I am a singer/songwriter who writes the lyrics, vocal melodies and harmonies for our songs. My dad accompanies me on guitar and writes the music for our songs. Our music is a mixture of pop, rock and jazz with a strong acoustic base.

Biography

I am 26 years old and have been writing melodies and lyrics for 16 years. Singing has always been a very important part of my life as well as something I'm incredibly passionate about. Having a singing career has been a dream of mine since I was very young.
I've recorded non professionally for 16 years; semi-professionally with my father for 8 years. I've performed at various events and facilities throughout these years from talent shows to coffee shops and parties. The education and music experience I've had have influenced my melodic, harmonic and lyrical creation in several ways. Throughout the courses in college and choir experience I've listened to various types of music from around the world, helping narrow down the type of music I like and am influenced by. Using that music education, I've been inspired to create more unique melodies and lyrics, trying to create differently from the more typical things I've heard. In addition to listening, my years of choir and local solo performances have provided me the opportunity to see many performing styles, helping me to focus on what I specifically want to portray as a performer, such as emotion and connection with the audience.
