ABOUT

I am a singer / background singer who's toured worldwide. I don't read music but play by ear. I play electric and acoustic rhythm guitar and some percussion. My strongest talent is harmonizing; I love singing backup and have been doing it for over 20 years. I've sung on several albums and love studio work. I initially got into music as an audio engineer intern on the PBS show Austin City Limits. Some of the musicians and bands I've worked with and played in include Maria Mckee (vox & rhythm gt), Dave Vanian and the Phantom Chords (vox & rhythm gt), Eliza Gilkyson (vox), Cotton Mather (vox), and several others. TV appearances include The Jay Leno Show, Later with Jools Holland, and a few others that most people won't remember! I currently reside in Los Angeles.
