My music style I would describe as acoustic rock with influences of jazz, blues and
country. Last winter after a long hiatus from songwriter I went out and picked up
a gorgeous new guitar, then roamed the streets looking for places to play. Thanks
to wonderful scene in Norman, I have gotten back to one thing that has always been
a huge part of life: music.
I fell in love with music during kindergarten while living in Wisconsin as I listened
to “Green REM”…I was not yet aware that the band was R.E.M. and the album was Green.
My family moved around and landed in upstate New York where I began playing viola
(it’s like a violin, only cooler). At 16 I picked up my dad’s Fender Mustang (not
a car as you would expect at that age) and that’s when my songwriting began.
Those who know me know how much I love to learn about anything and everything, music
has been no exception. My background in orchestra, sound technology, music theory
and guitar lessons has given me a lot of tools to approaching songwriting. All I
needed was a little spark to get me back to doing what I love. Now I am thankful
to have wonderful people around me that inspire me in an area that continues to help
evolve me music in different directions.
