"I choose Music and Music chooses me."

Born and raised in Calgary, I have immersed myself in music during my 18 years on this wonderful planet.  Becoming an emerging singer-songwriter and entrepreneur, while feeling enthusiastic about young adulthood, has given me so much to look forward to.

I love performing and remember tap dancing and singing at a talent show with a huge audience, when I was just 2 years old - it felt so comfortable, just as if I was at home. Growing up, there was always music playing in our house. Although my mother is not a musician, she would play a variety of music styles on the stereo; anything from classical to blues to pop. I think I learned to love and appreciate Jazz because of my grandmother. When spending time at her house, there was always a steady supply of great Jazz beats playing. I was scavenging through a garage sale once at the age of twelve, when I found an old Ukulele. That Ukulele has been the ultimate catalyst for my musical songwriting journey. I have fully dedicated myself, for the past 6 years, to working on my initially set musical goals - writing and recording my songs. I released my debut EP, Handmade Rumours in June 2017, and I have just launched my newest single, it’s real in March 2018. I have another single coming out by early June of this year. It is a true summertime bop.

My musical style and sound is an eclectic mix of emotive folk and soulful jazzy pop, with major influences from timeless voices such as Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, and Joni Mitchell. I like to describe my blended genre as “if Amy Winehouse and Carole King had a lovechild”. 

 

I draw inspiration from various styles of jazz, blues, pop, and many life experiences. When creating songs, I learn and grow during that process. It is such a positive way to deal with all that life throws at you; good or bad. I am deeply touched and continuously inspired when people tell me, that they too have connected with one of my songs. It is incredible to have people thank me for expressing their feelings in my musical work - ultimately it is all about connection for me.

It is my life experiences that serve as the inspiration for my music and fuel my debut album. I would not have been able to embark on this amazing journey without the love and support of my family, friends and fans. Thank you everyone.

Here is the single Sugarcane from Handmade Rumours. The album is available on iTunes https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/handmade-rumours-ep/1246046061
