Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm female vocalist with a broad range both vocally and musically. I'm presently looking for my next band family and am open to inquiries.

My style and range is similar to Ariana Grande, Adele, Natasha Bedingfield, and Ann Wilson. I am also skilled at, and enjoy covering, tunes from the following artists/bands: Pink, Lady GaGa, Albania Morissette, Sia, Heart, Whitney Houston, Joss Stone, Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks, Melissa Ethridge, Evanescence, Journey, Aerosmith... the list goes on.

I'm very good at harmonizing with just about any song. My professional experience has always been as a lead vocalist with the bands I've worked with previously, but I'm open to a spot doing background vocals as well.

I also play hand percussion and have 3 djembes, 1 ashiku, 1 cajoniku and a tambourine. I typically play myn14" ashiku, 12" djembe, and 10" cajoniku as a set. I'd really like to expand my skills and learn to play a full drum kit, but I don't have my own set to practice on yet. I also play tenor sax, but it's been a minute.

Another talent I can offer is hoop dance and fiber whip dancing. In case you don't know what that is, feel free to check out this video of me performing with LED hoops (I'm the one on the right, in the skirt)…

I live in Chesterfield, MO and am willing to drive up to 30 minutes from my location for practice, and however far is needed for a paying gig. I'm hoping to find a band that is serious about progressing to playing gigs pretty quickly and is trying to play covers of both newer releases and the classics, possibly even originals.

I'm very vocally versatile and can sing comfortably from a D3 to a G5 so I have quite a hefty range.
