ABOUT

I am a vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter. My style/voice can be likened to Mary Chapin Carpenter, Grace Slick, Tracy Chapman, Natalie Merchant.
I Have been playing for fun most of my life, and have taken it to a professional level in recent years. I have just released my second CD "Collage".
I'm currently looking for other musicians to connect with for the potential of song writing collaboration, as well as performing and recording.
