ABOUT

I have been singing in the Seattle area for about 10 years professionally. My first band was a very successful dance band called, "BrickHouse," who played for mostly private, corporate parties. I was one of three lead front females for over 8 years with a very high energy, interactive group. I sang lead on a variety of genres from Pop (Madonna, Katy Perry, Michael Jackson), to R & B (Christina Aguilera), Rock (Journey, Evanescence, Pat Benatar, Avril Lavigne), and Country (Carrie Underwood, Sugarland, Dixie Chicks). I was also in a country/rock cover band called DoveLand that played a wide variety of dance music such as Top 40 Country/Rock, R & B, Pop and Classic Rock. Most recently, I joined a casino band called, “The Mix” that performs the casino circuit as well as private events. I’m also enjoying singing with a very talented harmony-centric R&B/Pop group called, “TKON”
With 3 other strong female lead singers, and 4 incredible musicians. I’m excited to start performing with this group next year! You can also find me filling in for a number of bands here in the Northwest.

Additionally, I'm working as a studio vocalist in the seattle area, recording with Various artists and studios. My choir background has helped given me a very good ear for harmonies and I enjoy singing many different genres of music including Pop, Country, Alternative and Classic Rock, Bluegrass and R & B.
