Bio

My "day job" is that of music teacher for a major school district in Wisconsin. I am the divorced mother of 2 adult daughters and have rediscovered my own music after my recent separation. I've been a songwriter since I was in my early teens when my major influences were Joni Mitchell, Janis Ian, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan...you get the picture. I'm still of the opinion that music is another form of poetry and much of my own music comes from that perspective. I like to keep it simple, pure and uncomplicated, yet "attractive" and diverse enough that the listener will not get bored. Everyone can relate to the stories and feelings in my songs. They have been built on my own life's stories, they are who I am, they also reflect my philosophies and own personal beliefs at times. Sometimes my songs pose questions and cause us to think about our lives in ways we may not have thought before, so in that vein, my music is sometimes a bit philosophical. Everyone has gone through similar experiences to mine therefore can relate to my music. I am recently rediscovering the performer in me as I had ignored that side of my life for so long getting caught up in the "American dream" of marriage, family, career, friends etc. but all that changed rather recently. Luckily, I look quite young for my age (and act it too), and can pull off performance rather eloquently. I see myself first and foremost as a songwriter and a performer second. I don't mind getting on stage for smaller venues or even larger ones if they present themselves, but ideally I hope to see my music published and performed by the other artists who are more in the forefront of the music industry. I also have the goal of recording and distributing a CD or two of my own. I am currently working on one and hope to release it by August of 2010.
