I am a motherfu*king power house singer and songwriter. As a young thing I was jamming to Jimmy Hendrix and bobbing my head to Marley. Influenced by some of the greatest musicians from a very young age, I have developed a unique singing style like no other. I do it all - funk, blues, classic rock, psychedelic rock, reggae, and I can even rap. I am a freestyle artist when it comes to writing lyrics - just play something and I will find the words to say without a stutter. I sing from the soul and have a raw sound you can feel tugging at your heart strings. I LOVE to jam. If living was free I'd jam all day, euuuryday.
So, here’s the skinny: I started singing.. when I started talking. I began making up songs at the age of 5 to keep my little sister entertained. I started writing those lyrics and melodies down in 3rd grade. I progressed in my lyricism and began taking voice lessons in middle school as things became more serious. I started to jam with other musicians in high school, and then bands in college. Music has been my whole life ~ it is my whole life.
In college I started singing with bands and collaborating with other musicians, singing and writing lyrics/melodies. That's when I decided I wanted to do something BIG with music. So, I got my degree in business marketing and management, applying all of my knowledge to the music industry.
I began my career in the music industry as a college student, interning as the marketing manager for a local festival. Out of college I started to build a name for myself as a business woman in the music industry on the East Coast. I worked with bands, events and festivals in: booking, promotion, writing press releases, selling merchandise, influencer marketing, social media management, sponsorship proposal, podcast network marketing and coordination, radio advertisement, print advertisement, digital advertisement, hiring entertainment, writing and negotiating contracts for venues and vendors, content marketing for websites, and I even put on a festival of my very own. Needless to say I have very strong ties in the East Coast music industry, as I was heavily involved in the scene and still am.
I wanted to learn the industry inside and out before I entered the scene as a musician. So when I had a band of my own I would know how to handle booking, promotion, contracts, and also have those connections and contacts to leverage ;)
Now that I know the industry it's my turn to take the stage. Let's make a band.
