Tracy Bonham, Fiona Apple, Dolores O'Riordan, Alanis Morissette, Holly McNarland, Tori Amos, and Bjork all had some huge party where things got a little crazy and through immaculate conception they all together came up with a voice baby - each of their influence is in my voice, if only in spirit.

Biography

I've had a hodgepodge of jobs in my life. I've worked in grocery stores, dollar stores, coffee shops, and animal clinics. No matter where I am working or what schooling I'm enrolled in, there's always a nagging voice in the back of my head questioning why I'm there. If it's worth it, what will result from it...analyzing it and picking it apart until it doesn't make sense anymore. The only time that voice keeps quiet is with my music. Writing songs and making music is the only thing I do that really feels like a personal accomplishment. That despite any job I do or place I live, any person I meet and connect with or goals I achieve; the most satisfying feeling I've ever gotten and ever will get is that moment after I finish the last word of a new song. That quiet moment of release that lets all the pieces fall into place for just a second before life comes rushing back in.

The earliest albums I can remember singing along with so often I had every song memorized were The Cranberries "No Need To Argue", Tracy Bonham's "The Burdens of Being Upright", Alanis Morissette's "Jagged Little Pill", and "Little Earthquakes" by Tori Amos. I listened to and loved the voices of these women singing from their hearts and taking risks with their voices and I strive to do the same and continuously evolve to the point of their effortless majestics.

Discography

My only claim to fame is In the 2008 winter edition of the Vancouver magazine One Cool Word, a song of mine "Fat" was selected to be in the mix cd of Vancouver musicians that comes with the magazine.
