Fierce but no one knows it yet, so get in early so we can make something absolutely fantastic together! Collabs get 1+1 to equal 4
I'm 22 years old but have been writing since I was 9. I've "studied" the ways of Gaga, David Bowie, Prince, Frank Ocean, and others - influenced in all aspects by pop legends. I am well versed in current pop culture and trends, while also having an extensive background (being a huge fan) of musicians from the 70's and 80's.
Listeners of my music will feel emotion first and foremost. I do not write just based on personal experiences; good songwriters and producers have the gift of shape shifting and story-telling.
Songwriting is my top service (lyrics and/or melodies), but I am also a trained singer, growing up in a choir setting. I can replicate stylistically any female singer you desire, just let me know what you are looking for!
I am currently a Music Industry student at Drexel University. I currently work with The Recording Academy, working personally with and learning from Grammy nominated and award winning musicians. I am a booking agent for indie rock and pop bands in Philly, allowing me to see first hand the new music and bands coming out of the scene. I have been trained as a FOH and monitor live sound engineer, and would love to help with any live productions if you are hiring. Also, I tour manage! I would consider songwriting, singing, and tour managing my main gigs. Please feel free to contact me to discuss working together!
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
