SEEKING

Keyboard, Piano.

ABOUT

I play very aggressively. I started as a Classical Pianist. I used to win and Judge National Events. I’ve played in Bands, Events, and more. I’m from a melting pot of Louisiana Jazz like Muddy Waters, Ragtime, Pentecostal Hills Praise, County Blues, Heavy Rock, Old Hippy Music, & More. My family Classically trained me- they were from the time of Bob Hope USO & some of the greats. They encouraged me to become in Theatre & Performance. In the past, I’ve had at least 16 years of Dance Training (Ballet, Tap, Jazz, some Ballroom), & have been a Vocalist. I’m proficient in improvisation, theory, sight-reading, and can play by ear. I’m not a Studio Musician. I have graduated College. I prefer to fully immerse myself one or two songs at a time and build from there.

I really prefer an Old Piano over a keyboard or something new (unless it’s Steinway, Kawaii, or a solid Wurtilizer). In my opinion, it’s more powerful & human. I have a stack keyboards, fairly lightweight electric piano, organ, etc. I can play flute & piccolo, basic left-handed rhythm guitar. Management Experience, have organized Community & Regional Events, etc.

I did the largest part of my work- during my teens and early twenties. Took time off for family. At this stage, I could either ease into it, or go full force. Willing to commit, work hard. I am not willing to volunteer my time or work for the experience of performance. I pass an extensive background check, clean driving record. I have passport & willing to travel with right incentive.

I value integrity & hard work.

Influences

Your life can change in seconds- live life, & incorporate its changes throughout your work. Once something is conquered, continuing to move forward, is importantly to me. I will not be happy playing the same songs, in the same place, for extended time (more than five years). I revel in the process of creating.
