ABOUT

I've been playing piano and keyboard for 2-3 years and recently took up the guitar (taking lessons at the old town school of folk in chicago, at an intermediate level). I know basic theory, I'm comfortable with singing, and although I'm only an intermediate musican, I'm already writing my own songs and feel like I understand song structure. I was an English major in college, have been doing creative writing for a while, and love the "poetry" of writing lyrics.

I'd like to collaborate with musicians that want to blend traditional folk styles with electronic sounds. I also have been playing around with Ableton Live for a while and am trying to learn synthesis. Any kind of blending of genres into a catchy pop structure is what I'm into, and I'm all about getting very noisey and experimental with the production but staying true to traditional structures of songs. I like to write catchy songs that sound different, "trippy," unique. I like to write lyrics that are kind of tragic and intense, but apply them to catchy hooks.
