ABOUT

I am a 19 year old vocalist who is hopelessly in love with jazz. I have been dying to form a jazz quartet since I got a taste of one my sophomore year of high school, where we put together a group—rather spontaneously—for one gig. It was amazing and I haven’t been able to stop dreaming of forming another one since. I was trained classically for several years but dropped the classical style considering I didn’t want to pursue opera. The training left me with a pretty solid foundation and style, which I believe fits a jazz style well. Pursuing music as a vocalist has always been my dream from day one, so I’m ready to move full steam ahead and get out there!

EQUIPMENT

Well, I’m looking for a band, so preferably a piano, an upright bass, and a drum set. Maybe a rhythm guitarist! I just wanna jam with a bunch of great people who are eager to make some music together :)
