I played at the Winnipeg Folk Festival Young Performers Stage and have had airtime on CBC radio for three of my original songs. As well my Gospel Choir has been featured on CBC many times.



Born in Winnipeg. Folk is in my blood. As I moved to Niagara Falls at a young age I took a great appretiation for my earthly surroundings. I began playing piano at age 4. I began writing my own songs at Age 12 to motivate myself to get through personal struggles I was encountering at the time. As high school progressed so did my musical influences as well experience. I performed at local art galas, outdoor festivals, school and church. I was accepted on scholarship to York University for music where I study classical, jazz, rag-time, and gospel music. Last year I worked as a full-time lounge musician in a fine dining restaurant playing mostly covers as well classical piano. That is when I decided that I needed to play my own songs to fulfill my own spiritual needs. I believe my music is unique in the sometimes abstract nature of the lyrics as well the hybrid elements of classical and jazz chords and progressions. My vocals are unique as I recently have learned to accept my raspy voice. I believe that music can change. My songs are sometimes stories, and sometimes more simple telling of feelings about common things we all encounter as human beings. Fur Elise one of my favourite tracks is written in response to Beethoven's letter to God. Wrap your mind around this ; if Beethoven the eternal damned, was a girl named Elise, and was angry with God this is what she would say! And those are the lyrics to the song. I have a lot to learn but know that I am an adaptable musician with a very diverse background of many musical genres.
