Feeling a bit camera shy


When playing with my band, we often refer to ourselves as "Mile Off 21," the reason being.. we all live about a mile off of Norfolk County Road 21. Where I come from is very important to me, and is the basis to all roots music. I've lived and worked on a farm my entire life. I love nature, and being outdoors.. images of which are often reflected within my songs. The combination of my original writing and sound are what make my music so unique. I focus a lot on the sound of my voice. My own natural sound and flow are important to me, but so is musical technique in developing this sound. I like my music to sound neat and tidy, yet not over-analyzed and over-produced. The most important thing to me is getting a piece of my soul across to the listener. My musical influences include a range of people that I know personally, and artists whom I have never met. I have loved music since I was young, but not having come from a musical family, I did not have much guidance. Down my road lived a husband and wife who taught music. The theory aspect, the performing aspect, the writing aspect, and the creative aspect. This couple, Alison and Darrin Schott have been the biggest musical influence throughout my life introducing me to bluegrass and classic country music. Another personal musical influence who encouraged me to pursue music as a profession is Sara Veldhuis who upon hearing me sing one day worked at getting me different gigs, places to play, bands to open up for, etc. She introduced me to a lot of more contemporary folk/rock music. Other major musical influences include: Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Nora Jones, Sarah Harmer, Lori McKenna, Hank Williams, Dolly Parton, The Dixie Chicks, Alison Krauss, Crooked Still, Shawn Colvin, Jenny Whiteley and Joey Wright, Tim O'Brien, The Undesirables, Rose Cousins, Gillian Welch, Patsy Cline, Joni Mitchell, The Kinks, The Beatles, Elliott Smith etc. As an 18 year old girl in my final year of high school, I am working on improving my guitar skills, learning a variety of music, exposing myself to as much poetry as possible, creating some good quality recordings, playing within my local area, and preparing myself for next year. I intend to relocate to Toronto to further my education and seek greater musical opportunities than are offered in my small town.
