ABOUT

I've been making music since I was a child. My influence began back in the 80's when I heard a McDonalds commercial on the television. It was about a young girl who was performing Fur Elise at a recital while dreaming about her cheeseburger and fries. At that moment, I sat down at our upright piano and began playing Fur Elise by ear. From that day forward, I was in piano lessons, performing on stage, singing and accompanying the high school choir, playing in bands and leading them.

Today, I'm simply looking for a group of humble, honest, and talented individuals who enjoy making music. While I am a classically trained pianist, I can fit in well with a strong rhythm section, or play lead when piano lead is desired. Piano was my first love, but singing is my passion. While I love to find those sweet harmonies, I also enjoy singing lead and feel confident in doing so. My singing abilities are quite diverse, as my voice can range from Pat Benetar to Norah Jones to Whitney Houston. I can play and sing if necessary, but lack the equipment (other than a piano at home that I use to practice on).

I'm currently involved in a cover band, but the end is near as many of the members are retiring and entering a new chapter of their lives (one that does not include practicing OR performing). I'd like to gig more and am just waiting for the right opportunity. In the meantime, I strive to stay active in music and utilize these gifts and talents to bring joy and inspiration to those who love music as much as I do.

If I may sound like what you're looking for, feel free to message me. I'd love to connect and see if we are a good fit!
