic country artists such as Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline, classic rock artist and 80’s rock artists such as U2, Fleetwood Mac, Journey, Heart to 80’s underground artists such as Patti Smith, New Order, The Cure, The Church, etc...90’s alternative such as Jeff Buckley, Portishead, Fiona Apple, etc.. Current music is mostly alt indie rock such as Black Keys, The Kills, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Sylvan Esso, Bishop Briggs, etc.. I write punk-rock influenced music with a sensual classic rock edge...but I don’t write to fill a genre, I write straight from the heart. I hope you are capable of playing the same way. I find the vast music is written this way, not to fill a nitche but instead one that when all the songs come together grow organically and create a audio experience for the audience that takes them on an emotional journey from start to finish and yet has a common thread that makes sense throughout.

EQUIPMENT

Kick ass vocal chords with a wide range from high falsetto to female high tenor....I challenge myself every day to push my ability as this is my primary instrument.

Fender Acoustic guitar and Gibson Les Paul Electric guitar. Fender Mustang 70W practice amp. Two mini 15W practice amps. Sennheisser e835 vocal mic and DR Pro stand. Reliable transportation to and from gigs and rehearsals.
