I am a Singer/Songwriter from Los Angeles, CA. As an indie musician I've played hundreds of shows in the LA area and a few out of town such as Musikfest in Bethlehem, PA and I've been invited to play this August at The Copenhagen Songwriters Festival. My style is acoustic folk and I perform original music as well as cover songs.
This May I release my first full length album and head out on the road for a mini tour of the South East US!

Singers usually start early. We all know the kind – those children who seem to always be making up songs and singing. Somewhere along the line, a moment occurs when the singing child realizes it’s the single happiest thing he or she does in life.
Husner has sung as long as she can remember. She sang in chorus and choir as a young girl. By her teenage years, she knew it was more than a hobby.
“I begged, begged, and begged my parents for a piano, I don’t know how the heck I got one of those… then begged for a guitar,” she recalled. “I got a guitar on my 16th birthday and you couldn’t have found a happier girl in all the world..”
She began writing songs during college. At one point, she attended a Take Back the Night rally in support of rape victims and found herself performing in front of a large crowd of people.
“I got this giant standing ovation,” Husner said. “I was shocked. And I remember thinking, ‘Yeah, I think this is what I should do.”
But she actually put down the guitar for a few years after college, not picking it up again until four years ago, when she moved to the South Bay. She started performing at open mics and found a community of like-minded musicians.
“They told me I needed to keep going,” Husner said. “So I figured I should.”
Every singer fundamentally wants one thing: to be able to live inside the music. The dream is to make the stage your job, and this show allows that dream to also take flight a little bit more in the direction of reality.
“That would be the ultimate dream,” Husner said. “I don’t even need much. I just want to pay my rent. It would be awesome to be able to write songs, play with other folks, record a couple of albums…keep it simple and just be able to do this. That would be just a dream.”
