Singer-songwriter/musician/poetress/artist. I was born into a highly musically inclined family thus I was born an musician/artist.
There's nothing quite like performing for people and seeing the reactions of people music has touched. I write with the intention of touching someone in someway hopefully helping people to never feel a lack of relation in this sometimes cruel and lonesome world.
Please join my Yahoo Group if you're interested in me as an artist or being notified of updates about me and my career. This group serves as my mailing list. Just easier to stay in touch with everyone this way. Hope to see you there! Keep the music alive and the love for it real ...
Affiliated BMI writer/composer/publisher; singer-songwriter-musician-poetress-artist born into a family with a strong musical background. Began singing at four years of age, playing the guitar at six, songwriting around ten years and expressing myself through visual art. Having roots in the styles of bluegrass and country music I soon after developed my own sound and playing style branching out from a wide variety of musical influences. Many styles like rock, folk, grunge, world, new age, classical, jazz, and the blues have amalgated into my own style.
In high school I began playing a classical guitar style thus implenting a more sophisticated sound into my compositions and in college jazz.
I've experience as a lead guitarist, back-up and lead vocalist in a local Rock band my senior year in high school. I've played various venues as a solo performer locally and regionally.
My goals in music and art are such that I am looking not only to continually broaden my creative aesthetic but touch people's lives abroad. May you listen and take something with you when you go ... God Bless.

Yes, I do play live. I play many different gigs and locations around the region. I am a solo performer so therefore I'm not suitable for a bar or a club but more laid back stages such as cafes, coffeehouses, open mic, dinners, etc.
I love to perform! Every gig has a special moment or two whether it be the people I meet or the places I see. I am currently looking for a band to tour.
