Singer/songwriter from Seattle. Piano and guitar and singing, acoustic pop/rock.
I sang and played guitar for Tribute (starting when I was 14... my career has gone backwards, as this was my only band--so far--to receive commercial--not just college--radio play), Sofie Tucker, and Little Hand of the City... Now a solo artist, releasing a new album in 11/06.
I am trying to get to where I can play everywhere and play music for a living. Every time people come out to see me and seem to know my songs is a special moment. Sometimes I hear my music and say, "That's pretty good", but I guess I generally don't think about it, and then I'm really surprised when people are enthusiastic about it. I write from the heart and hope other people can relate to my words and melodies.
Beatles, Bob Dylan, Rufus Wainwright, Sondre Lerche, Elliot Smith. That pretty much gives me away.
A 1950's Wurlitzer electric piano (heavy, and only one tone, but I love it, and it's one of my main current instruments), a 1968 Yamaha acoustic (back when they made good instruments, in my opinion). I play most instruments through a 80 watt Twin Reverb w/ 2 X 12" speakers.
Hope you like my music, and more importantly, I hope you write me when and if you do like my music. And join my mailing list! I'll prolly be playing your town soon. :)
