Having the opportunity to go out every day and pursue your dream. Working with other performers who inspire me to keep working on my craft. Getting a chance to perform, it’s what I love to do. I love the chance to perform for my hometown – its a chance to give back to all the people who have supported me locally.
What do you do in your free time? Right now I spend time with my fiancé, James, and work on my music. I love to see live music in my free time. It’s a chance to see others work, and feel connected to that world.What’s your favorite instrument? The voice, because there are so many things you can do with it. There are so many styles to explore. I am inspired by other artists because music is the life force that connects all of us.Who’s your favorite musician? Well, it depends what mood I am in. I love Ella Fitzgerald for jazz, and right now I am into an uncategorized, misinterpreted, timeless woman, Eva Cassidy.
What or who is your biggest influence? There are certain things that fire me up. For instance, when I see a Broadway show, I always leave inspired and it reminds me of why I am working so hard to achieve my dream. People from this community have always had a influence on me. Teachers, mentors, friends and most of all, my parents.What’s your favorite song? I wish I could say I have one, but I don’t have a favorite song. I have favorite time periods such as the jazz era, anybody that played at Woodstock, rock, bluegrass and the sounds of the eclectic artists.The Post Independent is asking accomplished musicians to participate in “In Tune With Musicians” by providing clear, descriptive and fun explanations about what makes them tick as artists, including experiences in their industry, hobbies and influences.
