Band to Join.

ABOUT

Okay, I have a vintage kind of sound and a vintage kind of look. Also, I composes masses on the side, and seem to have a talent for string arrangements especially. I am trained vocalist (pop/rock, not classical) in addition to being a keyboardist. My voice started out sounding like Sarah McLachlan but I've added my own personal textures,style, and groove over the years.

Influences

Do 1930's style jazz a la Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Cherry Poppin' Daddy's only it sounds different when I do it because a) I sing like a girl cuz I am a girl; and b) I am a currently a solo act with vox and piano only. Also really into two-ton ska like The Specials and The English Beat. I confess I like groovy sixties organ in the vein of the Mysterions and Smashmouth, and retro suitcase pianos.

EQUIPMENT

I play a lot of Kurzweil equipment -- use a lightweight 88 key Kurz when playing out with a couple of rack synths in order to keep my setup light and sane. I sing with an AKG wireless mic cuz boom stands annoy me. I have a six channel unkillable Peavey PA if needed.
